BERNINA 570 QE –the all-rounder for sewing quilting and embroidery

Absolute stitch control

Exclusive! Total Stitch Control

The B 570 QE provides an exclusive level of stitch control. Whether altering the stitch length (up to 5 mm), width (up to 5.5 mm) or needle position (up to 11) or even creating custom combinations, you’ll appreciate the convenience of a machine that remembers the stitch details for you.
The B 570 QE is a genuine all-rounder that can sew, quilt and embroider. The touchscreen makes changing from sewing to embroidery mode a breeze. There are 50 embroidery designs to choose from, and you can upload your own embroidery designs via a USB connection. The designs can be edited right on the touchscreen with the Rotate, Mirror, Rescale, and Color Change functions.


Built-in BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)

A special highlight of the BERNINA 570 QE is the BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) <>, which ensures highest precision when free-motion sewing. Even when the feed-dog is lowered and the fabric is being manually guided, the sophisticated BSR technology ensures stitches that are always of the exact same length, by recognizing and compensating for differences in sewing speed. This innovative BERNINA 570 QE function allows even inexperienced free-motion quilters to produce accurate and consistent stitch lengths for a precise stitch pattern – right from the get-go! Thanks to its BSR functionality, precise free-motion sewing with the BERNINA 570 QE is a relaxed affair – ideal for sewing and quilting at the highest level.

More Memory Options

Let your B 570 QE keep track of the details with multiple memory functions. It remembers the changes you make to the stitches as you use them in your sewing session. It will also remember your favorite stitch settings for each stitch when saved in the long-term memory. For creative applications, you can save up to 70 stitches in a combination

Extensive stitch library

The B 570 QE offers up to 642 utility and decorative stitches, including an automatic buttonhole. Stitches can be selected via the color touchscreen. The user-friendly interface of the B 570 QE allows you to navigate quickly and easily. The modern color touchscreen displays all your settings, and the Creative Consultant offers on-screen help and support.
