I have an embroidery-only machine (Babylock) and an older Bernina (with a large collection of feet). I would like a sewing machine with integrated dual feed. I was thinking of buying one of the new Bernina 710s (b/c of its integrated dual feed and ability to use a lot of my Bernina feet) but am reading of lots of problems with the 7 series. 'Started getting interested in Pfaffs and their IDT, except that the closest dealer is 100 miles away. Have seen quite a few Pfaffs on Ebay... the Select line and Ambition line. I've communicated with someone who would sell me an older 7530 for around $700 but I fear it might need servicing.... read about mother boards burning out, etc.
I'd like to begin quilting (learner) but mainly just am interested in a good machine to sew all types of fabric evenly. 'Would love to hear your advice.
