What type of sewing you did/do with this machine?
While I didn't use my Berninas daily, I did use them regularly. I have done fashion sewing, home decor, embroidery, and lots of quilting. I sewed for my family, made purses, gifts, and have even done a little boat canvas repair. With just a year in to my new 830 I have only begun to learn all it can do. The machine is beyond amazing. The newest things I am learning are quilting in the embroidery hoop and embroidery applique.
What is your satisfaction level with this machine?
I have been completely satisfied with every Bernina I have owned. Berninas at any price point are excellent machines and the best value for your money. They exceed expectations. Customer service from the dealer network has also exceeded expectations.
- I came to Bernina after complete and total frustration with a Singer machine. I have been a customer for 37 years, across three states. The machines themselves and the dealer network are very satisfactory. Bernina education is also excellent--whether the dealer classes or berninausa.com No matter what your budget, you can find a new or used Bernina to suit your situation. They are the best value over time and last and last.
