Have your dreams come true with your   




Your Bernina Artista 200 can do anything that you can imagine - and it is so easy.  Simply let your creativity run free.

Let's go ahead and take a look at your embroidery & sewing machine! 



We will start with the sewing features of your Bernina.

Your Bernina comes with  it's very own heavy duty  fabric Bernina cover for easy transportation to your Quilt retreats,  Quilt classes,  sewing circles, Embroidery club,  craft shows or wherever else you desire to easily transport your Bernina.


What about transporting and storing all our accessories for your Bernina

Bernina thinks of everything!   Your Bernina Artista 200 comes with a matching bag that has an adjustable strap so you can carry it over your shoulder,  or like a suitcase.  You have room for your embroidery module, hoops manuals and all other accessories for your Bernina Artista 200.



Lets take a short tour of the sewing aspects of your Bernina!

What are some of the  accessories that  come with your sewing machine?

Angular tox key,  lint brush,  seam guide,  vertical spool holder pin,  spools discs, Bernina seam ripper, screwdriver, felts and compensating tool.





Now let's see what you have for feet!

  • Reverse pattern foot No. 1C.  - For practical and decorative stitches (On Machine)

That is not all!!

Where are you storing all these feet when not in use?

Again --- Bernina thinks of everything.  You get not one but two new accessory boxes to keep all you presser feet,  bobbins and etc. real organized.





There is more - let's check out what else you have!

Here you have an extension table for when you are working a a larger project and need a bit more sewing room or support for your project.  Your extension table even has a nice inch/cm  measurement on the front of the table for quick measurements.  You will also get a knee lift. If you have never used one of these - you have a real treat in store for you. This is one of my favorite things. When you have a project that you are working on and you have everything placed exactly where you need to have it - but you need to turn it a bit. Opps!! What do you do? You really need a third hand. Your knee lift is your THIRD HAND!! Just gently press with your knee against the knee lift and VIOLA up goes your presser foot and you can move your fabric!!

We don't want to forget the clear cloth guide for guiding your fabric without the guess work.  This is a great tool for when you need to sewing a




You also receive a genuine Bernina Foot control and power cord.




Now let's put together your Bernina with the Extension table, knee lift and cloth guide and see how all that works for the perfect sewing combination!




All of this is completed by your Bernina Artista 200 Instruction Manual. Your manual has many sections.



You will start in the practical sewing section. This goes through the most common stitches and applications for those stitches. 



When you first turn on your Bernina it will show your start up screen:  Your Bernina has a very slight line across the screen that you can hardly see and does not affect the view or operation of your Bernina at all.  Your Bernina has been factory serviced but because the slight line does not affect your Bernina in any way it was decided not to have the costly screen replaced.



After you sewing machine starts it comes up with the the screen with your practical stitches.

On the right side of your sewing machine are the dials for stitch length & width.

Needle position buttons.

You will also see your Creative consultant button & your tutorial button.

Also there is the Clear button and the Set up Button


Everything is right where you can easily see and access.


You even have a scissors button on your machine to cut your thread!  Also on the left of your Bernina is your favorite function button and pattern end and quick reverse button.


Notice on one of your screen selections it gives advice on fabrics and thread choices. WOW how easy is it to use your Bernina!

Look at your Quilting stitch screen and the quilting stitch sample

Here are some stitch samples. There are way too many to show all of your stitches on your Bernina.

Multidirectional Screen and some samples of multidirectional stitches.

Font screen and alphabet samples

Don't forget buttonholes - all the guess work is gone with your Bernina

As you can see, the sewing element of your Bernina is so easy and fun. You can be just learning to sew or someone that has sewn for years, this sewing machine is made for you. Unleash your creativity and most of all have fun.

Now let's see what you can create with the embroidery aspect of your

Bernina Artista 200


Your embroidery module is detachable and fits in your red carrying bag with all of your Bernina accessories. So handy when you travel with your Bernina to Quilt classes, embroidery club, seminars and retreats.

If you want to store your Bernina Artista 200 with the embroidery module on - Bernina even thought of that and included a zip on case that goes with your sewing machine cover that you would normally use.

On Feb-21-12 at 12:35:53 PST, seller added the following information:

We forgot one really important and very fun thing for your Bernina -- Your genuine Bernina walking foot with two soles!!   Every sewist needs a walking foot, when you are sewing layers of fabric it helps your top layer of fabric  and bottom layer of fabric feed at the same time.
