The BERNINA 350PE has been a best-seller for us since we got the dealership. Its compact size is perfect for newer sewers/quilters or those who want a machine for classes and retreats.
But don’t let its smaller stature fool you .. this machine is packed with awesome features. Including 115 stitches, automatic buttonhole, free-arm sewing platform, knee-lift system, needle stop up/down plus it comes with the BERNINA Walking Foot (a $200 value) that is essential when working with quilts and knits.
This is the machine that mom and I sewed on at home for the first couple of years after we got the dealership. It did everything we needed it to do. We made clothes, bags, and quilts and worked so perfectly. The hook system in this machine is about as close to perfection as you can get. You will almost NEVER have to touch your tension dial .. whatever fabric you’re working with, whatever thread you’re using .. it just sews beautifully.
Want to sew on leather? Yep, this machine can handle it. Making bags with tons of interfacing and super thick seams? Yep, can handle that too. Making heirloom dresses from fine lawn? Easy-peasy with this machine.
If you have never owned a BERNINA before and are looking to dip your toes in the BERNINA pool, this is a great machine to start with … and I do mean start with. Once you become part of the family, you may eventually want to upgrade to be able to embroider, work with larger quilts, or have wider stitches but you will want to hold on to this machine. Perfect for classes, traveling, or retreats or to let children/grandchildren learn to sew on.
If you’re in the Lafayette, Louisiana area you must come stop by Lola Pink and let us introduce you to this machine .. otherwise, stop by your local BERNINA dealer and tell them we sent you 😉
Now through the 4th of July, 2016 we’re offering this machine at a fantastic price!
