You may check out local sewing machine shops or even a Bernina dealer (if there is one). There are many Berninas on eBay but verify that the machine has been serviced by a Bernina technician and is guaranteed to be in operating order. Also, shipping could be quite expensive, especially if you include insurance against shipping damage. Check if there are any for-sale-by-owner facilities near you, ie Craigslist in US. Also, are there any Bernina sewing groups in your area? That may be a good place to ask if someone has a machine for sale.

I have been given a Bernina funlock 007d and would like to be shown how to thread the machine, I live in Parklands Cape Town

Although not your model, the models do not change much. Just be sure to raise the presser foot when you thread the machine and thread each thread in the proper order (upper looper first, lower looper second with thread draped over the upper looper, then the needles).

Bernina 180E or Janome MC10000?

I have the Janome 10001 and I love it. I have thousands of designs and they are easily accessible on-line and I can download the designs onto my flash card quickly and the cards were relatively easy to find.
I have just purchased a 180E Bernina. I have heard it is a much better machine and Bernina does have a wonderful reputation and is supposed to be the best there is. I have found that the dealers near London Ontario are not customer service oriented. I attended a store and am still waiting for someone to phone me back with information. I did email Bernina on-line and they have been exceptionally helpful and willing to offer suggestions, and information and solutions. The dealer just north of London was not even interested in helping me at all and basically blew me off. I think once you find a reliable dealer you are ok. If you get either of these machines, email me and I can help you with whatever you need to get up and running. (
I am currently moving so have not got the Bernina set up right now. ONce I get it going and use it for a while I can give you a better idea of which one is better. I might just keep both but not sure.
Good luck!

Machine not stitching

In my town, when you buy a new Bernina, you get a free series of classes to learn how to use it. Call your store and see if they have a "Get to know your Bernina" class for your machine.
