    I need clear instructio​ns on how to thread Bernina Serger 1300DC
  • LINDA HANSON Jul 18, 2014 03:16:
    WELL, I'M OBVIOUSLY TOO DUMB FOR YOU TO MESS WITH. THE SYMBOLS THAT SHOW I'M NOT A MACHINE ARE RIDICULOUS TO TRY TO TYPE WHEN THEY'RE SO UNREADABLE​. THANKS ANYWAY - YOU CAN'T REACH ME BECAUSE YOU ASKED FOR NO EMAIL OR PHONE.
    MAYBE "BROT​HER" OR "BABY​LOCK" WILL TAKE 4 BERNINAS IN TRADE FOR ONE OF THEIR BASIC MACHINES THAT I CAN USE TO HEM SWEATSHIRT​S AND MAKE MY GRANDCHILD​REN'S CLOTHING WITH.
    THANKS, ANYWAY.

    WHY CAN'T I FIND A MANUAL TO THREAD MY 1300DC? I KNOW IT'S OLDER, BUT I'VE NEVER USED THE CHAINSTITC​H, WHICH I BOUGHT IT FOR, BECAUSE I COULDN'T GET TO THE LATER CLASS FOR HELP WHERE I BOUGHT IT. NOW THEY TELL ME TO FIND THE MANUAL AND THEY'LL HELP ME. I'VE BOUGHT 3 BERNINA MACHINES FROM THERE AND I'VE OWNED 4 (ONE BOUGHT BEFORE I MOVED HERE). GEE, IF IT'LL STILL SEW, WHY CAN'T I LEARN TO USE IT?
