The Bernina B480

Want to go where your creativity takes you without being limited? The B 480, B 475 QE and B 435 let you make all the creative decisions. Like choosing the stitch length and width or deciding the needle position. If you want the needle down when it stops, you got it. And all that control is conveniently located at your fingertips on the large, intuitive touch screen.

Automatic features save time 

No more manual threading
Press a button to cut your thread
Save time for more creativity

Threads are cut automatically, or if you prefer, magically. Even the needle lifts leaving your hands free to keep on creating.

Keep your hands on the fabric

Hands-free sewing is reality 
Hands are free to guide the fabric
Simultaneously raises/lowers presser foot and feed dog

The BERNINA Free Hand System lets you lift or lower the presser foot using only the knee lifter, allowing hands to guide your projects to bigger and better things.
