The Write Up From Bernina:
The BERNINA 330 is not just an innovative companion for beginning sewers, but a perfectly designed one. Its modern LCD display, bright LED sewing light and automatic buttonhole function will knock your socks off. Last but not least, it cuts a fine figure as a beginner’s machine.
What Does That Mean to You as a User?
Bernina’s DC motor means it can sew through thicker materials, while the smaller 5mm feed means smoother sewing on finer fabrics more prone to gathering and puckering, both making this machine is an excellent option for dressmakers. Precision is the main focus of the 380, and you’ll find small and fiddly projects especially easy.
Our Favourite Feature?
The adjustable needle position means that you can sew exactly where you need to without having to change the width of the stitch – for example, you can sew a zig-zag stitch but not be restricted to sewing only in the centre of the foot.
Something That It’s Missing?
The number of stitch patterns on the 330 is a little low, keeping the price down. If you love dress-making and are looking for more variety in decorative stitches, take a look at the Bernina 380.
Summing Up the 330 in 1 Sentence:
The 330 is a good all-rounder, but its precise stitch and smooth 900 stitch speed makes it a great dress-makers machine.
