The Bernina 480 is perfect for someone who wants a bit more than just the basic machine. Jumbo bobbins, an upgraded foot control, more throat space, adjustable presser foot pressure and an automatic thread cutter make sewing and quilting faster and easier. Wider decorative stitches are beautiful on everything from clothing and home decor to crazy quilts.
