Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
Everything looks right -- I have rethreaded the machine and rewound the bobbin several times and changed the needle. I took it apart and cleaned an oiled it, but still the top thread will not pick up the bobbin thread.
My machine is a Bernina 1260 -- not listed in the product list.
It looks right but its not. Try looking on the internet for threading instructions. The bobbin winds in two directions, I have never saw a Bernina but I have 2 new machines and the thread goes in and then threads back to the left. Its hard to describe. But if the bobbin isn't right it will not pick up the thread. Write to Bernina for instructions. There are websites that have the directions for free.
