Is this a good price for Bernina 440QE?
I’ve visited the Pfaff and Bernina dealers now. I can’t find a Viking dealer around, they went out of business. I haven’t checked out Janome yet, I will do that. I really like the support system Bernina offers, however. The BSR blew me away, I was free motion quilting like I’d been doing it my whole life (that was my first time)! The Pfaff dealer will only give me three free classes and frankly, as a novice quilter and since I’m used to my ancient mechanical machine, I don’t think that’s enough. Besides, the Bernina gal is very sweet and a friend of mine has had a wonderful experience with her. Soooooo, she has available a demo machine, 440 QE, which is brand new but will be used for two days at a quilting class at a local quilt fair, along with a bunch of other Berninas. It’ll then get a check over to make sure it’s okay, and be available for me to take home. $2399. including quilting foot (BSR), walking, patchwork, and applique feet. What do you think of that price? Can I offer lower, do you think??? This is my first really nice machine ever, so it’s a process I’m not familiar with. I’d love some of your advice, you’ve all been so helpful to me!
