I will be living in Turkey for 6 months and will be taking my Bernina
sewing machine (from US).  Can anyone tell me what kind/type of
transformer I will need to be able to use my machine in Turkey?

You might tell us which model it is.
If it is computer machine I would check with the dealer first. Might not be
a good idea

The machine is a Bernina Artista 165E

Simple enough. look at the nomenclature plate and if it says 120-250volt and
or 50-60hz you should be ok,

Hi
 I just moved from the US to France last year and I wouldn't recommend
using an American machine abroad, especially with computerized
machines. I went to talk to my singer dealer and he showed me 3
machines that he had kept that had bit the dust, the problem is the
hertz frequency the US is rated for i think 50 and basically the rest
of the world is 60. Anyway you have to have a transformer and a
converter.Even then from what i have read it stress the machine out ,
it causes a lag on the windings of the motor.
 sorry but i threw away the web link i had to the site i got all of
this from. definitely check with the dealer, bonne chance!

I assume you are going there for employment or military
reasons. If so, ask your contacts or hosts about the
possibility of buying a second hand machine from people
who are rotating back to the USA, or on the local
economy. PAT
