Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine

Rating: 2 out of 5
  • Currently 2.0/5.0

The Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine is a slightly more modern, technologically advanced and computerized machine that is intended for people who are just starting out. It's a very high quality machine that does however, lack quite a few features, some of them being actually quite so crucial and making sewing much more convenient for you. If you plan on creating and making simpler projects that are appropriate for students and people just entering sewing, this is a good machine for you.

If you have a lot of heavy-duty clothing projects, and intend on creating a great deal of your own clothing and apparel, you'll definitely be missing out on not having a one-step buttonhole feature with the Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine. While you are able to create quality, sufficient buttonholes with the Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine, it is quite complicated and has multiple steps, which can be irritating when compared with other models. People who quilt, deal with home decorating or create crafts, may actually like this machine because they do not require the extra features or things that may have been included on other machines.

This is also a good machine for people who practice quilting, as there are 5 stitches that are specifically for quilting, along with one basic alphabet style for labeling your creations. With the Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine, changing stitches is quite quick, since the Bernina has a stitch-to-stitch Dial-A-Stitch feature, as well as temporary stitch memory, which is also very helpful and allows you to always return to particular stitches within one single sewing session.
With the Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine stitch length and width are also adjustable, with a special push button control. There's also an up and down feature, another bonus for quilters.

The Bernina Activa 220 computerized sewing machine isn't the best machine out there, but might be perfect for quilters.
