Is the Bernina 1230 a low shank or high shank machine?


BEWARE! Bernina machines take a special Bernina-only foot, and even the older Bernina mechanical feet will not fit the newer Berninas, and vice versa.

For the most part, your 1260 uses the old style presser foot--BUT be sure to check as there are some old style that will NOT work on your machine. (Be sure to CONFIRM whether it will work on your machine as I believe the 1260 has some specifics that will not take all old style.) Red marked presser feet are only new style (ie computerized machines). The difference is in how the presser foot is designed at the top where it attaches to the machine. Your Bernina dealer generally carries both the old and new style. BEFORE you buy, be sure to ask whether you are getting the right foot for the 1260!

Look at the top of these presser feet so you can recognize what you need. You are probably safe buying the presser feet that have the 2 pegs at the top (if it has solid peg across the top, it may not work):

You can use snap-on feet BUT you still need a Bernina Adapter in order to do so.

Can I add a BSR to a Bernina 1260?


Not really. The Bernina BSR units need to be attached electronically to the machine to activate the "electronic eye." Your 1260 is an earlier mechanical-electronic machine that does not have that electronic-attachment capability, ie there is no where to plug a BSR unit into your machine. However, with practice (both with pencil on paper and then transferring that muscle memory to the machine), you should be able to learn to free motion quilt on your 1260. It just takes practice and patience.

How do I change the light bulb on my Bernina 1530?


You might check out some of the older Bernina manuals to get an idea of how it may work in your machine. The 1260 is the closest manual available. Looks like your machine takes the same push-in bulb. So, you would push up on the bulb and twist. Then you would install the replacement the same way. Sometimes, using tight fitting medical gloves helps grip the bulb in order to twist.

BTW--I have older Berninas and upgraded their bulbs to LED.

How do I make a new buttonhole on my 1260? B


Hi Karen,
Sew two parallel lines of overlock stitches very close together. Then see overlock stitches accros the ends of the first lot of stitches to close them off. Finally, carefully cut the fabric between the first set of stitches. Try this out several times on some scrap fabric. You'll need to get the spacings sorted out.

How do I Replace light bulb in bernina 1010


Theres a gray flexible cap about 1.5" long and .75" in diameter that comes with the machine. It is used as a tool to screw and unscrew the bulb. Weirdly I have had my machine since I bought it new in about 1987 and have never replaced the bulb. And I do use it, at times heavily.

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


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.
