Bernina 930 Sewing Machine saved from the Tip!

A photo of a Bernina 930 sewing machine in our workshop.
This Bernina 930 Sewing Machine was saved from the Tip! The 930, was one of the best sewing machines ever made and the girl who brought this Bernina 930 in for repair had found it lying on a local rubbish tip.
New Bernina sewing machines aren’t exactly cheap but they are top quality sewing machines. Every week we receive phone calls from people all over the country chasing a used Bernina. Unfortunately, demand for used Bernina sewing machines far outweighs supply. Although, we do have a small trickle going through the workshop. If you have got your heart set on a used Bernina, phone us and ask for Steve Bamber. No guarantees, but you might just be one of the lucky ones.

Anyway, back to this Bernina 930. In this case the machine required a full service and the transformer had burnt out. It’s quite a common fault on these old Bernina 930’s, but we do a lot of Bernina repairs and we had the parts in stock.
We gave this 930 a full service and a new transformer, as well as a few other electrical components. Afterwards, it ran a smooth as silk and will last for a very long time.
At tale to gladden the heart, or make you green with envy…
