Bernina 170e vs. Viking #1 Embroidery
I recently purchased my Bernina 170E earlier this which was used. Can’t afford the 200E. Well it was giving me problems with the tension sense its not automatic so I returned it and the dealer said I need to oil it every 6 hours of sewing, I thought that was strange well any how. I’ve been taking sewing classes at another sewing dealer they recently had a raffle and guess what? I won the Viking #1 machine, now I don’t have the space for both machines plus my Serger.
I have heard the 170E is great for piercing cause its only 5mm, but I haven’t had the time to plunge into that part of sewing yet. I only sew clothes. Any advise from the sewers out there, which one should I consider? Keep my Bernina 170e and sell the Viking. I really don’t know at this point. Any pointer will be greatly appreciated. :o)
