  1. I’m afraid I would beg to differ with your report regarding the Bernette 20 made by Bernina. These machines are cheaply made and are, quite honestly, not worth paying for. I have sewn for nearly 50 years and this machine is simply the worst. It has been back to the repair shop at least three times in the two years I’ve had it and apparently there is ‘nothing wrong with it’. I guess nothing wrong means that it will suddenly start stitching backwards….it means the thread won’t stay in the take up lever… means the thread tension cannot be changed. I could go on (and could write a book with the issues this thing has had). Needless to say Bernina, and Bernette in particular, is manufacturing machines of questionable quality.
