Question about Sewing Machines
I'm thinking about purchasing the Bernette 65 sewing machine, but after reading some reviews on it, i'm thinking twice. Have you had many complaints or problems with this model. This is my first machine, and I'm wondering if it's a reliable starter. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
As a Bernina tech I may be a bit biased on this but I can say this... If you decide on this machine be sure you get it from a dealership with an on-site technician. Any can be an Authorized dealer but not many have a Certified technician. Not to say that you will need one but if it does get an issue in can be taken care of promptly. Also Bernina dealerships are required to have a class for you on their machines. I have worked for a Bernina dealership for the past 5 years and have not had a Bernette come in for a repair. Of the reviews I've read the complaints are of the tension which seems most likely a user default such as not keeping it clean after use, using cheap thread, not understanding how to adjust it for different fabrics, the right type of needle, etc.
I like the 1 step buttonholer and the threader. I wish the lighting was better.
If your going to spend less than 200.00 on a new machine you could do much worse. If you decide to not do the Bernette consider the Janome line next. (with an on-site tech)
