    Hello, I am looking for someone that knows how to repair Bernina sewing machines. I have had one man to look at it and he told me my machine was old and worn our. I bought it in 1985 and I have used it. I called the dealer (who is retired) that I purchased the machine from and she suggested that I try to locate someone in the Houston, Texas area who repairs them. Can any one out there help me. I have several quilts that my Mother, Grandmother and 2 Aunts pieced together and I want to get them done for the grand children.

    They have a section marked locare a dealer , I would try there first. If not contact them directly and ask where you might get it fixed . Good Luck

    Glenda do you happen to know what's wrong with it?

    Do a google search on bernina repair shops in your area, bet you'll find one. Good luck

    I can help you out. First a Bernina machine is never old and worn out. 1985 it probably is a 1130 or something close. Don't ever let go of it. There are 3 places in Houston that are called It's A Stitch. They are Bernina dealers, where I bought both my Bernina's. There is one on Westheimer in west Houston, one on 1960 in NW Houston and one on 1960 also in NW Houston but on the other end of 1960. Let me know what area you want to go to and I give you a couple of other names.

    Thank you so much. For one thing it will not make the decorative stitches correctly, the lights are both out, and some time it will go backwards. The machine is 1230 and has really been a great one. I love it, with the names of the ones you have given me, (which I copied) I also have the name of another person Melvin Ballard 1923 Hamlin valley Dr.
    Houston, Texas and his phone number. He said he has been attended services for 17 1/2 years. Is this one you were talking about. He also has a 1 day evergency service and hopefully I can get that and he can at least let me know about the machine. It is about a 2 hour drive from here,but that is o.k.
    Thank you again for your information Glenda Texas

    The only Bernina sewing machine repair place here is in Beaumont. They are the ones who said it was old and worn out. It is a 1230 that I got in 1985. I have not checked in Lake Charles, which is only about an hour drive, but I have found some in Houston which will be about 2 hour drive. I just want to fiind a dependable person to check this machine over. Thank you for your help Glenda in Texas
