The optional BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) also puts maximum-precision free-motion sewing and quilting within your grasp. The easy-to-attach foot imparts full BSR functionality to the BERNINA 530 and provides exact stitch lengths when free-motion sewing, even at variable speeds – increased precision that makes for an accurate, picture-perfect quilting result. This sophisticated technology evens out variations in speed during manual guiding of the fabric, thereby creating a consistent and precise stitch pattern. The optional BSR function of the BERNINA 530 is a valuable tool that you soon won’t be able to live without!
With the BERNINA 530, sewing buttonholes of the exact same length is no longer a problem. Simply set the desired buttonhole length and sew. The BERNINA 530 saves the set length and automatically repeats it with each successive buttonhole, as many times as you wish. You achieve precise results that meet the highest standards with no resetting and very little effort. This one-step automatic system demonstrates the BERNINA 530’s high standards for comfort, convenience, and ease of operation. A winning combination of cutting-edge know-how, long-standing experience, and Swiss precision.
The basic equipment of the BERNINA 530 encompasses148 different stitches covering a wide range of uses: 22 utility and 117 decorative stitches including 12 quilting stitches are available to users from the get-go, allowing you to complete a wide array of sewing and quilting projects to the highest standards. In addition, the BERNINA 530 offers nine different buttonhole programs, four sewing alphabets, and a range of practical functions such as mirror function or reverse sewing, and allows you to save your own stitches and stitch combinations in both the short- and long-term memory. With this feature, you can program your own creations in the BERNINA 530 to be available for you again the next time you start up your machine. Up to 100 stitch variations can be permanently combined and saved in this way – memory aplenty for your creativity and for your most frequently used stitch patterns and combinations.
