    I have the Bernina 800.... it's over 30 years old, she has been very kind to me over the years, poor old girl has been replaced this year only because I wanted something bigger to quilt with.

    So you think I should steer clear of it? That is is why I love this board, keeps me from making so many boo boos.

    Thanks.

    Isn't it funny that we give our machines names and then feel kinda bad when we have to say good bye? :-) (My first Bernina a 440QE was named Nina...she was just replaced with Sadie my new 730E). My DH was just saying today that Nina probably feels abandoned :roll: Course my Bernina dealer assured me he would find her a good home 8-)

    I can't throw my girl away she has been too kind, she will just sit around and take in the sights in my sewing room. I'm sure she is content after all the hard work she has put in! :D

    Crlyn, course it is always nice to have a back up...then we don't wander around aimlessly when ours is out of commission! :-)

    I am sure the old girl enjoys the slower pace, just viewing all the eye candy (fabric) and creativity going on around her.

    Wow! Did I ever mess up I think it's a great buy and you can't go wrong with it. I must have fallen asleep when I was writing - so sorry!

    I don't think you could ever go wrong with a Bernina. Top of the line machines. I also have an older Bernina 830 record, sews like a dream, every time. I say go for it!

    I would buy it for $95. Sounds like a deal.

    I'm using a Bernina 830 as well and I love the machine. It is a work horse and has been extremely reliable. I have really come to rely on the Bernina brand. I actually had to have the motor replaced a couple of years ago because my grandmother (original owner) hadn't been able to take care of it and lived in AZ where the heat had affected it. My DH fixed the feed dog drop yesterday and now I get to see what more this wonderful machine can do! Wahoo!
