Livia Naef & Nelia Puhze, our experts talk about the BERNINA 535 E

Watch our video and get to know the great features of the B 535 E.

Livia & Nelia love the B 535 E for these reasons:

Get the right pressure everytime

  • Reduce pressure for thick materials

Ensures that the ideal pressure is always used for the selected stitch. The basic setting can be individually adjusted.

Perfect tension for perfect stitches

  • Achieve beautiful stitch results

Thanks to the Adaptive Thread Tension you get optimal thread tension for perfect stitch quality on both sides of the fabric.

More space for creative freedom

  • Realize big projects with ease
  • Enough space for your creations
  • Embroidery module optional

The extended freearm offers 8.5" right of the needle. Therefore you will enjoy a grand sewing area for grand ideas.

 

Ask your on-screen support

  • Modern colorful touch screen
  • Easy to use with simple navigation
  • On-screen support when needed

The Sewing Consultant helps you to find the right settings. Adjust suggested alterations quickly with the multifunction-knobs.

Sew quieter, faster, longer, better

  • Sew perfect stitches with 5.5 mm stitch width
  • Jumbo bobbin to sew longer
  • Frontload the bobbin with new thread

The BERNINA Hook keeps the stitches consistent and precise with a maximum speed of 1,000 stitches per minute.

Automatic features save time

  • No manual thread cutting

Thanks to the automatic thread cutter your threads are cut automatically and the needle will be lifted afterwards.

Accessories Included

Reverse pattern foot # 1

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

 

Overlock foot # 2

Overlock foot # 2 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 # 4

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

 

Open embroidery foot # 20

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

 

Drop-shaped embroidery foot # 26

Thanks to its special tear-drop shape, Drop-shaped embroidery foot # 26 allows you to embroider with the embroidery module and to darn delicate fabrics.

 

Embroidery module M

Embroider creatively like a pro - with an embroidery module you can turn your embroidery-compatible BERNINA sewing machine into an embroidery computer.

 

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 for appliqué or any project requiring pivoting and getting bulky projects under the presser foot easily.
