But it certainly does not lack quality: this Bernette ranks among the best for quality / price ratio, being a tool capable of performing work of different nature at an affordable price.
The practicality of Bernette Chicago 5
What makes this machine one of the most practical on the market? Not only its compactness, but also different functions that speed up daily sewing practices, such as hems or patches. Bernette Chicago 5 does not miss anything!
One of the most common difficulties that sewing machines present is the position and keys with respect to the sewing area, but also their flat surface. A peculiarity of Bernette Chicago 5 are its slightly curved keys, positioned to the side, which adapt perfectly to contact with the fingers, avoiding uncomfortable interruptions and sudden movements that could ruin the work. To make your work even more practical, Casa Bernette has also thought of the direct selection of 10 useful points through special buttons. Simple, isn't it?
By purchasing the Bernette Chicago 5 you receive not only a machine but also a series of integrated tools that contribute to making the sewing experience optimal. First of all, practical scissors stored in a special compartment, easily accessible during the sewing activity. You will also find a wire cutter on the left side of the machine and a second integrated into the needle plate, which ensure easy cutting of the threads while sewing, as well as a semi-automatic threader, to thread the needle with a simple gesture. The work is completed by an LCD display that clearly shows the selected point as well as its speed.
The functions of Bernette Chicago 5
This Bernette is a computerized machine. This means that many of its functions are automatic with the aim of making work easier and faster. Among them is the needle stop, which depending on the setting of the function, stops at the top or bottom. The Start/Stop button, on the other hand, allows you to sew without pressing the pedal: a particularly convenient option for long seams, where constant pressure tends to tire.
This machine is also equipped with a good memory: 4 memories with 20 seats and the ability to edit or delete previous selections.
Still not enough? What if we told you that Bernette Chicago 5 also has the point stop function? This way you no longer have to seam backwards to prevent the seam from unraveling. It will only be necessary to press the button of the stitch stop at the end of the seam and then press that of the automatic thread cutter: the threads are cut and the seam is finished!
