    BERNINA 215 with built-in needle threader
    Right from the start, the BERNINA 215 lets you enjoy the optimum convenience of a Swiss precision sewing machine that’s revealed particularly in the details: for instance, its built-in needle threader which lets you rethread the machine when changing spools in the blink of an eye. This saves time and is a genuine help. The BERNINA 215 proves that even state-of-the-art sewing-machine technology needn’t be complicated, and leaves nothing to be desired as an easy-to-operate sewing machine. Ideal for beginners or occasional sewers!

    Needle stop up/down for simple, safe sewing
    At the touch of a button, the BERNINA 215 lets you set your needle to stop up or down in the fabric. What’s more, the sewing speed of the 215 can be reduced to half-tempo. You always maintain control over the sewing speed and the position of the needle when the sewing process is stopped. Since sewing speed can be adjusted to your personal abilities, even beginners can expect high-quality results.

    Your desired stitch at the touch of a button
    The BERNINA 215 offers you a range of the most commonly used practical stitches which are simply set at the touch of a button. Large, clear icons next to the direct-selection keys display the stitch in question, so that you can change the stitch at the press of a button. Thanks to this simple direct stitch selection, the BERNINA 215 is a uniquely user-friendly machine – a combination of versatility and simple handling that will give you years of sewing enjoyment. All the more so, as the BERNINA 215 is a cinch to upgrade with additional special accessories, allowing its potential applications to grow along with your own skills and expectations.
