    Is it true?

    Is it true that a long arm machine and table cost about the same price as a car today?

    The Millemium lists for over $17,000, which is more than the last new car I bought last year. Actually, I think you can buy a small car for the list price of a Bernina 830. But that's comparing top of the line to the bottom. You can get an 18" for considerably less. I don't have room for any of them, so I don't need to worry about it.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    They certainly can. Although it is still possible to get one reasonable priced (ie: used or demo models). You just have to do your research.

    Not as much as my car, but not cheap. I just ordered a mid-arm I think they call it, a Sweet 16 and it was considerably cheaper than my Honda Odyssey. It is frightening what things cost now, even down to groceries.

    Try looking at the Bailey midarm. It works great for home use and very reasonable in comparison to the professional models.

    If you get the design computer with it, it can be as much as a car. I did not and my 18 inch Baby Lock Crown Jewel with frame was less than half the cost of my new mid sized car. The computer set up would have added $5,000 or more. But I am sure you could get a used car for the cost of my setup!

    It's depends on the type of car you buy. LOL The car I bought my niece was $7000 used and my car cost over 35k. The most expensive long arm system I've seen was about $30 thousand brand new with all the bells and whistles, all computerized. Buying a LA is not an impulse buy so I have plenty of time to shop and wait for a bargain price on a used one.
    Got fabric?
