I just picked up my new Bernina 820 on Friday. After much debate and research on this machine vs a midarm for the same price to fit on my Bernina frame, I went with the 820. I am sewing on it now, and will put it on my frame when I get it set up. It will be hard to leave it there. This will probably be the last machine I ever buy because it has everything I could possible want in a machine. (I already have a machine that embroiders) Thanks to all that gave me insight on which way to go.
