The BERNINA 480 sewing machine arrived at Heirloom Creations in style and in true BERNINA form.

BERNINA sewing machines are world renown for perfection, smoothness and deliver the ultimate sewing experience. High end sewers and designers are known to sew on a BERNINA because of its continue strength, quite sound and the way it’s built to last a lifetime.


The BERNINA 480 sewing machine includes all these and MORE. From the enlarged bobbin capacity to the numerous LED lights, the BERNINA 480 sewing machine can practically sew in the dark!

Tired of always running out of bobbin? BERNINA’s new bobbin size is the largest home sewing machine bobbin. And with a front loading bobbin, switching out bobbin thread can be done mid-stitch.

The beautiful touch screen offers precision adjustments in the finest of increments. BERNINA sewing machines allow for adjustments to be made in 1/10th millimeters settings for the most precise options of all home sewing machines.

And with a full 9mm stitch width all decorative stitches will pop off the fabric! Whether stitching on garments, home dec items or quilts, the BERNINA 480 sewing machine’s range of stitches will expand any sewer’s creativity levels to a new height.

Like most BERNINA sewing machines, the BERNINA 480 sewing machine comes with its own sewing table. No need to purchase a separate portable work surface, BERNINA’s sewing table offers a full free-arm sewing experience since it is suspended in air with no legs. This lets circular sewing projects easy lay beneath the machine while being sewn.

BERNINA positions the most used functions right at your finger tips. From the built-in thread cutter, the reverse button to the locking function, these nearby functions keep your hands close to the work area at all times.

The BERNINA 480 sewing machine also has a STOP/START function (green light shown in the photo above) that allows users to sew without using the foot control. Adjust the speed to a comfortable speed and sit back and watch the machine effortlessly continue to sew by itself.

If you are a quilter, the BERNINA sewing machines have amazing quilting options. From perfect 1/4″ seam allowances to the optional BERNINA Stitch Regulator, the BERNINA sewing machines are truly a quilter’s machine. The BERNINA 480 sewing machine is BERNINA Stitch Regular ready – meaning, this accessory can be added to this machine.
