    Yeah You! I know this has been really hard on you. The new machine should go nicely with your "new before the accident" sewing room.

    I traded my 440 for an 830 and there was a learning curve but I really do like it. It's an adventure when you learn something new and there is so much to learn. Classes from Bernina help immensely as does their website. I'm glad you have healed and congratulations on the new machine!! Enjoy!

    I'm so glad you get a decent settlement. My mom slipped and fell in WM. there was something like flour on the floor and she fell. the shopping cart over turned on her and not only did the fall mess up her back and knee but it took out a big part of the skin around her knee. She's hired several different lawyers from very prestigous law offices and the guess they all sold out to WM except the last one. He didn't ask her about what she expected to get..nothing. he just settled for $20,000. He would take his part, give the one that comes in and tries to settle.can't think of his title right now...his part..medicare their part and mom was left with just over $5,000. Her back surgery alone without any complications was suppose to be $60,000. She hasn't had the surgery. She can't afford it. Medicare won't pay for it since she was injured at WM. WM won't pay either. needless to say she refused the money. She said if that's all there was to her pain and suffering WM needed it worse than she did...and she's still suffering both with her back, backbone and knee.

    Welcome to the 830 club! I bought a gently used one a year ago and it is truly amazing. I mostly use it for embroidery - so fast and lovely. It is my third Bernina. enjoy and show us your stuff!

    A dealer told me that Bernina is having a lot of trouble with the 830. Also, several people on here have had problems as well. Do some research before you buy, would be my advice. Good Luck!
