    Is this a good deal?

    I have found a Bernina Inspiration 1530. Bernina 2000 de serger and a "c" table with lift insertions for the machines for $750.00 is this a good deal? The story I was to,d is a lady bought it didn't use it much and she has passed away and son is selling.

    I have worked on both types of machines, and they usually last awhile. I'm not sure I know which table you are talking about, but if it is also in good condition, this sounds like a good deal. Will he let you sew on the machines to see how they run?
    Since I gain weight reading cookbooks, why can't I lose weight watching a fitness program?

    Yes, I tried them out they are nice. Just was not sure if this was a good deal or not.

    I don't know the current prices that the machine go for but you can check eBay. How many feet come with it? Most feet for my B 440 are about $50 each.

    Sounds like a really good deal to me. I found a Bernina 1530 (with accessories) that sold on Amazon for $795:

    The serger sold on Amazon for $358:

    I agree to ask if there is a variety of feet for the sewing machine. The feet are pricey!

    By "lift insertions", do you mean that both machines can be lowered and raised in the table? If so, that is a pricey table too.

    Don't let absence of feet prevent you from considering. That is an excellent price. Chances are only basic feet came with it.. Those that normally came with the machine since it was rarely use id. You can buy other feet as you need them.

    Buy it all for that price, then run away with the machines and table.......before someone else snatches them.

    It does sound like a great deal...the Bernina 1530 alone would probably be worth that if in good condition.

    Hello...............The table is probably worth $750 with the two lifts.
