BERNINA Firmware Updates



From time to time, BERNINA releases firmware updates that improve the features of the machine.

We recommend that you always keep your machine up to date with the newest firmware.

Bring in your machine to either the Bernina Mossel Bay or Bernina George Branch and we will gladly update your Firmware for FREE!

Updates now available!

For the following Models: 
  • Bernette b79, 77 and 70
  • Bernina 535, 500 and 590

What happens if I don’t update my firmware?

Firmware is made up of programs written by software developers to make hardware devices tick.

If the firmware is absent, this results in most electronic devices will be unable to function.

They simply would not be able to do anything.


To update your firmware for  free simply give us a call or WatsApp us to let us know you want to update and we will gladly assist!
