The Bernette 38 is a fantasitic all rounder sewing machine, offering many wonderful features at an afordable price. Anyone from the home repair mender, to the hobbiest will love the ease of use functions and the variety of stitches.
Two key features that stand out are the adjustable foot pressure and the scissor cut function. Adjustable foot presser is how hard the presser foot is pushing down onto the fabric to help grip and pull while sewing. Sometimes harder to sew fabrics such as stretch, need this setting to be loosened off to prevent the machine from stretching and making the fabric wavey as you sew.
The scissor function is so quick and simple. No longer having to pull the fabric out to the side to trim. With the touch of a button, both threads are pulled under the needle plate and cut. What a great way to save thread and have a tider looking finish!
