BERNINA Stitch Regulator

Sew and quilt more beautifully and with ease

Inspired by textile artists, after an 18-month development period, the BERNINA innovation team created a small sensation in 2005. They designed a foot that recognises sewing speed with the aid of a sensor, and controls stitch length when sewing with the feed dogs lowered. All over the world free motion quilters love to work with the BERNINA Stitch Regulator. Some of them can't imagine a life without BSR. For the 10th anniversary of the BERNINA Stitch Regulator, we’ve asked customers and experts from around the world to give us their opinion on the BSR, as well as to send us a BSR sewing project with instructions. In this anniversary year, we’ll be introducing different people and their projects every month.

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator helps you achieve perfect results when free-motion sewing– and has done so for 10 years!
The technology of the revolutionary BSR System guarantees even stitch lengths, regardless of sewing speed, stitch length and how the fabric is guided.

The result: top-quality textile design, no matter what creative techniques you use:

  • Free-motion embroidery
  • Appliqué
  • Thread painting
  • Quilting
  • Sewing lace
Whether sewing straight or zigzag stitches, the BERNINA Stitch Regulator is distinguished by its precision. Particularly with intricate and complex designs, an even stitch length is of crucial importance for achieving a flawless appearance.
The BSR’s built-in sensor controls the sewing speed, which would otherwise be controlled with the foot control. The advantage is that you can concentrate entirely on the movement of the fabric when sewing and quilting with the BSR, ensuring that your creative ideas are perfectly realised with a constant stitch length.
