Fewer stops and starts is the result of a bigger bobbin that holds up to 70% more thread than standard bobbins. And since it is conveniently changed from the front, there's no need to remove your project.

From feet to bobbins, a well-designed accessory makes your sewing life better. A variety of Bernina presser feet or soles come standard on 4 Series machines, making it easy to do what you want to do. To keep them handy and organised, a nicely designed accessory case is included. The B 480 model even comes with a magnetic see-through accessory box. Feet aren't the only accessory included. There's a slide-on freearm table that adds spacious support around the needle. Four bobbins and a dust cover complete the smart accessory package.

When more options are what you want, a 4 Series machine is what you need. There's a huge choice of sewing and decorative stitches as well as alphabets. These machines offer over 150 to 250 decorative stitches and up to 5 alphabets. And the 480 is full of special quilting stitches. The choices are many and every one of them yours.

With 27 quilting stitches plus 29 utility stitches and 5 sewing alphabets pre-loaded and ready to go, the Bernina 480 is well equipped for all your creative needs.

The amazing BSR regulates perfect, equal-length straight and zigzag stitches at variable sewing speeds during free-motion quilting. BSR is optional for models 480 and B480 and is not available on the 435.

Every aspect of the stitch, both seen and unseen, is perfected with the optimal thread tensioning of a 4 Series machine. Achieve permanent control of the thread tension once it's adapted to the thread and fabric. Even while sewing, the thread tension adjusts automatically. And the innovative Bernina Hook keeps every stitch consistent and precise.

The Bernina Hook changes everything. It's fast while also being quiet. It's efficient while housing a Jumbo bobbin. Keep in mind, this is no ordinary bobbin. It holds up to 70% more thread than standard bobbins and is front-loading for convenient, fast changes. That means fewer interruptions. Plus, with speeds up to 900 stitches per minute, projects get done in record time!

7" of space to the right of the needle allows room for projects, quilts and even more creativity.

The Bernina Free Hand System lets you lift or lower the presser foot using only the knee lifter, keeping your hands free to guide your projects. The knee lifter is standard on the 480 and 475QE and optional on the 435.

Apply pressure or take it off. That's what this feature is all about. Thick fabrics need less pressure so they glide under the foot with ease. Thinner more delicate fabrics need more pressure for perfectly even stitches. Raise or lower the pressure with the click of a dial. It's so simple.

Be as creative as you dare with your stitches by editing directly from the easy-to-navigate touch screen while you work. Simply tap the screen to choose your favourite stitches. Tap. Or maybe you want to combine different stitches. Tap. Or create a custom pattern with Pattern Repeat. Simple. Creative.

There are many features just waiting to make your day easier. Like the multi-function knobs, just two knobs, but so many functions and so easy to operate even while sewing. Or the reverse sewing and securing buttons that are conveniently located at the front of the machine and easy to reach with the thumb. Plus, you'll love the vast selection of decorative stitches and alphabets. And freearm sewing makes it convenient and easy to handle closed projects, like cuffs.
