Master hand-guided quilting quickly with the assistance of the integrated BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulator available on both sit-down and frame models. Equipped with dual optical sensors, one on each side of the stitch hole in the needle plate, the BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulator allows for very precise sensing of machine and fabric movement. Simple to activate and customizable using the machine’s touch screen, the BERNINA Longarm Stitch Regulator keeps your stitches even and consistent regardless of how simple or complex your quilt motif may be. Choose between three BSR modes one of which is basting. A manual mode with no stitch regulation is also available.
BERNINA brings the best of the domestic machine world to the Longarm world with a simple to navigate color touch screen. Totally customizable, it includes useful functionalities with a stitch counter and built-in tutorial.
The forward position of the thread stand is easy to reach and the threading path simple to follow. The integrated bobbin winder is just one of the small details that make this machine unique.
The BERNINA longarm models offer the industry’s only presser foot tension release for threading ease. The exclusive tension system features numeric tension settings making it very easy to use a variety of thread types with success.

LED lighting along the length of the machine and above the needle illuminates the quilt for enhanced visibility. The brightness is dimmable or can even be turned off, an especially helpful option when working with white thread on white fabric.
