BERNINA 580: The multi-talent for sewing, embroidering and quilting

Wide selection of stitches, embroidery designs and functions

Whatever you wish to sew or embellish, the BERNINA 580 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 580’s intuitive operation. Using the memory function, it’s a cinch to permanently save your customized stitches and embroidery designs.


The B 580 now includes an accessories box

All sewing tools such as presser feet, needles and bobbins can be stored in the convenient accessories box. There is even room for large presser feet, such as the buttonhole foot. The brackets for the feet are adjustable. The drawers also provide plenty of space for easy storage of smaller sewing tools. The accessories box is positioned securely on your sewing table with the retractable stand feet. The transparent doors provide a clear overview of all your sewing tools.


Intuitive operation via the high-resolution touchscreen

Unique in the 5 Series line, the BERNINA 580 boasts a large bright touchscreen affording quick access to its wide range of features and functions. Large descriptive icons ensure easy access to the desired BERNINA 580 function. The intuitive touchscreen allows for efficient operation of the BERNINA 580, making look-up in the manual unnecessary and allowing even fairly inexperienced sewers to switch quickly between the different stitches, stitch patterns, embroidery designs and functions of the BERNINA 580.

Memory function for your own creative ideas

Thanks to the individual setting options of the BERNINA 580, stitches can be altered or combined in a wide variety of ways to suit your personal preference. With the BERNINA 580‘s intelligent memory function, these individual stitches, stitch patterns and stitch combinations remain set even after you turn off your machine, and are immediately available again the next time you turn the machine on. The generous 8MB memory provides the capacity for a large number of personal stitch combinations, letting you adapt the BERNINA 580’s library of stitches completely to your individual requirements. Impressive options that will enable and spark your creativity!

Built-in BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR)

The patented BSR is a truly special high-tech presser foot that ensures top-quality stitching when free-motion quilting. When you sew with the BSR and lowered feed dog, your stitch length remains exactly the same all the time, even if the fabric is not always fed at the same speed. The BSR compensates for inconsistency in speed, so that straight and zigzag stitches are always the exact same length. Even those who are relatively inexperienced at free-motion sewing can reliably achieve high-quality results with the BERNINA 580.


From sewing to embroidering with a single click

The BERNINA 580 is factory-equipped with an embroidery function and comes with the embroidery module as standard. With 100 embroidery designs already built into the BERNINA 580’s software, you’ll have immediate access to a wide range of attractive designs for ambitious embroidery projects, which you can easily and quickly select via the touchscreen.The BERNINA 580’s combination of sewing and embroidery functionality lets you bring even more variety to your sewing projects. User-friendly menu navigation gives you quick access to all the important functions.
