Bernette 7 series sewing and embroidery machines

We often get asked about the bernette brand. While it is becoming better known, it is still not widely known, so I wanted to give you a little more information but also give you a special offer on their new 7 series machines.

I'm going to start with a history lesson.....well 2 key portions of Bernina history

The year 1988: Hanspeter Ueltschi takes the reins

Hanspeter Ueltschi, great-grandson of the Bernina company founder, takes over the leadership of Fritz Gegauf AG in 1988 from his mother Odette, and from now on leads the company with considerable skill and flair. Under his leadership, BERNINA develops into an iconic brand among quilters in the United States

The year 1989: Odette becomes bernette

Odette Ueltschi-Gegauf continues to shape the company so effectively that the sewing machine line bernette is named after her: a combination of her first name and the brand name BERNINA.

So that is how bernette was born. While these machines are not Bernina machines they are made for Bernina under their design and specification briefs. As they are made in sewing machine factories that make a lot of machines for many other known brands, each brand can pick and choose designs and components to give them the machine both in deisgn and quality that suits their purpose.

The latest range the bernette 7 series mimics some of the features we ove on the Bernina 7 series. You will find a similar interface, similar size and similar features. The bernette series is a lower more attractive price for many people who can't afford a Bernina or want a second class machine. As these machines are sold by Bernina dealers you still have the great support network you get with the Bernina brand.

So if you have loads of ideas—but sadly, not a sewing machine that can keep up with your creativity? Then the new bernette models are just what you're looking for!

Embellish, embroider, shorten a pair of pants and much more—whatever you want to do, your bernette can handle everything with impressive reliability. This is no surprise because BERNINA continually monitors the quality of these smart machines.

Allow yourself to be inspired and discover how easily you can turn your imagination into unique clothes, accessories, home decorations, etc. You can now do this more easily than ever before, thanks to the many convenient features. Want to sew like a pro with a big fun factor and an attractive price thrown in? No problem with your bernette!
