    I have it threaded correctly. Thanks Gerbie and others who clarified for me. I have had an offer for feet and I did PM the person so I might be able to get the feet for a good price. I am just waiting to hear back. My niece has already put in dibs if I get rid of it which she knows is not happening. She was with me when I bought it. It sure sews wonderful and I am so excited about getting this great price. Thanks to all of you who confirmed it was a good machine. My niece told me I had to find her one for a great price now...don't think I could ever find another one for $25...but I would have said my chances were a million to one also so you never know. I love this board.

    Thanks for telling us how you got it. Better than a fairy tale, haha! :-)

    Wow! What a deal! I wish I could find a Bernina that didn't cost an arm and a leg. I would love to have a Bernina, but they are out of my price range. I've never found a used one within range. When people ge a Bernina, they keep it. Maybe some day . . .

    My Bernina is a 1230. I bought it used years ago. Does anyone know what year it was made? Runs like a charm and never had any problems with it. Prior to the Bernina, I always had Vikings.

    Look at you serial number on the back of you machine. On Berninas made since the 70s, the first digit denotes the decade (1=70s, 2=80s, 3=90s, 4=00s, 5=10s). The second number in the serial denotes the year within the decade (i.e. 23=1983, 36=1996, 45=2005, ect.). HTH!
