Top of the line sewing machine


My regular **sewing** **machine** is a **Bernina** Activa 220. I love it. It's very basic and doesn't have a bunch of embroidery crap on it. I like that. I wanted a no frills **machine**. The quality of my **sewing** has improved greatly since I purchased my **machine**. It comes with a foot that allows you to edge stitch perfectly at any width. You also have the option of choosing whether you want the **machine** to stop with the needle up or down, so you don't have to reach over and turn the wheel every time you want to put the needle in the right position. I haven't had any tension problems with it at all. You might get a skipped stitch every now and then unless you buy higher quality thread such as Metrosene or Gutterman. I have to say that my favorite thing about this **machine** is the automatic buttonholer. It's awesome. The buttonholes look 100% professional. This machine is electric run so it hums ever so quietly. Definitly reccomend this to anyone!

This is the best sewing machine I have ever used


When my husband told me to do the research to find the sewing machine that would be best for me, I read reveiw after review after review. I knew I wanted a sewing machine like my moms- and OLD Kenmore that keeps going and going- and not like the few cheapos I had in high school and college. Bernina seemed the way to go, so I waited for a good sale and bit the bullet. It has been worth every penny. This machine will last me for the rest of my sewing career for anything I want to do with it. I was very skeptical about buying a computerized machine, but this one has won me over. It has about 50 embroidery stiches, it does buttonholes, and I actually love all the little computerized tidbits... stitch length and width, and needle position. It even lets me decide whether I want to end my sewing with the needle up or down! My Bernina is going to be making curtains, slipcovers, pillowcases, baby clothes, ME clothes, and who knows what else?!
