Hint of the Month
Buy to your Budget – While Keeping in Mind: “Buy to Your Budget” seems so obvious. As we do so, some matters of discussion/investigation are worth considering:
  • Any BERNINA can, from a pure sewing point of view, often meet all one’s needs and in many cases “be more sewing machine” than one ever dreamed of. What, then, makes a particular BERNINA “more of a machine” than other BERNINAs?

    Some features, worthy of a discussion as one “Buys to One’s Budget”. (If you don’t know what the following are: Ask to be shown and “try before you buy”! These are just SOME suggestions):

    • Needle up and down
    • Start-Stop Sewing switch
    • Machine sewing “Throat” space
    • Walking foot supported?
    • Ability to “Control” stitch width
    • Thread cutter
    • Securing one’s stitches

    Of course, Embroidery adds, immediately, to the “Buy to your Budget” discussion. We can discuss that in another Hint of the Month.

    If you have any comments or otherwise, please: send mail to: Hintofthemonth at Bernina World of Sewing dot com
    send mail to: HintoftheMonth at Bernina World of Sewing dot com

Press Release April 1, 2015

Comment from Sonja (of our staff): I had a chance this week to sew selected decorative stitches on both the 740 and the 770QE. I used the BERNINA 20D foot and both machines sewed perfectly.

I also had a look at the 7-Series Manuals. They are wonderful and, in addition to their beauty/quality, they are very user friendly.

In addition to a beautiful stitch - perhaps you would like to get started in embroidery?
Stop by and try.

From Sonja: I had the opportunity to "play" with the brand new Chicago 7. I was amazed how many embroidery designs there were pre-loaded. The embroidery was very easy to learn and to use. It appears to be a great way for us to get started with embroidery and gives those who thought embroidery sewing machines were out of their reach a real way to discover how embroidery can be fun and worthwhile!

A Few Comments From Sonja of Bernina World of Sewing
After First Use of BERNINA 7 Series

The first time I saw the 780 I fell in love with the machine! I have not found one thing, so far, that "concerns" / bothers me.

The new design is elegant while also having a touch of "streamlining".

So far, I have had a chance to work/"play" with the 780 and the 710.

  • The stitch selection on both is a straight-forward matter. The touch screen on both machines makes it easy to become familiar with the stitch folders.

  • On the 710 I tried some of the new quilting stitches. I was impressed how the multi-directional stitch's sewing line was easily maintained.- even with the 9mm stitch blade. I definitely want to use some of the stitches with a wing needle; especially, stitch 1352 seems to have potential.

  • For the 780, if I have multiple embroidery designs in the screen / hoop, I can see the order that I have inserted the different designs (by way of "table tabs" - via the Retrieve Function Icon support of the 780). I was working with a customer the other day and with less than five minute's experience on the machine she had a very beautiful multi-design finished piece ready to go! It was very impressive to the customer and to me.

Are you looking for a holiday gift - or, just something for yourself?

A Few Comments From Sonja of Bernina World of Sewing
After First Use of BERNINA 5 Series

  • The control panel is “next generation” and takes some getting used to. It you are a “text-er” and part of the networking generation it will come easily!
  • Embroidery on the 580 is touch-screen; to me, it is kind of like a “baby 830” operating-wise.
  • Many embroidery patterns are already loaded onto the 580.
  • I leapt right in to using one of these patterns. Multiplied, Mirror Image and Reduce 50%. All were easy to do and stitched out perfectly!

If you have time, we would love to show you the BERNINA 5 Series!


BERNINA 3 Series

Stop By And Give Us A Look - and SEW using it.



Some Comments From Bernina Staff - After Working With the 3 Series for a Few Months

The next time that you visit our store, we would like to invite you to get to know the 3 Series machine if you have not already done so.

The machine is truly inspiring and invites us to create.

BERNINA took the time to put together a reasonable-priced sewing machine with some extra – and, valuable – features

We can highly recommend that you take the time to sew some with the 3 Series machines.

As we had mentioned in our previous post:

  • The physical design of the 3 Series is very attractive; classy and contemporary.
  • Bright screen; easy reading!
  • Background is black and the writing is white. Very comfortable to read.
  • Start and Stop button, with Speed Control
  • Needle Up and Down
  • Separate motor for bobbin-winding.
  • One-step buttonhole.
  • Handle (at the top of the machine) has an opening for the Stitch Card. Nice!
  • The new tray is very easily attached. Nice glide!
  • All 3 Series machines have 30 memory slots.

Most of all, the 3 Series machines have a beautiful stitch and they sew quietly and the sewing is “smooth”.

The 3 Series comes with clip-on feet that are very easily exchangeable. In addition, the specialty feet that BERNINA makes may be used on this machine. This is a big advantage for those sewers who invest in specific feet for special tasks; for example: Feet for piping, rufflers, or quilting feet.

Don’t hesitate to ask any of us at the store to show you the 3 Series!

Gatherings

Bernina World of Sewing - Gatherings 2016

Our 2016 Morning Gathering is involved with the Gemstone pattern from Wing and a Prayer Design and the Evening Gathering involves projects that are based upon either: The Gemstone pattern from Wing and a Prayer Design or Blooming Nine Patch inspired by the book: Tradition With A Twist Book By Blanche Young & Dalene Young Stone.

We look forward to seeing all your beautiful work.

Note: You MUST be pre-registered to participate in the monthly Gatherings. Just "Show-Ups" the day/evening of the Gathering will not be allowed - we simply do not have room for such in the classroom. Sorry!

Those who signed up and are participating in the Gatherings have been contacted via eMail. For those participating and have been contacted, the next session for the 2016 Morning Gathering for Gemstone will held: Tuesday, July 19 2016 10:00am at the store and the 2016 Evening Gathering for Gemstone or Blooming Nine Patch will held: Monday, July 11 2016 5:00pm at the store . Again: Please do NOT show up for the Gathering if you have not been contacted (there, simply, is not sufficient space for "walk-in" participants). Sorry!
Note: Although the Evening Gathering has been going on for a few sessions, there is a spot remaining for the Evening Gathering. If the Evening Gathering is of interest to you, please: send mail to: Webmaster for Bernina World of Sewing and I will get your request to the store.

Reminders:
  • The Gathering participants purchased, from our store, the pattern and/or book offered as part of a Gathering and fabric used during the Gatherings.

  • Gathering participants should have experience in sewing and in making quilts.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class . Each participant is expected to be able to manage his/her own project.

  • The store will not be able to arrange and set-up class machines for use during the Gatherings. Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants, due to classroom class size and machine space limitations will not be accommodated. Sorry!

  • If a Gathering participant decides to "drop out" of the 2016 Gatherings, it would be appreciated if that were known by the store; there may a wait-list and, if a Gathering slot opens - Persons on the wait-list will be notified of such.

Our May-thru-August-2015 Gathering project was involved with three options of patterns for the Gathering participant.

Our January-thru-April-2015 Gathering project was Inspired by Downton Abbey Fabric from andover Fabrics
And by the book: Take 5 Fat Quarters, written By Kathy Brown, Published by Martingale.

We used, primarily, the andover Downton Abbey fabrics that arrived in November, 2014,
with some of the attendees using additional andover Downton Abbey fabrics that arrived as early-2015 moved along.

Each of the Gathering's quilts were selected with two objectives firmly in mind:
1) Beautiful pieces and
2) Quilts that you might view as "once in a lifetime" happenings; Not necessarily quilts you would make on a regular basis.
