Blocks Made Easy!
The hallmark of excellence in free-motion techniques is the ability to keep the stitch length even and consistent as the fabric is guided without the assistance of the feed dog. The BERNINA Stitch Regulator provides beginners with the confidence to master increasingly popular free-motion techniques. For more experienced free-motion stitchers, the BERNINA Stitch Regulator offers the added security of consistent stitch length, providing the confidence to try more challenging techniques.
BERNINA Stitch Regulator Soles
The BERNINA Stitch Regulator #42 has three interchangeable soles. Easy to change, these soles make it easy to sew a wide range of free-motion techniques, offering variety and versatility in the final stitched results.
Attaching the BERNINA Stitch Regulator
The BERNINA Stitch Regulator is attached to the machine in a two-step process: the foot is attached along with a connecting cable to allow the sensor on the foot to work with the electronics of the machine to regulate stitches.
BERNINA Stitch Regulator Modes
The two modes of the BERNINA Stitch Regulator offer choices to fit the style and comfort level of the stitcher.
BERNINA Stitch Regulator Mode 1
When BSR Mode 1 is selected, the needle immediately starts to move up and down, with or without fabric under it. This is the ideal mode for quilting points and/or corners as the needle continues to stitch.
BERNINA Stitch Regulator Mode 2
When working in BSR Mode 2, the motor is engaged only when the fabric is moved under the foot, giving the stitcher time to stop and think about the path the needle is taking.
