BERNINA stitch regulator function included

With the factory-installed BSR function of the BERNINA 560, upgrading the optional BERNINA stitch regulator (BSR) is possible at any time. The patented BSR is a high-tech presser foot that provides support when sewing freehand. With its recessed transporter, the BSR ensures that the stitch length always remains the exact same length, even if the material is not fed with an even speed. The BSR recognises deviations and compensates for them so that freehand straight and zigzag stitches are always made with an identical stitch length.

Intuitive operation using a modern touchscreen

The BERNINA 560 is equipped with a large, bright TFT touchscreen via which you can retrieve your various functions in the blink of an eye. Using the touchscreen you can easily switch between sewing mode and embroidery mode. Large, informative icons ensure that you can readily find the desired function on the BERNINA 560 without having to look too hard. The self-explanatory touchscreen allows for the intuitive operation of the BERNINA 560. Looking through the manual becomes unnecessary, and even seamstresses with very little experience can swiftly switch between various stitches, embroidery designs and patterns, and functions of the BERNINA 560.
