BERNINA 570 QE – the all-rounder for sewing, quilting and embroidery

Exclusive! Total Stitch Control

The B 570 QE provides an exclusive level of stitch control. Whether altering the stitch length (up to 5 mm), width (up to 5.5 mm) or needle position (up to 11) or even creating custom combinations, you’ll appreciate the convenience of a machine that remembers the stitch details for you.
The B 570 QE is a genuine all-rounder that can sew, quilt and embroider. The touchscreen makes changing from sewing to embroidery mode a breeze. There are 50 embroidery designs to choose from, and you can upload your own embroidery designs via a USB connection. The designs can be edited right on the touchscreen with the Rotate, Mirror, Rescale, and Color Change functions.


Greater Sewing Comfort

Unique to BERNINA, the Free Hand System (FHS) raises and lowers the presser foot while releasing thread tension and lowering the feed dog, leaving your hands free to guide your project. Also included is a practical extension table with ample space to support your larger sewing projects.

Plenty of Room to Expand Your Creativity

The B 570 QE was designed with your sewing future in mind. A variety of special accessories and presser feet are included with the machine. When you are ready to expand your options, you’ll find a broad range of accessories available. Whatever new techniques you want to explore, you’ll find the right accessories to help you to enhance your sewing and quilting skills.

BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) included

The BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) is designed to help you master free-motion techniques by keeping stitches consistent at variable sewing speeds. The BSR offers confidence for the beginner and additional insurance for the experienced quilter. The BSR comes standard with the B 570 QE.

More Memory Options

Let your B 570 QE keep track of the details with multiple Memory functions. It remembers the changes you make to the stitches as you use them in your sewing session. It will also remember your favorite stitch settings for each stitch when saved in the long-term memory. For creative applications, you can save up to 70 stitches in a combination.

Extensive Stitch library

The B 570 QE offers up to 642 utility and decorative stitches, including an automatic buttonhole. Stitches can be selected via the color touchscreen. The user-friendly interface of the B 570 QEE allows you to navigate quickly and easily. The modern color touchscreen displays all your settings, and the Creative Consultant offers on-screen help and support.

Accessories Included

Reverse pattern foot # 1

Reverse pattern foot # 1 is the ideal presser foot for sewing forward and reverse-feed utility and decorative stitches.


Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A

Depending on the model, Buttonhole foot with slide # 3A determines the desired buttonhole length for identical buttonholes either via a sensor or manually.


Zipper foot # 4

Thanks to its narrow, centrally positioned toe, Zipper foot # 4 can stitch very close to the zipper coils, allowing it to sew the zipper on neatly.


Blindstitch foot # 5

Blindstitch foot # 5 is suitable for sewing blind hems on all fabrics. When this foot is used, you can hardly see the stitching from the front.


Open embroidery foot # 20

Open embroidery foot # 20 / 20C / 20D is ideal for embroidering with your sewing machine. The indentation in the sole of the presser foot allows it to glide smoothly over dense stitches.

Thanks to its special tear-drop shape, Embroidery foot #26 allows you to embroider with the embroidery module and to darn delicate fabrics.


BERNINA rotary hook bobbin case for embroidery

The BERNINA rotary hook bobbin case for embroidery improves the appearance of the stitch pattern considerably.


Medium hoop - for medium-sized designs

The Medium hoop is a useful tool for the accurate embroidering of medium-sized projects with the BERNINA embroidery machine.


Large oval hoop

The Large oval hoop is suitable for both design combinations and extensive embroidery designs. The template makes quick work of accurately positioning the project in the hoop.


Free-arm slide-on table for ultimate sewing comfort

The Slide-on free-arm table is a practical table-extension mechanism for free-arm sewing projects which won’t affect free-arm function when in place.


Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter

The Free-Hand System (FHS) / Presser foot lifter lets you raise the presser foot and lower the feed dog with your knee. Recommended particularly for applique or any project requiring pivoting and getting bulky projects under the presser foot easily.
