BERNINA STITCH REGULATOR (BSR)
The BSR regulates perfect, equal-length straight and zigzag stitches at variable sewing speeds during free-motion quilting. BSR is optional for models B 475 QE and B 480 and is not available on the B 435.
BERNINA HOOK INSIDE
The BERNINA Hook changes everything. It’s fast while also being quiet. It’s efficient while housing a Jumbo bobbin. Keep in mind, this is no ordinary bobbin. It holds up to 70% more thread than standard bobbins and is front-loading for convenient, fast changes. That means fewer interruptions. Plus, with speeds up to 900 stitches per minute, projects get done in record time

Tension Not Releasing
Recently we were made aware of an intermittent issue with top tensions not releasing after a thread cut, thus causing
tension issues and bird nesting.
When an operator selects the auto thread
cutter and does not wait until the cutting
process is complete, lifts the presser foot
by hand or by FHS, there is a sporadic
chance the top tension is not releasing.
We have also seen the hour glass icon
With machines that have an automatic
presser foot lifter the timing between cutter and lifter action is governed by the
FW, therefore we do not see such issues.
For right now we can provide this solution.
If such issues appear, please let the consumer know to slow down and let the
machine cut the thread first before the
presser foot is lifted.
Lowering and then raising the presser
foot bar should release the top tension
disks. This may take 2-3 times to release.
If the hourglass appears it maybe required to reboot the machine.
