I have had a Bernina 1031 since 1993, and have sewed everything from quilts to christening gowns with it. Well, one day it just jammed while I was sewing and the 2 repairmen that I have taken it to diagnosed it as a slipped rotary. To fix it would cost approx. $350.00 and then if anything else went wrong, I could have a lot of money tied up in it. They both said Bernina had gone up on their parts so much until I could buy another brand for less than what it would cost to fix this one. I love my machine and and I'm so disappointed in Bernina for the drastic increase in parts until I probably will never own another one. Very Disappointed!!!!
