    OMG, I would just cry and make hubby buy me a new one (if it were his fault). I'm so sorry for your Bernina, but...congrats on the lighter one!

    Oh my, how heartbreaking! I do hope she is fixable. My Bernina stays home because she is so heavy. My little Featherweight is the traveler.

    I had the Bernina Artista 170 Quilting edition that would also embroider. I haven't heard the final repair costs, however, $500 for a circuit board (which I know that it least will have that) and the front of the machine also has damage that did not allow me to sew. So at this point, I think I did better to purchase a lighter model computer 3 series-380. I feel sure Jack will give me a credit and that should help.

    sorry she is broken , hope she can be fixed. My Bernina virtuosa 160 is very heavy with hard carrying case. I can't carry it so I purchased a Jenome Gem and love it, it is a nice little machine, also have a singer featherweight that I take in the camper for piecing, love that little thing. I would love to update my Bernina for quilting but am loosing my eyesight gradually to macular, so will use what I have as long as I can. Am blessed to still have enough sight in one eye , so I can keep sewing.

    Well guys, you will never believe this! Turns out my Artista will not need a circuit board but does need a new tension thingy. The total cost (along with a service) is $170.00. The part will have to be ordered and may take as long as 3 weeks to arrive @ ASC. I am so happy that I willl now have 2 machines - a lightweight one for traveling and my Artista to use at home. I still can't believe it!

    I LOVE my Bernina artista 180...I bought it used, and it also has an embroidery module that I haven't even tried yet. It is a heavy one, too. But, like SevenYearItch said, it will last forever! Mine came with a #37 foot, and it has been a godsend to me as I was having problems perfecting my 1/4 inch seam.

    No accident but my 931 was giving me problems so took it to have it looked at and too costly to have repaired. Also took the 1630 and that was just cleaned and oiled. My hubby watched as others checking out new machines and before I knew it I was there with them and he bought me the Bernina Artista 635. I know I should or could do with out it but he insisted. So, here I am and will be going to classes this time to learn how to us it correctly and get all the ins and outs of it. So, glad hubby did what he did but I said I don't need that for the cost at this time of our lives but he insisted. So, anyone with good ideas on what you have done in the past with this machine, I am open for reading your responses.

    I have 2 Baby Lock machines. The nearest dealer is 250 miles away. So was taking them with me while visiting my mom and was going to have them serviced. I rolled my car on a mountain road. One machine was on the floor tightly between the driver's seat and the back seat. It moved about 3 inches. The other was in the trunk of the car. Neither had any major damage. The bobbin threader needed adjusting on one. The only damage to me was dislocated ribs. The car was totaled.

    Glad you were not injured too bad. Your car can be replaced.

    I did check on my homeowners insurance for this type of accident. No coverage! However if the house burns, then it would be covered. I need to take pics of everything in the house, LOL, just in case. There was a house across the street and it DID burn. Lot's of damage, and took a long time to re-build (same lot)- The owners were able to have many upgrades and the house turned out beautiful! Soooo.... I am just grateful my repair on the Artista is only $170 INSTEAD of having to be used for parts!

    This week I spilled a glass of water on my Singer Futura. It seems that though it was sericed, it will probably not live much longer as water was still coming out of it after he dried it out overnite. It has a smell as well. He has offered me a great deal on a Brother, but am trying to be sure that is the way I want to go. My LQS instructor loves her Bernina as well. I think I will check out their prices as well.
