Automatic limitation for double needles:
When you change from a single to a double needle, the "double needle button" will help you adapt your needle to the presser foot so that neither needle will inadvertently hit the presser foot and break off. The "double needle safety" function limits the stitch width so that the needle doesn't hit the presser foot.
Adjusting the presser foot pressure to suit the material:
For some materials, your bernette 38 allows you to adjust the presser foot pressure which is advisable for lightweight or thin fabrics.
Automatic thread cutter and tie-off function:
When you get to the end of a seam, the thread has to be tied off to prevent the seam from unravelling. Normally, you would do this by making a quick backwards and forwards stitch. This is no longer necessary with the bernette 38, as it has an automatic tie-off function. Simply select the Tie-off button and the end of the seam will be tied off automatically. When you have finished your sewing project, press the button for the automatic thread cutter and you can pull your completed work out from under the needle without having to reach for the scissors.
Extension table for large sewing projects included:
The extension table supplied with the bernette 38 is easy to attach and detach It gives you more space for large sewing projects such as clothes, quilts or curtains.
Eight presser feet are included. You can choose the right presser foot for any application:
With your bernette 38 you will get eight presser feet and a stable presser foot shank. You can select the appropriate presser foot for whatever you want to sew. For example, you can choose the zigzag foot for zigzag stitches, the relevant satin foot for your satin stitches and the buttonhole foot for your buttonholes. With the appropriate feet, you can accomplish your sewing projects quickly and with excellent stitch quality.

I purchased this "back up" machine about a year ago to use for classes and vacation travel. I was already accustomed to Bernina quality as I normally sew on a 740. This b38 has been wonderful and I highly recommend it! The tension is consistent, stitches are excellent and I love the automatic thread cutter and comprehensive manual. I shopped several brands for this purchase including Janome, Brother and Pfaff and I'm convinced I got the best possible "back up" machine at the best price!
I used Brother's machine for 10 years. I still love it but wanted to try different brand for thicker material and more stich pattern. Foot pressing strength can be adjusted and that is very helpful. Auto cutting thread is nice feature. I like the fact most foot from Brother's can be used. Autho threadding is very easy and great, and tension setting is very easy. I am satisfied with my purchase. IF you are beginner, it is not necesary to have this upscaled machine, so I recommend for an experienced user.
It was easy to find what I was looking for.
This sewing machine has many functions and this is lower lebel of bernina. I chose this machine because of some functions I was looking for. One step button holes, eyelet, bartack, monogram, auto thread cutting, speed, and press foot pressure. I like it overall. It is easy to use and not to slow and quite. However I figured out the foot area makes me hunched and the foot lifting all the way up need strong arm, wrist power even after control the press foot pressure. And the monogram is not really needed.
The one thing I don’t really use is another language except english.
However I decided to keep it because this is home sewing machine and this is better than other home sewing machine I tried and this is very easy and anyway I can control the foot lifting.
I just wish this machine is higher foot space.
I bought this sewing machine to be able to take a quality machine to classes and on vacation. It has been a joy...love the even, smooth stitching, extended work surface and especially the automatic thread cutter, My primary machine is a bigger Bernina, but I love this machine. I find myself using it often, not just on vacation. It is perfect for piecing and quilting, too. Highly recommend.
