    Anyone with a Bernina 830 and the long arm table for it?

    When I bought my Bernina 830, I bought the long arm table that goes with it. It's a very sturdy table. All metal. I have had it for almost two years and haven't even opened the boxes. I'm hoping someone has this machine and table and can tell me how they like it for long arming. Is it a easy to LA or hard on the table. I can use it to quilt my quilts, but I want to know what it's like with the table. Any help?

    I have the same set up but have not done any quilting on it as yet. Between moving it to another room, daughters illness, husbands bad back and mother in law passing, I have not even done much sewing. I need to get busy and start using it or I will have to go back for more classes on how to use it.

    I don't have the long arm table or Bernina 830 but I have seen it in operation with the computer and with the design boards. The computer lets you choose designs and stretch or shrink them into different block shapes, really neat. The design boards let you do pantograms of whatever boards you get. You can also just FMQ with the machine on the long arm set up. I tried it out briefly doing some FMQ and it is easy to operate and FUN! Get that puppy set up and show us what you can do!

    I have the quilt frame but not the 830, however my friend has both that quilt table and the 830 and she loves it and does remarkable work on it. She added Quilt Motion lately and that is wonderful.
