Question about Bernina Artista 180
Have an old bernina machine,know nothing about,was first wife's grandmothers.both deceased.
Older machines, the model number is found on the throat of the machine and sometimes stamped on the cover over the motor. You can also give me the serial number stamped on the machine and I can look it up for you. I am a certified Bernina/Brother dealer and technician.
Perhaps look at Ebay, you may get lucky before your eyes become crossed looking at the many many Bernina models out there.

If it's a Bernina from a deceased family member, it is probably a good model to have. The old Berninas, if well taken care of, are much sought after machines. I have a few myself, and they are awesome...totally mechanical. When cleaned and oiled regularly, they are workhorses.

Re older BERNINA usually on the front or inside the vertical column on right is the model number
the age can be determined by the serial number
the early models started with the first two numbers indicating the year of manufacture. Eg 58 indicated made in 1958
or 65 -1965
then they changed to a numbering system
if it began with a 1. It was made in 70's second number the yr
eg 12 -1972; 13-1973, 17- 1977
the 2= 1980's and lime above 22=1982. 26= 1986
then 3= 1990's. As above
hope this helps contact me for more info if needed
