We get asked all the time why we chose BERNINA. The answer is easy .. it’s the best!
We got our first BERNINA almost 10 years ago right after we started making things and selling them on Etsy. Mom always wanted to get a BERNINA and knew they were the best but it wasn’t until we really got into sewing things that we decided if we were going to do this, we needed to do it right.
After getting the BERNINA, mom kept it at her house and I bought a rather pricey Singer .. it’s the brand she had prior although hers was a much older one. We didn’t know at the time that they just don’t make Singer machines like they used to.
We got to sewing and making samples and mom’s items always turned out better than mine. My seams weren’t straight … my tension was funky … the stitches just looked bad. I just assumed that it was because I was a newer sewer and it was frustrating!
She finally let me take the BERNINA home one weekend and everything changed. Overnight my seams were straight .. I didn’t have to fight the tension .. the dress turned out so pretty! When I showed people they couldn’t believe that I had sewn it and I was very proud. I couldn’t believe what a difference a good machine made!
Thankfully this was right around the time that we got the BERNINA dealership and I didn’t have to wait long to get a BERNINA of my very own. Now I can’t imagine ever having a machine that wasn’t a BERNINA!
My first BERNINA was an Artista 430 that I had to share with mom. My first BERNINA that was mine, all mine, was a 350 Special Edition.
