I've been sewing on a Bernina 440QE for the past couple of years and really loved her. By no means had I learned everything about her either.
Back track a bit....I stepped into a hole in my local Wal-Mart's parking lot in Sept of 2010. Broke my ankle and also did a lot of damage to muscles, ligaments and tendons. The break healed but the other has bothered me until March of this year when they finally did surgery to clean up my ankle.
We've been going back and forth with Walmart on the settlement for the past few weeks and came to an agreement last week.
I've wanted to upgrade my machine for a while but didn't know if I wanted one of the new 7 series and had no plans to get an 830 at all. Yeah I would have loved one but....
Well my husband told me to go get the 830!!! She's previously loved and has no blemishes at all on her!! She's got 1.6 million stitches. Her name is AllieB. In honor of both my grandmothers who sewed and quilted.
I'm so ready to jump in with both feet but am making myself hold on and try and learn about her before getting too overwhelmed.
Good thing I live some 30 miles or so from my dealer! Watch out world!!! I'm coming through with both guns blazing and ready to sew all my fabric!!!
