I am in a quandry. I own a Bernina 440QE that I adore. My problem is that I bought the Bernina quilt frame, loaded a quilt, and when I went to quilt, I only have about 4.5 inches in which to quilt.
I have always wanted the 820, and test drove it today. I always invesigate, sometimes oo much, but in reading the reviews, I see more negative comments than positive ones.
My reason for wanting the 820, besides the bells & whistles, is the bigger throat. I really don't want to get a long arm, as I love the stitch regulator. I am not that confident with free mothion, and really want the regulator.
I am looking for some honest reviews from anyone who has an 820. I am looking to make my decision by Sat., as the are offering 36 months no intrest.
I don't want to make a costly mistake, especially in this economy.
Thanks, for any replies.
