12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS: BERNETTEby Blog Editor, Selvedge
The Selvedge 12 Days of Christmas 2021 competitions are open! From 1 – 12 December you can enter to win each and every one of our 12 prizes by visiting our competition page. Every day while entries are open we will look at each prize in more detail. Today it’s the Bernette 37 sewing machine, from Bernette, part of the BERNINA Group.
The stylish Swiss-designed Bernette 37 is a compact computerised model with simple operation and robust construction. It has many functions, such as the practical start/stop function that allows you to sew without using the foot pedal. You can also use the needle stop up/down function to decide whether the needle should stop in the fabric or up above it. This is a particular advantage when you want to sew corners and turn the fabric around the needle. With the Bernette 37 you can also adjust the sewing speed to suit your individual requirements and the type of material, and the bright LED light helps ensure that your work surface is always well lit. 5 presser feet are included with the machine.
With 50 different stitches, consisting of 17 utility and stretch stitches, two darning stitches and 19 decorative stitches, five buttonholes and seven quilting stitches, you will be well equipped to handle any sewing project. The 2-step presser foot enables the machine to master even thick layers of fabric, ideal for quilting projects and sewing outerwear. Easy to operate via the LCD display, the screen shows the current stitch, stitch length and width. These individual settings can be changed even while you are sewing. Many people are increasingly looking for sewing machines that can be used without foot control. The start/ stop function is especially useful if you want to sew longer sections of fabric or if you'd like to use a standing desk while you work.
Launched In 1989, Bernette is an independent brand within the BERNINA Group and the Bernette range includes sewing, embroidery and overlocker machines as well as accessories.
We are delighted to have one Bernette 37 machine to give away.
