Many thanks to the nice people at BERNINA of America, who have featured me as one of their experts on their website WeAllSew.com since 2014.
For three years, BERNINA of America loaned me a B 560 and accessories to assist with my vintage garments reconstructions. (Readers got to know the machine as “Karl.”) During that time, I provided projects and articles to WeAllSew.com, and featured the machine on social media.
When the time came for Karl, my “Swiss Intern,” to return to the company, I decided I couldn’t live without him, so I purchased the equipment and became the proud owner of a BERNINA!
This family company has a legendary reputation for product quality and technical innovation, as well as a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. I’m very pleased to continue to partner with them on my reconstruction projects, and to remain one of their ambassadors.
In 2017, another machine joined the JetSetSewing team, when I was loaned, and then purchased, a B 215 to be my travel machine.
My thanks again to BERNINA of America for all of their support for fashion history research projects. I couldn’t do it without you!
And just FYI, though you may see links and product suggestions on Jet Set Sewing, other than the Bernina Collaboration, this blog does not have advertisers or affiliates. Any other promotional arrangement will be explained in the individual posts.
