I have 2 Pfaff machines, a 7550 and a 2144. Love them both.

A Brother XR9000, Singer 15-125, and a Juki TL98Q on a Grace frame. I would love to have a larger machine on the frame. A dream machine for me would be the Janome 12000, but that's just a dream.

I bought a Bernina 830 as a retirement gift (with my husbands blessing) to myself!! Also have a Bernina 1530 that is my travel machine! I would love to have LA but don't have space or $$$ for one!

I need to find a bargain on those somewhere!
I like to use www.threadart.com. They have an Ebay store too by the same name where you can shop. My hubby introduced me to this one and I have never had a problem with inferior thread from them.

I have a Viking 100 and a Viking Rose. Bought them because service is closeby and reliable (7 days a week). The closest Bernina dealer is an hour away, and Pfaff is 1.5 hrs. away. This really was the deciding factor for me.

When I was well and working I bought the Designer SE. No way could I ever make that kind of purchase now so I'm glad I got it while I wasn't sick. Prior to that I had the Designer 1 which I traded in for the Designer SE. I got 100% of what I paid for the Designer 1 since it was less than a year since I purchased it. Viking gives you full trade up value for 1 year after you purchase a machine. Years before that I had the Viking Lily 555 and sold that to my friend and I used that money towards my Designer 1. I have loved them all. I always have been curious about the Bernina machines. I did test one out prior to buying my first Viking which was greater than 10 years ago. I liked them both, but ended up going with the Viking. I still would like to have a Bernina too one day if I hit the lotto :)

I have the Pfaff 2144 updated to 2170, and it's a keeper. Had a few non-embroidery TOL Berninas, and their Deco 600 which started the embroidery addiction. Bought a Babylock Ellageo which was great, but wanted bigger and better. Sold that to a friend who still hast it; and I bought the Pfaff 2144 which I would never part with. It does all I need and more, and I still haven't made use of all the features. Now, if someone wants to bless me with the latest Creative Vision, have your people call my people. :lol:
