bernette b05 Academy Sewing Machine

Your robust, durable, and powerful all-rounder!

Equipped with a wide range of functions, 30 exclusive stitches, and a fast motor, the b05 ACADEMY lets you quickly realize your wildest ideas!

For tricky projects that require a slower pace, you can reduce the maximum sewing speed.

It comes with an impressive 12 presser foot soles — for every sewing task, an easy-to-attach finger guard, and even more sewing space with the large, convenient extension table.

Exclusive stitch selection for all your needs — besides offering 30 essential stitches including the 1-step-buttonhole, the b05 exclusive stitch set features also the two most wanted stitches: Lycra Stitch for super-stretchy materials and Blanket Stitch.

Perfect fabric feeding made easy — ensuring an even fabric feeding has never been easier thanks to the adjustable presser foot pressure. Unwanted gathering of both thin and thick fabrics is the past! Adjust the upper thread tension to optimally balance the upper and bobbin thread.

With help of the retractable feed dog, you will effortlessly have evenly spaced stitches when darning or free-motion sewing. Just lower the feed dog by a simple move on the back of your machine.

Want to go full speed or half speed Tricky sewing projects Then the half-speed mode with a maximum 650 spm is perfect for you! Are you sewing long straight seams Then feel the sewing flow at a sewing speed of up to 1110 stitches per minute. The speed limiter makes both possible.

The easy-to-attach and included super-large slide-on table makes sewing and fabric guiding even more comfortable, especially for large sewing projects … the fabric will glide smoothly over the rounded-shaped table.
