Pros Well built and performs beautifully with many different fabric weights.
Cons To change the original stitch patterns, you have to connect to your computer.
Recommended it? Yes

I have had my Bernina Virtuosa 150 for about 5 years and it never gives me any problems. With annual servicing to keep it in top form, I can honestly say that it just keeps on giving and giving! Having said all that, I must admit that being the first Bernina Virtuosa line to come out with the CPS... Read full review »

Pros the cons outweigh the pros
Cons Breakage of monofilament and rayon threads. Oil ruined top sewing surface.
Recommended it? No

Bernina 150 is a specialty machine for quilters. The quilting stitch requires the use of monofilament thread. Frequent breakage of the thread is unacceptable. The machine has been serviced and stitched well for 3-4 hours then reverted to breaking. According to sales/service person Bernina states... Read full review »

When I was a little girl, I was a major tomboy. I climbed trees, played in the dirt and cut the hair off of all my dolls. In spite of my boyish ways, I really admired my grandma's neighbor.

Pros solid, excellent stitches and customizable, needle-down and pressure foot lifter features...
Cons a little whining noise when first sewing, finicky bobbin (just follow the manual)
Recommended it? Yes

I started quilting in 1996 on a vintage 1920s Singer portable. It only went forwards and backwards. I needed more.

I started saving for a Bernina the next year, and trust me, I had to save a long time.

I had decided that I wanted the hands-free presser foot lifter and the... Read full review »

Pros favorite feature is the knee lift
Cons none that I can think of
Recommended it? Yes

I am a quilter but I also like to do home deco sewing and clothing. This machine does it all. I traded in my Viking #1 machine for this Bernina. The stitches are wonderfully straight and accurate. I love the knee lift, great when piecing small pieces that need both hands. I bought this machine... Read full review »
