Bernina Stitch Regulator

Easy Free Motion Quilting & Embroidery

BERNINA® Stitch Regulator

My mother is an avid quilter. For months she has wanted me to go see a Bernina machine that she had seen on television. This past Saturday we made the trip to S&S Vac & Appliances,Inc
The BERNINA® Stitch Regulator (BSR), has been the buzz at sewing shows and getting my hands on it made me totally understand why! I've tried free motion quilting and free motion embroidery and I enjoy it but I'm never totally thrilled with my results. The Bernina stitch regulator takes all accidents out of free motion possibilities!
I can not stress enough that if you love free motion work, you MUST try out this new feature!
The machine honestly does perfect, even free motion stitches. You can have the foot pedal all the way down and that machine is not going to sew until you move the fabric. The stitch regulator senses the movement and makes perfect stitches, eliminating the uneven stitches I often obtain when doing free motion work. It allows you to use the sewing machine as if it were a coloring tool. The Aurora QE offers the BERNINA® Stitch Regulator (BSR), but only with straight stitching. It's perfect for free motion quilting.
BUT if you want to really play with free motion embroidery, you must see the BERNINA® Stitch Regulator (BSR), in action on an Artista with the zigzag stitch. I immediately saw endless possibilities for free motion embroidery.
My 11 year old daughter tried free motion for the first time with the BSR and immediatly had perfect results. She was not happy when she wanted to try it again at home and discovered that I don't have the BSR. Someday my dear daughter, someday!
