Hi Group-

I never used anything but a Singer before today, when I got a used Bernina
1090 from eBay.  It is far from complete -- no bobbins, no manual, no knee
lift lever, only one foot.  Everything seems to function, but I have no
idea how it works.  It is very different from a Singer.  I can't figure out
the bobbin, I'm not even sure how to thread it.  I feel pretty stupid.

Does anyone have a .pdf of a Bernina manual that could help me out?

Thanks!
Jim

Re: Bernina 1090 help
Maybe your local Bernina Dealer has an orientation
class, as well as the parts you need. Since you did not
  buy the SM there, you will probably need to pay for
the class, but it could be a good expenditure. NAYY.

Re: Bernina 1090 help
I have two berninas, an old all-mechanical one and a fancy computerized
one. I take my computerized one (I believe your 1090 is also
computerized) in at least once a year for tuning up. It is necessary
with the newer computerized models.
My advice is to take the machine to a local authorized repair/dealer
outfit and get it cleaned and tuned up. They should be able to get you
the info on bobbins and the manual and so on. Expect to pay about $80
for the tune and clean, extra for repairs if they are necessary.

Hello Jim,
     Is it possible to take your machine to the Bernina store and they can help you thread it and you can buy some extras that didn't come with the machine. It also may need serviced.

I sure hope Jim has finally figured out how to work his ebay purchase after owning for nearly EIGHT YEARS, but if he hasn't there's always some Johnny come lately who will drag up an old, old, old thread and offer 'help.'

They must be bored and homebound with the snow and ice and went searching for old posts or  _anything_  concerning a Bernina.

But it was not "morningdove201" who initiated the thread, it was  
"im_greywlf".  Had you reponded to its post I would not have felt  
the need to defend poor 'morningdove201'.  ;-D
