All Round

Bernina 475QE

This machine confidently handles all types of projects, due to the superb build quality that we have come to expect from Bernina along with nifty features and ease of use. It has 7 inches of workspace to the right of the needle, which is larger than standard, but not too much to hinder portability. Within the LCD touch screen, you will find 840 stitch options, including Utility, decorative, alphabets, and 10 1-step buttonhole options, along with tutorials and the sewing consultant which is always on hand to help you get perfect results every time. A built-in needle threader and auto thread cutter make for quick operation and the jumbo bobbin means you’ll run out of thread less often. A neat 5.5mm stitch width, extension table, knee lift, and Bernina Stitch regulator capabilities, make this a truly versatile machine.

Bernina’s range of machines features series 3, 4, 5 & 7. With the 3 being the start of the range as you move to 4 series machines, the size is increased, and touchscreen functionality. The 5 series gives you more space again, plus the introduction of more automated features, don’t worry though, all Bernina machines have a built-in Needle threader.
