The Bernina sewing machine, Swiss built, with a legacy of quality, remains one of the leaders in well-built sewing machines.
Reviewers of the Swiss made machines consistently give high marks to the quality innovations of these fine machines.
Named after Piz Bernina, a mountain in the Swiss Alps, Bernina is a Swiss company that was started in 1890 by Karl Friedrich Gegauf.
Gegauf’s first invention was a monogram embroidery machine that he used to establish a small embroidery business.
Gegauf was an inventor at heart, and, two of his inventions, having nothing to do with sewing machines. However they are interesting just the same–the pennyfarthing bicycle and the Daimler Benz motor car (You might know it as a Mercedes.)
This, of course, might be a selling point if you are trying to convince your husband or wife that Bernina makes quality machines.
