I am writing to tell you all about my Bernina 1090 sewing machine. I sew for other people, mostly T-shirt quilts and needlework into pillows and this machine works wonders. I sew every day and have not had any problems with this machine, the Bernina 1090. Turn it on and away I go. It comes with several feet and you can buy just about any other feet you might need. When I sew the quilt tops, my 1/4 inch foot helps make all my seams the same size. When I make the pillows, the cording foot helps me add that really professional touch. I also do some mending for people and every stitch I need is built right into this machine, the Bernina 1090. At Christmas time, my Bernina 1090 helps me made a ton of really great gifts for just about every member of my family. I would highly reccomend this machine to beginning sewers as well as the person that has been sewing for many years. It is a work horse machine, my Bernina 1090.
