I bought a 6 month old bernina 1150mda to replace my brother 3034d.
It sews wovens perfectly but doesnt seem to sew knits as nice as my brother did...

The dog feeds seem to mark the fabric where i start. Also pulls at the end and doesnt come off straight at the end either. Its like it is to rough for the fabric.

I really want to love this machine

I have the 1150MDA and it sews knits (lightweight to suitings) perfectly and does not mark my fabrics. Have you tried turned the top knob to decrease the foot pressure? Mine is set to M. I have never had to adjust this for any of my fabrics (I have owned this for over a year). You might need to have it serviced or at least checked out by a certified Bernina tech.

I'd consider having it serviced perhaps. I have the same serger and it has never had those issues with knits. Have you already tried turning the presser foot pressure down to 1?

Maybe someone else will Jump in with better ideas....hope you get it sorted out.

Check your pressure foot adjustments. See where it sits. it might be sitting to sew fleece or some other heavy fabric. Get a few scraps together and see. Keep the adjustment and sew demin and a few other pieces of fabric. If it doesn't sew light weight fabric. you mignt have to increase the pressure foot just a bit. After adjusting the pressure foot a bit try sewing lighter fabric. then some of the heavier fabric. I have a pfaff and i have to adjust sometime the pressure foot for certain typs of fabric.
Also check your manual.
Hope this helps. ( if it doens't help take it in and have it tuned up for a older machine it probley hasn't been maintain.)

I agree with everyone else. I have had mine for almost 2 years now and 90% of what I sew with is knits. Everything from light t-shirt weight to heavier sports knits. I have never had this kind of issue. I would definitely have a technician look at it. And bring in some samples of what you have sewn so he can see the result.

I am wondering if you were able to figure out your problem, because I am having the same issue with knits on my Bernina. The seam sort of veers off to the right and doesn't end well. I have to lift the presser foot as soon as the cutting is done and push the fabric over. Even then, it doesn't really fix it all the way. Any new thoughts?
