    I bought it!!!!

    I spent the week trying out the hardly used 1630 inspiration Bernina. It sews like a dream. She let me have it for $500. Thank you to everyone who posted when I questioned about buying it. I sewed hard with it and it did not miss a beat. I love it. I pieced two quilts with it. Points are perfect. Now I have to go machine quilt them so they do not become UFO's.

    Great news on your new machine! I have admired your avatar quilt picture. Do you have a larger picture of it here on the board?

    Thank you. No I do not have a larger picture. It is a very easy quilt to make. First quilt I ever machine quilted feathers on.

    Congratulations! Looking forward to owning a Bernina myself!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    I'm so happy for you! I have 2 older Berninas that are still providing me hours of happy sewing. The 930 is 28 years old and the 1031 is 21 years old.

    Congrats. I am so glad to hear that you are happy with your decision. I remember when I first purchased and started sewing on a Bernina, after sewing on a Kenmore for several years. The percision was like no other. I did not know that perfect tension was possible, or that you can actually sit down and sew and not fight with the machine to work. That was over 26 years ago, and I have desired no other brand. I wish you many days of happy sewing. Nothing sews like a Bernina.

    I have one also and love it. Had it for 19 years and is still going strong!
    Great deal also. You will enjoy many miles of stitching like I have!
