    Hubby has said he will buy me a sewing machine for Valentines Day. The only dealer we have nearby to service and for classes is a Bernina/Baby Lock. My friend has a Grace that I used and liked so that is my general plan. Any horror stories or bad things about this machine I need to know first?

    I'll be interested to see the answers. I got the Melody for Christmas, for the same reason, I wanted a local dealer who could repair and answer questions.

    I own a Bernina sewing and embroidery machine. My dealer is a dope who is of no help to me so I contacted a dealer who is about 75 miles from my home to help me out with problems I was having. We got to discussing different machines and he said that as a technician of both Babylock and Bernina machines, he thinks the Babylock is more user friendly and easier to maintain and repair. The next machine I buy will be a Babylock.

    I have a Babylock Grace. I bought it to carry to classes, since it is easy to carry. I have had no problems with it. It is important that you have a reputable service person. That is the main reason that I buy Babylock. Happy sewing.

    I have a Babylock Quest Plus that I love. Can't touch a new Bernina for the price of a Grace. Used Berninas and older Pfaffs offer quality at lower than new prices too. Can get individual teaching on those, too.
