How long have you had the machine? About 2 months
Is it a basic sewing machine, serger, or embroidery machine? Basic sewing machine
What are your favorite features? I love the automatic button hole program, the automatic darning program, the 40 different functional and decorative stitches, and the needle threader.
What are some of the unique features it has? The BERNINA 330 has a letter sewing feature that allows you to sew words and names into fabric. I love this feature and the possibilities are endless.
How well does it run? It runs very smooth. The machine handles all fabric weights and types equally well, even heavy fabrics several layers thick. It is also extremely quiet.
Has it ever broken or needed maintenance you couldn't do yourself? No, but I haven't had it for very long.
What are your least favorite features? The front-loading bobbin is a little cumbersome at times. Also, when securing a decorative stitch with the reverse stitch feature, it just reverses the stitch, which can make it look a little messy if it does not line up perfectly. Other machines perform a backstitch knot when using the reverse stitch on a decorative stitch program.
Would you recommend this machine to a friend? Absolutely
