The Bernina B480

Want to go where your creativity takes you without being limited? The B 480, B 475 QE and B 435 let you make all the creative decisions. Like choosing the stitch length and width or deciding the needle position. If you want the needle down when it stops, you got it. And all that control is conveniently located at your fingertips on the large, intuitive touch screen.

Automatic features save time 

No more manual threading
Press a button to cut your thread
Save time for more creativity
 

Threads are cut automatically, or if you prefer, magically. Even the needle lifts leaving your hands free to keep on creating.

Keep your hands on the fabric

Hands-free sewing is reality 
Hands are free to guide the fabric
Simultaneously raises/lowers presser foot and feed dog

The BERNINA Free Hand System lets you lift or lower the presser foot using only the knee lifter, allowing hands to guide your projects to bigger and better things.

Nice, easy perfect stitches 

Sew perfect stitches with 9mm stitch width 
Sew even longer with the jumbo bobbin
Conveniently, front-load bobbin

Perfect precision is achieved with each stitch thanks to the BERNINA Hook. Plus, projects are done faster with speeds up to 900 stitches per minute.

Adjustable Presser Foot Pressure

Reduce pressure for thick materials

Individual adjustment is easy to make, ensuring the ideal pressure is achieved for any and all materials no matter how thick or delicate.

The Sewing and Knitting Centre did a long overdue service on my rather ancient sewing... machine and did a marvelous job. I used my machine for the first time today and it really purred along where before it was definitely clattering along! They kept me well informed with the progress of the service and it was ready before the promised time. An advantage is the easy parking outside or in adjacent streets. Would recommend them.read more

I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a... particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and again.read more

Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any... assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this company.read more
