    I have had mine for almost 3 years, and I love it. It does everything I want it to, and has several functions that I haven't needed yet. I did not buy the embroidery model, and I usually take my Singer FW to classes, because the 440 is heavier, but it does travel well when I do need to take it.

    I love love love my 440. It does everything I want and then some. I still am learning new things this machine does. I have had mine for several years now. I love using the BSR unit.

    I have had mine almost 4 years now. I love the machine and the BSR and have had no problems with either, also no limitations. I bought the embroidery module but haven't used it, wish I hadn't bought it - not that it's bad, but I just am not interested in machine embroidery at this time. I keep thinking I will use it for labels one of these days...

    I have this, we bought it in July (2010). I love it, it has so many wonderful features! I bought it because I wanted to be able to FMQ, and I just couldn't do it with my 1951 Singer, but the Bernina does it wonderfully.

    I have had my baby for about a year and a half and she is fabulous!! So happy with her and I got the embroidery module to go along with it.

    You can't go wrong with this one!

    I'm definitely in love with my girl. I've had her about a year and I learn new things every time I use her. You won't regret it if you opt for one.

    I bought mine second hand a couple of years ago and love it. It's a great machine that sees a lot of use.

    I have the Bernina 440 QE and I must say that I just love her!! She's a real workhorse and doesn't require a lot of attention to keep her running smoothly..... :D :thumbup:

    I have the Bernina 440QEE and it's a powerhouse. Will sew anything. Many attachments, perfect for sewing clothing, household decor, canvas, anything.

    I have mine set for embroidery with rayon thread, and that's all I use it for.

    But it is capable of Much more than that.

    I've had one for 6 months and love it-just finished my last 2 classes related to machine-they were sooo helpful. Having a store that offers support is a plus. I had sewn for 40+ years on a Singer Touch and Sew-this is like a Lexus by comparison.

    I've had mine for about 3 years and its a good old reliable workhorse. However, I wish it had a) a bigger throat, b) an automatic thread snipper, and c) warning light when the bobbin thread is running out !! A wish list, yes, but a lot of other makes now have these as standard
