    Hi All,

    I just wanted to share my news....!

    I have been waiting to see what the new Bernina 500's would be like as I was thinking of buying one. Anyway, today we went to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham and off I went to the Bernina stand.

    Only real difference I could see and the sales person could tell me about in the new machines is a slightly improved screen, different lighting and on the 580 a 9mm stitch length and a thread cutter.

    Also the stitch regulator is only stardard with the 550,

    Whilst the new 500's are okay, you just seemed to get a lot more for your money from the 630........ so I bought one!!!!!!

    I have the most wonderful husband there is..... I really don't NEED another machine but I so wanted a Bernina with a stitch regulator so he said get it!

    My new Baby will join my other machines (Singer 66 Treadle, Jamone 4900QC, Janome Horizon and Brother 4000D) on Friday.

    I guess after this one arrives I won't be able to go down the new machine route for a little while!

    Oh I am so excited I can't wait until she arrives!

    Hugs and thanks for listening!

    Huge congrats! I've heard nothing but raves from 630/635 owners. I'm a multiple-machine gal myself, and recent Bernina convert/fanatic. Enjoy your new treasure!

    YAY for you!! Aren't awesome hubbies great to have??!!! I wouldn't trade mine...although I did just tell him my "addiction" to buying all things quilting is his fault...because he never gripes about it... :-)... He did not exactly agree with that, however...Have fun with your new machine, and let us know how it sews...
