I need a smaller, going to class and sewing bees machine. I have decided on a Bernette 46 cause its cute and I have 2 other Bernina's. Ok so I'm bias. I have seen this machine for so many different prices. The Bernina Stores have them for $249. and I have seen them online at lower prices. The thing is I don't know these places. I do know the wonderful ladies on this board are out and about and may come across this machine and could possibly pass on the price info and website that I could find my little machine. It is cute. Thanks for reading. Looking forward to hearing from someone out there.
