    What is it?

    I'm cleaning out my sewing area and came across something that has left me clueless. Do any of you know what this is? The bottom end of the long arm is square. There is a slot between the plastic-metal bar on the back and the front.

    Thanks!

    It belongs to a bernina. I have one. No idea what to do with it. While we are discussing berninas.

    the table which comes with the machine. In my group of quilters 5 of use have had this table snap in. The area that goes under the needle as it slides in place.
    they usually look like a crack, mine is taped up at present. Is this a manufacturing design fault or are we just unfortunate.

    May I ask which model you all have? I have a little Bernina Active. I do have difficulty putting the table on & taking it off that machine (it's a rather tight fit), but I haven't seen any cracks. Perhaps that's because I tend to leave it on the Activa for extended periods of time.

    That is interesting. That wasn't an option when I bought my Bernina 1530.
