If you are like me, you’ve probably been dreaming or drooling over a Bernina sewing machine for a while now. With Bernina at the Maker Faire in Austin, I wanted to find out more about these fantastic sewing machines and why they are considered to be the gold standard. I got a chance to get a little demo from a Bernina sewer, Erin Bosik, who shows us the ins-and-outs and key features of Berninas, perfect for sewers of any level!
Head on over to the Bernina web site to find out more about their sewing machines and find out which model is right for you. – Link.

And here it is! After 3 years of deciding, I finally decided on which Bernina to get. I bought the Bernina Activa 230 Patchwork Edition. It’s perfect for the kinds of projects I really want to do more of — sewing clothes and lots of quilting. It does sew like butter which just makes you want to sew even more. I bought it at an authorized Bernina dealer in San Francisco. If you are nearby, you should definitely go there. California Sewing & Vacuum (5025 Geary St. 415-751-4880). Ask for Celie, she’s got amazing sewing tips and you get a free one-on-one lesson on how to use your specific machine once you purchase it. Happy sewing!

    Berninas are great. I’ve had mine for 5 years and it sews like a dream. This store on Geary St is a whole different story. They have horrible customer service, charge random amounts to fix your machine each time and never ask before ripping out parts and replacing it with super expensive replacements. I’d totally buy a Bernina but definately not at this place.

    Check out
    A relatively new forum with a ton of fellow Bernina lovers with all levels of expertise.

    Would you think these Berninas would be strong enough to – let’s say – sew a jeans trouser?

  5. Bernina Sewing Machines – CRAFT Video Podcast Rebecca Stern says:

    Certainly! Just make sure to use a heavier-duty needle, as they’re more likely to break when sewing heavy fabrics.

    Hi Deb,
    Most definitely. I’ve hemmed my denim jeans with it. It works perfectly.
