Rated highly by sewing machine reviews, the Artista 730e has several sewing features that were reviewers especially liked:
BSR – the Bernina Stitch Regulator - This is actually a presser foot that allows you to do free motion quilting and ensures uniform stitch length, even at variable sewing speeds. The stitch regulator (the 730’s presser foot) can even sew zigzag stitches.
By the way, reviewers felt that changing the presser feet was easy on the Artista 730e and that there was a nice selection of presser feet.
The stitch regulator can be used in place of the stippling stitch feature, that is offered by sewing machines made by other manufacturers.
