    I have a bernina ( was gifted to me by my cousins husband when she passed away) I need needles, do I need to buy bernina or can I get any brand?
    The nearest Bernina dealer is 30 miles away and I dont want to drive on the backroads ( its out in the country,Mennonite area) to the shop in the snow.

    I use Schmetz in all my Bernins (3) and they work just fine. You can order online or if there is a JoAnn's and Hancock's try to get them when they have their 50% Notions wall sale.

    My dealer also told me to only use Schmetz needles and to never ever ever use singer needles as they can damage the bobbin race which is a very expensive part to replace. You can pick up Schmetz needles just about everywhere. I have even seen them at JoAnnes and Walmart!

    That's what I do, too, for both my Bernina and my Babylock.

    I used to use Schmetz which worked perfectly in my Bernina 1030.
    I now use tintanium (no spellcheck here) from Superior Threads because they are very long-lasting 1+years
