Hi, I really have no idea which plastic piece your talking about but any part of this machine can be ordered from Bernina at a dealership whether its a plastic piece or not. Usually inexpensive.
Good luck to you.

Attachments for 140 activa


Do you mean a presser foot to sew rolled hem or shell hem edges?

If so, the Bernina website lists the accessories here:http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n25-i61-sEN.html

Bernina feet 68 and 69 are rolled hem/shell, just different widths. However, I think the feet for the Activa are the new 3 digit numbered feet? I know there is the old style and new style attachment system for Bernina feet, if you look at the presser feet you got with the machine, they will have a code on the front of the foot; buy any new feet with same code format.

As to where to buy, I always start with the manufacturer/distributor in my country first. So start with www.bernina.com, go to your country, then "contact us" page and give the local office a call. They should be able to confirm the exact foot code you need and sell it to you or direct you to a local dealer who can.

How do I make a button hole with my Bernina Activa 140?


If you go to http://www.bernina.com.au/webautor-data/888/0305295204_0303_a135-a145_EN.pdf you can download a manual for the Activa 145, I suspect that the instructions would be very similar for buttonholing.

I have inherited a Bernina Activa 140 and have the manual, have followed instructions to the letter but the thread keeps breaking, the bobbin is O.K. It sew for about 3 stitches and then the thread breaks


Check the manual to be sure the needle is inserted correctly.

Also - check the needle to be sure it is not bent and that there are no burrs or nicks on the throat plate.

Berninas hold their value and it is worth investing in the service fee to have the machine thoroughly gone over by a Bernina certified tech.

The bottom thread on my Bernina 140 jams


Try pulling more thread out before you begin the seam - about 6". If you can hold the threads while you take the first few stitches that helps too.

There is also a tension adjustment on teh bobbin. It's just a little screw. Turn it about 1/4 to 1/2 turn and try again. Adjust as needed a little at a time.
