No accident but my 931 was giving me problems so took it to have it looked at and too costly to have repaired. Also took the 1630 and that was just cleaned and oiled. My hubby watched as others checking out new machines and before I knew it I was there with them and he bought me the Bernina Artista 635. I know I should or could do with out it but he insisted. So, here I am and will be going to classes this time to learn how to us it correctly and get all the ins and outs of it. So, glad hubby did what he did but I said I don't need that for the cost at this time of our lives but he insisted. So, anyone with good ideas on what you have done in the past with this machine, I am open for reading your responses.
