The Bernina S540 is the entry machine in the Bernina 5 Series, it has a large variety of stitch patterns and 5 sewing alphabets built in to the machine.

There are a few main differences between the S540 and the Bernina 4 Series machines. Not only does it have a lot more stitches, it runs at a higher speed of 1000 stitches per minute, and offers a wider space to the right of the needle for larger projects.

This Machine Is Embroidery Compatible –  You Have The Option To Add the Embroidery Unit as an Optional Extra at any time
