Memory function for your own creative ideas

Memory function for your own creative ideas

Thanks to the individual setting options of the BERNINA 580, stitches can be altered or combined in a wide variety of ways to suit your personal preference. With the BERNINA 580‘s intelligent memory function, these individual stitches, stitch patterns and stitch combinations remain set even after you turn off your machine, and are immediately available again the next time you turn the machine on. The generous 8MB memory provides the capacity for a large number of personal stitch combinations, letting you adapt the BERNINA 580’s library of stitches completely to your individual requirements. Impressive options that will enable and spark your creativity!

BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) included

BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) included

The patented BSR is a truly special high-tech presser foot that ensures top-quality stitching when free-motion quilting. When you sew with the BSR and lowered feed dog, your stitch length remains exactly the same all the time, even if the fabric is not always fed at the same speed. The BSR compensates for inconsistency in speed, so that straight and zigzag stitches are always the exact same length. Even those who are relatively inexperienced at free-motion sewing can reliably achieve high-quality results with the BERNINA 580.
