    Square Embroidery Hoop for Bernina?

    I need some advice about getting a square embroidery hoop for a Bernina, my problem is the price, almost $500.00 for a hoop. Wondered if anyone has one and is it worth it, what is your opinion. Thanks for help

    I have a Bernina and, at that price, I would make do with the hoops that I have.

    That is why I am having a hard time justifying. All Bernina's hoops are way expensive.

    And that is why I will never buy a bernina, just ridiculous their prices for accessories in my opinion, are the hoops made of gold.

    $500 for a hoop??? OMG!!!! You can get a decent used embroidery machine for that money! WITH the hoops!

    Holy cow.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have to agree that's outrageous. Could you maybe check with a dealer, or repairman to see if they have used ones for sale?

    My Bernina dealer has 25% off Bernina accessories once a year. I don't know if yours does but that would certainly help. I agree that $500 is outrageous!!
