I have a Bernina 1630+. Go to your main screen where you select straight stitch. Up in the top right side there will be a line of little rectangles all in a line.
Use your scroll bar to select any of these other rectangles. This should move your needle to the left or right in small increments. Usually one setting in from the right is about 1/4" for quilting. When you turn your machine off everything resets to a straight needle position in the middle again.
Hope this helps.

Not sure, but if this is the one with the track ball, try pushing in on it to activate needle position.

I have a Bernina Virtuosa so not the same machine - but this may help. There is an icon on the front of the machine - it is a needlepoint pointing at a dot in an oval - there are arrow buttons on either side. These move the needle left or right of center and it shows on LED screen. I checked mine just now and if you turn machine off and on it resets to center automatically. Hope this helps - Happy Sewing!!

SOURCE: Bernina 1630 needle will not move go side to side.

If you can pull the needle bar down manually and it springs back up, the basting clutch is stuck. By someone who knows how, it's a very easy fix. I would guide you here, but I don't know how to explain it. Plus, you have to be very careful not to damage the spring loaded clutch.

SOURCE: I can't remember how to make the needle position on my 1630 Bernina stay either to the left or right so that I can insert a zipper with my zipper foot. Can you help?

HI Evelyn,
sometimes its just the little things that stop your sewing project; so annoying isnt' it.

According to the manual I've found, this stitch width inner knob is turned to move the needle position. The outter part controls the zig zag width, so just move the inner knob to move the needle.

Hope that makes sense to you. Good luck finishing your project.

SOURCE: How do I change the needle position

Depends on the machine, and if the needle position can be changed. If it can't, you probably want something like this: <http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/j-200342003.php?gclid=CP7S5r-khL4CFc5ffgod9GUAlg> The green button thing on the back is a setscrew that lets you move the foot relative to the needle, rather than the needle relative to the foot.

I can't get the needle to move laterally. Trying to put the zipper presser foot in


Even though you push the needle positioning button, the needle does not move right or left?

Bring it in for service.

Bernina 930 change needle position


Look at the knob which creates the zig-zag stitch (1-4) at the top right of your 930. In the center of that is a silver knob that rotates right and left. That silver switch moves the needle position right and left.
