Q & As


Bernette 15 Sewing Machine 3.5 5 2 2
Disappointed I am going to pop into JL today and seek the opinion of the staff about this machine. The needle keeps working it's way loose and inexplicable thread jams leave oily marks on my fabric. I thought it was perhaps just me, maybe I was doing something wrong, but I've taken this new machine with me to my sewing classes where my very accomplished instructor had the same problems and suggested I return it to the shop. I chose this machine because I wanted to upgrade from my trusty, but very basic toyota machine (15 years old and still going strong). Without blowing the budget I wanted a few more features such as a needle threader and automatic button hole function. This machine has all that and looks good but it needs to do the basics properly first! The cover is paper thin, just a dust cover really and you can't carry it by the handle with the cover on. Hopefully the excellent girls and guys in store will have me sewing happily by the close of business today…finger crossed! 09 July 2014
