Threads are cut automatically and the needle lifts leaving your hands free to keep on creating as easily and quickly as you like. The extended freearm offers 7 inches right of the needle and allows plenty of room for projects, quilts and all kinds of creativity. The basic setting can be individually adjusted, ensuring the ideal pressure is always used for whatever fabrics and materials you choose. The on-screen, there-when-you-need-it, Sewing Consultant helps you find the right settings. Make suggested adjustments quickly with the multi-function knobs. 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 BERNINA Hook keeps the stitches consistent and precise, and fast too, sewing at a maximum speed of 900 stitches per minute.
