When you purchase your Bernina 500 from Quilt Direct we want you to enjoy your new machine and fulfil your creativity. We offer personal tuition here in Devon and can even help arrange accommodation for you too. Located on Dartmoor there are facilities for walking, cycling, fishing & golf nearby so partners and family are welcomed too as are well behaved canines! We offer one days free tuition with the 500.*
Bernina in London also offers free tuition days at their London Tuition Centre, these are small classes and your own model of machine is provided for use on the day.

Please note that to qualify for free tuition you must take your course within a year of purchasing your machine.

Bernina Machines sold in the UK currently have a full 7 year warranty on the whole machine.

To qualify for the extended warranty you need to register the purchase of your machine by returning the completed warranty card to us to sign. We will then arrange for a certificate of extended warranty to be sent to you from Bogod Co.
In order to comply with the extended warranty you will need to maintain the machine and have it serviced within recommended periods. All Bernina sewing machines have electronic stitch counters*, which give an on screen message when it is necessary to have a service. However, even if a machine is only used occasionally and the stitch count for a service is not reached, it is still necessary to have the sewing machine serviced a minimum of every 3 years.

The extended warranty applies for normal domestic use only - not educational or commercial use - and to the first purchaser only.

*Except the 1008S
