BERNINA 3 series
The 3 series machines are a great entry range machine which have at least one alphabet, along with an automatic one step buttonhole.
The 330 is the first in the BERNINA range to have an automatic buttonhole, along with all the goodness from the 215 and being the same size, the 330 has extra stitches and slide speed control.
For those getting into quilting, the 350 is the obvious choice as it comes with a free hand system, walking foot and patchwork foot.
The 380 is the top of the range with 221 stitches, topped off with a polished black front cover for those wanting extra style.
