BERNINA 590

BERNINA 590E

The perfect machine for Sewists, Quilters & Embroiderers

Wide selection of stitches, embroidery designs and functions

Whatever you wish to sew or embellish, the BERNINA 590 puts a wide range of stitches at your disposal. With 838 stitches in all, including 186 decorative stitches, you've got a generous selection from which to choose - and all stitches can be sewn up to a width of 9 mm, which is particularly attractive for embellishment. In addition, 7 alphabets for sewing and 7 alphabets for embroidery are at your fingertips. What's more, the 100 embroidery designs can be accessed in a separate embroidery mode and adapted on the touchscreen: rotating, mirroring, sizing up or down or altering the stitch pattern are quickly accomplished, thanks to the 590's intuitive operation. Using the memory function, it's a cinch to permanently save your customized stitches and embroidery designs.
