Sewing Machine FAQs

For beginners, we recommend the bernette line. If you’re looking for a higher quality beginner machine, a good starting place is the BERNINA-3 series base models.

The throat space is the distance from the needle to the right of the machine. Another common way to describe this is the length of free arm to the right of the needle. Throat space measurements are there to tell you how much space you’ll have for your hand and for the project you’re sewing. 

Each BERNINA series has a different throat space. 

  • 3 series–6.3”
  • 4 series–7”
  • 5 series–8.5”
  • 7 series–10” 
  • 8 series–12”

What is the warranty on BERNINA machines?

From the date you purchased the product: 

  • Mechanical parts–20 years 
  • Electrical parts (wiring, cable, sensors)–2 years
  • Printed circuit boards–5 years

No, in fact, they are easy to navigate! Of course, as with any new machine or equipment, there may be a bit of a learning curve, but we’ll think you’ll find BERNINA machines to be intuitive. In fact, if you operate a smartphone, you’ve already learned a more complicated machine. 

All BERNINA models have touchscreens, except the 3 series. When you change anything on your machine, your screen will notify you about what changed. And, if you ever get lost, you can always turn your machine off and back on to reset it.  

Yes, you can. In fact, many of BERNINA’s machines have a stitch regulator. This handy gadget makes your stitches perfectly consistent.

The 4 series up to the 590 models are built so a BSR can be added to the machine. Most models from the 590 on up have a BSR included as a standard accessory.
