I am so happy I purchased a new Bernina today! It is the Activa 230 Patchwork Edition, which I had the dealer add a start stop unit and Freehand system to. I ordered a special foot control that will actually move the needle up and down! WOW! What great features! Once I finish my quilt top on my Babylock I will be able to experiment more with this machine!
I currently own a Babylock Quest Plus and a Brother Project Runway Edition machine.
I usually use my Babylock every day but I guess that I will begin to alternate projects between the Babylock and the Bernina.
I use the Brother Machine for crafting and sewing on home dec fabrics.
