The Bernina 215 is the Bernina entry level machine and is ideally suited to either a beginner who wants the outstanding Bernina quality or a more experienced sewer looking for a lightweight second machine.
Key features are focused around simplifying complex and time-consuming tasks:
Built-in needle threader.
Threading needles can be difficult and time-consuming, especially when your eyes start to fade! Changing spools will never be the same again with this feature.
Needle stop up/down
Variable sewing speed is a feature that's useful for everyone, especially beginners. Combine this with the ability to control the position of the needle when sewing stops and high-quality results are guaranteed (almost!)
On some machines, figuring out how to select your stitch can be rather overwhelming. The Bernina 215 buttons are clearly labelled and the 11 stitches available will suit all but the most complex and advanced sewing.
