Default Bernina 790

If you have a Bernina 790, how do you like it? Pros and cons? I test drove one last weekend and would love to have it! If I can find it on sale.

It hasn't been on the market long, so will be awhile, I'm sure, before it's on sale. I've had my 780 for two years and absolutely love it. They appear to be very similar.

Boy, they must be starting over with numbers. I have had my Bernina 1530 which was the top of the line in the 90s, only having to replace the bobbin case because I used CAN AIR to clean out the dust bunnies! I would suggest you wait and see how the reviews come out for this machine.

I've had my 790 for about 3 months now and all I can say at this point is that I'm in love with my Bernina��
It started off the first few weeks with a couple little hiccups that an update took care of......after that initial startup it has been a dream, I owned a 780 (which I also loved) before this one and the 790 so far is quieter, smoother, less vibration when I'm embroidering and just overall worth the upgrade from my 780!

I am wondering how your 790 is doing? I have a 780 and love it but I know that the 790 has a stitch designer and possibly better stitch quality. Have you any opinions on this after using the 790 and the 780? Seems like there is always a glitch when we get our new machines. Thanks so much. I am trying to decide if the upgrade from 780 to 790 is worth it.

Mine arrives sometime next week. Can't wait to take it for a test drive. I purchased a 1260 22 years ago and swore that would be the only machine that I would ever want or need!! :-)
