I am going to make a fusion quilt and want to take the squares with me into hospital, to crochet around them. Something to do whilst recovering. How can I Blanket Stitch around the edges [1/4” in] using my Bernini 440 Quilter? Been a while on the shelf and I need tutoring in the setting up of the blanket stitch to give me 14 loops along each edge for crocheting. Can someone help me out?
Where can I buy a stitch card for my Bernina Aurora 440 QE please? I think in Melbourne.
I am looking at buying an Aurora 440Quilters Edition Bernina, approx 7 years old. Very good condition, always serviced. Could you tell me what I should expect to pay? Sue.
Hi Sue, I’m just wondering the same question. What is this particular worth second hand???
Need to know what is the right price to pay, cheers Barbara
Hi Barbara, I posted this 7months ago but didn’t get a response. I have since bought the machine for $1,000. I spoke with the guy who serviced it last and he said he would ask $1;200. This would come with a warranty from the store. My machine come with a lot of extras, different feet including the BSR which I was told is quite expensive. It is a lovely machine, I don’t think I got a bargain but I am very happy with it. I guess it depends if it has been looked after and had it,s servicings regularly. Hope this has been helpful, Sue.
Where can I purchase a “needle threader” for my 440.
It is the inbuilt device that pulls down and swings around the needle.
I am in Caloundra Qld Au.
I was sewing with my machine, the machine started to stitch backward , so I stop sewing. When I started to sew the machine would not work. The power was on but, the foot pedal did not respond. What did I do wrong?

I have the Bernina 440e and can not remember how to get the blanket stich on it to do applique?HELP please. Merinda
There are 2 types of blanket stitches, #45 and 46. The only difference is 46 is a thicker stitch, which will look more like its been hand appliqued. If you cant remember how to get to number 45 on your machine (or 46), Just look at buttons with 1-9 (blue buttons ) on the right hand side of your machine. Underneath button number 7 is a white button with a # over the top. Press that, then press button 4 then 5 (or 6).
If you want to get to the stiches that have 3 digit references (for example stitch number 146), Hold that white button with the # until the number 1 appears on the screen then key the remaining two digits ( so for 146, you would then press 4 then 6)
Hope this helps.
When were the last Bernina Sewing Machines made in Switzerland?
Where are they presently made. I was told that my 440QE was Swiss made in 2011 however nothing on the machine says Swiss made.
I dont know when they were last made in Switzerland or where they are currently made, but on the front of my bernina 440qe, on the front of the machine, it says "aurora 440
Bernina" then in smaller red writing underneath that it states "made in Switzerland"
Hope this helps.
Definitely made in Switzerland.
Bernette made elsewhere- I think Thailand- or China
Bernina the only sewing brand not taken over by the Chinese
