Overview

Love to quilt? So does the B 570 Quilters Edition.

Suzy Williams, our expert talks about the B 570 QE

Watch our video and get to know the great features of the B 570 QE.

For these reasons Suzy loves the B 570 QE:

Enough space for bigger projects

  • Handle big quilts with ease
  • Live up to your quilt creativity
  • Enough room for comfortable quilting

The B 570 QE with its extended freearm offers 8.5" right of the needle. Perfect to handle big quilting projects with the greatest of ease.

Keep your hands on the fabric

  • Adjust your quilt safely
  • Tiny adjustments can be done quickly
  • Rotate, turn & do appliqués easily

Thanks to the hover function the foot raises, but the needle stays in the fabric, making it easy to maneuver and turn as you appliqué and quilt.

Achieve perfect stitch results

  • Achieve perfect, equal-length stitches
  • Perfect results no matter which speed
  • Perfection comes standard

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator guarantees precise stitch quality and results at any speed during free-motion quilting.

 

Quilt all materials with ease

  • Enjoy superb fabric feed on both sides
  • Quilt many layers without puckers
  • Excellent for slippery or fine materials

The innovative BERNINA Dual Feed feeds the fabric evenly from above and below. It is easy to engage and tucks away when not in use.

Automatic features save time

  • Thread is cut automatically
  • Save time for your creative ideas
  • More time to focus on your quilt

Thanks to the automatic thread cutter, your thread is cut with an easy one-button operation. Keeps your work flowing easily and saves time.

Quilters love Patchwork foot #97

  • Designed for straight-stitching
  • Ideal for sewing ¼" seam allowances
  • Extra insurance to experienced piecers

The Patchwork foot #97 is the special accessory for the most accurate feeding and stitching when piecing patchwork blocks.

Accessories Included

BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) adapts precisely to your current sewing speed to produce absolutely consistent stitching.

 

Reverse pattern foot # 1C

Reverse pattern foot # 1C is the ideal presser foot for sewing forward and reverse-feed utility and decorative stitches.

 

Reverse pattern foot # 1D

Reverse pattern foot # 1D is the ideal presser foot for sewing forward and reverse-feed utility and decorative stitches.

 

Overlock foot # 2A

Overlock foot # 2A lets you neaten seams easily and sew high-quality hems, waistbands and overlock seams on knit fabrics.

 

Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A

Depending on the model, Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A determines the desired buttonhole length for identical buttonholes either via a sensor or manually.

 

Zipper foot # 4D

Thanks to its narrow, centrally positioned toe, Zipper foot # 4D can stitch very close to the zipper coils, allowing it to sew the zipper on neatly.

 

Open embroidery foot # 20C

Open embroidery foot # 20 / 20C / 20D is ideal for embroidering with your sewing machine. The indentation in the sole of the presser foot allows it to glide smoothly over dense stitches.

 

Patchwork foot # 97

The Patchwork foot is ideal for patchworking and other exact work.

 

Free-arm slide-on table for more sewing space

The BERNINA Free-arm slide-on table offers greater comfort thanks to an increased sewing area, without affecting free-arm function when sewing.

 

Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter

The Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter lets you raise the presser foot and lower the feed dog with your knee. Recommended particularly when working with delicate fabrics.
