purchasing a new sewing machine
I purchased my first Bernina 830 30 yrs. ago, it’s still working but treated myself to 170E (embroidery) Bernina right before my first grandchild came. I sew for others as well as family so I’ve not taken the time to really get into the embroidery. I do lots of monogramming and names as well as some other stuff. The embroidery “cards” are expensive and learning all the ins & outs of embroidery take time that I don’t have so you might consider all that. I recently purchased another 830 because my 2 7y/o granddaughters are learning to sew and I want them to have a good machine to sew on–they just don’t know they’ll get it yet. I set the machine on the child’s table so she is comfortable. I don’t think you’ll ever regret the Bernina.
