About 2 years ago I bought a Bernina 800DL from the lovely people at Jaycotts.co.uk.
It worked great for a while and then I had trouble keeping it threaded, I moved house twice and got divorced in between and went back to using the noisy old Janome becuase it was just too hard to work out what was up with the Bernina.
This last week I went of on holiday with extended family, and Jaycott's was about half way on the journey, so the Bernina got to take a little holiday to North Wales, and having prewarned Noel I was coming I stopped in on the way back today and explained the problem I had with it.
It turns out the problems were all down to operator error and the Bernina was fine, despite all the mean things I've been saying about it.
Noel showed me carefully how to thread it and found me some paper so I could write some notes to remember his tips. He then demo'd it doing a perfect stitch, left the thread in for me and sent me on my way.
So I would like to say a huge thank you to Noel at Jaycotts, for sorting out the problem user, and 800DL, I take it all back, and have some great sewing planned for you for this autumn/winter.
I never did finish my Olympics sewing, and keep banging my legs on the living room furniture arrangement, so the machines are all going back into a reorganised sewing room, so the armchair can get out of the doorway.
