Hubby recently bought me one about $10000 but got 3 year service and lots of goodies! Love in. Am still learning about free motion quilting. Have done 2 small quilts not perfect but not bad for ruler work. Have 2 more ready but need to find out if need another surgery.

I have a simply sixteen handi quilter and have had it for two years and really liked it . Just recently tried the Bernia Q20 and it and it glides so much smoother than my simply sixteen. I was quoted a good trade in price for my simply sixteen and a great price on the bernia. I took two sewing machines in for service and tried the Bernia Long arm and was sold. I have 440 bernia quilter sit down sewing machine and really like it but would like the bernialong arm with the 9foot table. They are giving me almost what I paid for on the Simply 16 toward the Bernia long arm. So I am considering it. The store is not far from my home and they will come and dis-assemble and pick up the Simply 16 and assemble the Bernia free. Its swiss made and that is important. Have never had a problem with my 440 machine.
This store prices are great.

Actually I paid more for my long arm than I did for my car. Priorities you know lol. I used an inheritance to buy both.

I’m curious as to why Prism says this is Bernina’s first month on the market with their Q20? I have a fellow quilter who has owned hers for a couple of years now and wins ribbons at quilt shows with her work. http://www.sarahannsmith.com/
She loves her Q20 and does fabulous work on it.

Prism's post and mine are back from when this thread first started back in 2015. Bernina introduced their longarm line in 2015. https://www.bernina.com/en-US/Footer...y#history-2015

I have one and I really like mine. I can use my old quilting needles, donít have to buy bernina brand. It comes with a bobbin winder on it. I got a deal that has a table with it. Besides if anything goes wrong I have a reliable dealer to fix it. It has a built in stitch regulator. Tried them all at quilt show. Like this sit down the best and the deal.

Don’t I feel silly....I just caught that this morning when I came back in to the thread to look for more feedback on the subject. Thank you lyric girl and feline fanatic. I must have been day dreaming.

I’m so sorry and I’ll be sure to pay closer attention next time.

Done some research on Bernia and decided to hold off and go with Handiquilter Avante once I am able to sell My Simply Sixteen. No rush .
