Expert Review

If you want a fully automatic sewing machine and price is no object, then the Bernina 880 Quilting and Embroidery Sewing Machine can't be beat. This machine is not for beginners, but once it is set up correctly, all you need to do is push a button and the machine will do the rest.

This sewing machine is completely automatic in all functions and it will automatically make the foot pedal move up and down, just as if you were pushing on it. It will automatically raise and lower the feed dogs for the embroidery stitches, thread needles at the touch of a button, and it will automatically cut the thread when the stitching is complete.

It also features a stitch and shape designer, a color wheel, 30 LED lights for maximum table illumination, a computer screen that maps out stitches, and an internal memory so it never forgets a stitch. Additionally, there’s a computerized creative consultant to help you select the right stitch for the job at hand, and it even comes with an alarm clock.

Except for a very few hardcore sewers, this machine is a serious overkill in spades. But if you can pony up the money, you won't have more fun watching the stitches be created right before your eyes, as you sit back and sip on some chamomile tea. Once properly set up his is the simplest and easiest machine to use, but the price is so exorbitant, that you could nearly buy a new car. However it comes covered by a 25 year warranty and a 5 year warranty on the onboard computer.
