Stefanie Wells Ruiz at Vintage Berninas

My beautiful grandmother bought her Bernina 830 record in October 1978. She lovingly made many articles of clothing on this machine. When she passed away in 2012, she left me her machine. I just recently, as in the last month, brought it back to life. I used her well-preserved manual to learn how to thread the bobbin, oil her properly, and put in a new needle and she sounds like she did all those years ago. I have been using this amazing work of art for the last month. Every time I sit down and turn her on….it is as if my grandmother is sitting with me. I am so grateful for this gift that keeps on giving every day.
