Bernina of America, the premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, introduces the Bernina 560 (B 560). The B 560 features a five-inch high-resolution color touch screen to navigate its wide range of features and functions. It features a simple yet classic design that sewists will appreciate, along with 476 total stitch patterns, an automatic thread cutter and a stitch width up to 9 mm.
The B 560 also offers an optional embroidery module and is compatible with Bernina’s cutting-edge software, DesignWorks. The DesignWorks Software Suite features the CutWork, PaintWork and CrystalWork components that can transform the B 560 from an embroidery machine into a mixed media tool. With CutWork, shapes, patterns and designs can be cut from multiple layers of fabric. PaintWork allows the application of pen drawings to fabric and textiles. CrystalWork gives the ability to create crystal appliqué patterns for textiles and garments.
In addition, to the DesignWorks Software Suite, the B 560 takes sewists to a whole new level with the latest version of Bernina’s powerful embroidery software, Bernina Embroidery Software 7, which incorporates Three-Dimensional (3-D) effects. The B 560 is available at authorized Bernina Dealers nationwide.
