BERNINA Q 20 Longarm
Designed, engineered and hand crafted in Switzerland, the BERNINA Q 20 Longarm offers 20 inches of throat space to finish large quilts comfortably. Among its features are an exclusive tension control system, a built-in needle threader, and a sewing speed up to 2,200 stitches per minute. The BERNINA Q 20 Longarm is available now at authorized BERNINA Dealers nationwide. Two BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulators are located on each side of the stitch holes in the BERNINA Q 20 Longarm’s needle plate. Equipped with dual optical sensors, the BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulators allow very precise sensing of the machine and fabric movement, regardless of how simple or complex a quilt pattern may be. This allows for uniform and even stitches.
In addition, the new Longarm machine features a one-of-a-kind electronically controlled tension system and the home industry’s only presser foot tension release for threading ease. The tension system features numeric settings that make it simple to adjust the thread tension and track a variety of thread types and combinations. The thread stand is also positioned forward to make it easy to reach.
