Hi, All! I love the fact that this forum is international, and now I need some help. I am moving to Shanghai, China, and they use 220 current. The big problem? My sewing machines.
My Bernina dealer has put me on to a dual-current model, the Virtuosa 153 QE. The problem is my serger. I had planned to purchase a transformer and take my electronic Bernina serger, but friends in Shanghai tell me the current there is not always steady and even with transformers, electronic equipment can be damaged. Apparently Bernina does not have a dual-current serger.
Has anyone had experience with Western sewing machines/sergers in China? I’d appreciate any advice. When we lived in Japan I took my machines and had no problems, since their current is compatible with the US. What’s a sewer to do without her machines?
