BERNINA 535 (No Embroidery)

$3999, SALE (Call, email or come by for in-store sale price)

The Bernina 535 is the perfect choice for the sewist who needs a little more room for quilts, garments or home decor items. The extra lighting that comes with the extra throat space is very helpful as well. The 535 would be a nice upgrade for someone who has an older Bernina with the Bernina Stitch Regulator because you can use that BSR foot on the 535. The faster machine makes freemotion quilting with the BSR even easier than on the older machines! And the jumbo bobbins mean less stopping and starting for thread changes.

The Bernina 535 may be purchased with an embroidery module or without, making it the obvious choice if you're just starting with embroidery, or if you're thinking of upgrading later.
