BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)*

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) is designed to assist you in mastering freemotion
techniques by keeping straight or zigzag stitches consistent at variable sewing speeds. The BSR offers confidence for the beginner and additional assurance for the experienced quilter. *The BSR is available as an optional accessory for the B 580.

Exclusive! Total Stitch Control

The BERNINA 580 provides an exclusive level of stitch control. Whether altering the stitch length (up to 5 mm), width (up to 9 mm) or needle position (up to 11) or even creating custom combinations, you’ll appreciate the convenience of a machine that remembers the stitch details for you.

More Memory Options

Let your B 580 keep track of the details with multiple memory functions. It remembers the changes you make to the stitches as you use them in your sewing session. It will also remember your favorite stitch settings for each stitch in a long-term memory. For creative applications, you can save multiple combinations of sewing stitches as well as embroidery compositions in memory. Combination memory and the My Designs
folder keeps you organized.

Extensive Stitch and Design Library

The B 580 includes a library of over 200 stitches, conveniently stored by category for a wide variety of applications, including the one step automatic buttonhole function — for consistent buttonhole length time after time. Whatever your sewing project, you’ll find the perfect stitch. Over 100 high quality embroidery designs are built right in, along with seven elegant fonts for personalizing your projects. Mirror image, rotate, combine and resize designs right on the embroidery screen. Expand your embroidery library with additional designs imported to the machine via the USB port.

Greater Sewing Comfort

Unique to BERNINA, the Free Hand System (FHS) comes standard with the B 580. The FHS raises and lowers the presser foot while releasing thread tension and lowering the feed dog, leaving your hands free to guide your project. Also included is a practical extension table with ample space to hold your larger sewing projects.

Magical Sewing and Embroidery Possibilities

The BERNINA 580 sewing and embroidery machine is simplicity in itself. The clear and easy to navigate color touch screen gives you access to hundreds of stitch options and beautiful built-in embroidery designs. Onscreen editing features for sewing and embroidery provide even more design flexibility. You will have everything you need to set your imagination free.
