    I have a Bernina 830, made about 1972, she runs great and has 13 feet that came with it, also an extension table. Does anyone know about what it sold sale for? A lady asked if I would like to sell it, well I don't use it so it would be best, but I have no idea what to tell her on the price. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

    I just looked on Ebay. The cheapest is $299.00 and still has 19 hrs to bid on it.

    The Bernina 830 is a collectors item like the SINGER featherweight 221. please don't give it away cheap...she is a real gem...My Mom has the 930 and has been using it steady since she bought it in the mid 80's.

    I'd say a minimum of $350 -- probably more with all the feet and the extension table (which can be hard to find). If you have an eBay account, you can do a search on the Bernina 830 for "completed auctions" to find out what they have actually sold for online.

    I agree, Please find out what they have been selling for before you sell it. You may want to give it a second thought. I would keep it for a spare.

    I wouldn't trade or sell my 830. She purrs like a kitten, never balks regardless of what goes under the presser foot.
    In my opinion, she's the best machine I own. I bought her second handed and paid a lot more than $350 for her. But she came with the extension table, and many extra specialized feet.

    I sold one on Ebay about 1.5 years ago for $550 + shipping.
    I would watch to see what they end for now and go by that figure.
