While cruising eBay last week, I found a Bernina 1005 that was listed as a Berninia. Maybe that is why it only had an hour to go on its auction , yet no one had even bid the beginning $50. I decided to bid $51 thinking a sniper would bid it up at the last minute. Wow, was I surprised when I won it.
It arrived. I was made more at ease when it was my old UPS man I have known for over 25 years. Steve is a great guy and was happy to deliver my new machine. I haven't had Steve as a delivery man for a few years. After we discussed old times, I unpacked my machine.
WOW! I purchased a machine that usually goes for much more on eBay than $50. I have been sewing and having a fun time.
This machine was manufactured in Switzerland in 1989. It is totally mechanical and came with all the original supplies. Several feet, the flatbed table, the owners manual, the cover, and a brochure.
This machine is so powerful and smooth it is hard to believe. The six-step buttonholer makes great buttonholes. I am using it to make the button holes on the shirt I am working on now.
I have a video on Youtube to describe it better.
Thanks for stopping.
