Bernina 820 Looking for a New Home

For the past 6 years, I've been fostering Bernie, a Bernina 820 sewing machine.  He came to me gently used, and we bonded a lot over the past 5 years, creating memories as we collaborated on 130+ quilts.  But it is time to find Bernie a new studio to call his own...
Meet Bernie!
Hello!  I am Bernie, a 7.5 year-old Bernina 820 sewing machine that is looking to take up residence in a new studio.  My perfect day would start with some basic sewing and piecing, which would be finished in record time thanks to my 1,100 stitches/minute sewing speed and automatic thread cutter.  This would leave us with plenty of time to tackle some of those quilt tops you've been stashing away.  We'll add beautiful quilted texture as I come equipped with hundreds of decorative and utility stitches, a well-engineered walking foot and three different free-motion embroidery feet.  With 12" of throat space, I am up to the challenge of tackling those full and queen sized quilt tops you were going to send out for long arm quilting.  What?!?  You don't know how to free-motion quilt yet?  No worries!  Let me and my Bernina Stitch Regulator help ease you into free-motion quilting by automatically adjusting the stitching speed to you moving the quilt.
Accessories and Gadgets Galore!
I come fully loaded with all kinds of cool bells & whistles to help bring joy to our sewing sessions:  20+ different presser feet, extra large bobbins, a low-bobbin sensor/alarm, circular embroidery attachment, magnifying glasses and more!!  I also come equipped with my own protective bag, extra LED lighting and an optional customized sewing machine table that was made just for me!!
But wait!  There's More!!
I am up to date on my cleaning, care & maintenance, as I just visited the sewing machine spa in early January 2017.  I come equipped with a user manual and instructional dvd to help you take full potential of my many features, for many days of happy sewing and quilting!

    1. Thanks Mimi--it certainly had lots of bells and whistles that I didn't fully appreciate. Luckily it has a new owner where it will be well-enjoyed and create lots of fun new projects!
