    I have this book and it's wonderful!

    http://www.amazon.com/Sewing-Machine...7483066&sr=1-1

    It was recommended to me by the woman that I bought some of my 301's from.
    Ijust got that book, it has a lot of information in it, I haven't read the whole thing yet, though.

    Thank you! I figured out that it's a 128. Now I can find the right manual for it!

    Bobbins for the Berninas will fit the FW's I think its the 540, but you cab find them at Joanns and Hancocks if not I have plenty of them.

    No bobbins for the Berninas do NOT fit the FW, the Bernina bobbins are too tall and won't fit in the bobbin case.
    I buy my bobbins from "www.221parts.com" I have found that the bobbins from Joann's for the FW are often poorly made.

    I found some at my singer store today. Thanks anyway Billy and Sharon.

    Melinda you got a awesome deal!

    Geeze, if you got a 222 for just over $300 -- YOU GOT a DEAL!
