    Sewing Machine Model Number - numbering systems

    Is there a rhyme or reason to how sewing machine models are numbered?

    Bernina - for some reason unknown to me - has duplicated some numbers -

    Ummmmm........ In a word, no. I hate that Bernina did that and have no idea why. They ran out of numbers???

    Singer also couldn't leave well enough alone with the Featherweight name. They just ***had*** to use it again.

    Edit: How strange. I thought I was editing my original post. Just color me confused.

    I agree. I have a Bernina 1530 and then suddenly the newer machines were coming out with lower number of 200 series. Confusing.

    I thought giving the new Berninas the same number as the old series was a very dumb idea.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
