Saashka, Wow, I just purchased the Bernina 430.....it is brand new (no sewing, embroidery, or stand by time on the machine).
I am a little embarrassed about the number of machines I own, but confession is good for the soul, they say, so here goes:
A mechanical Singer, my DH bought me the year we were married (I am at my work week house and it is in the closet at home, and I can't remember the model). It works great, I just outgrew it....but our so. Borrows it from time to time so worth keeping.
Bernina 930 Record.....my workhorse that has just started to cause concern.
Pfaff 7570 with embroidery unit and only 25-30 hours on it.....nothing wrong with it, we just did not bond.
Singer SM vintage...sews well, also at the other house.....sentimental value also.
Hobby lock serger....(once again at the other house). Works well, so will keep it
Baby lock Evolution serger.....love it.....more bells and whistles than I will ever need.
Janome CPX1000 coverstitch.....how did I manage without it!
Another Janome CPX1000 coverstitch, and a Baby lock Imagine serger, both brand new also still in the boxes....my plan was to set up sewing rooms in both houses, to eliminate hauling machines back and forth as I now work out off both houses. But that plan has not evolved and will probably not happen.
AND, my new Bernina 430....one of the last, or so I am told, Bernina's stamped with Made in Switzerland on both the front and back. Plan was to replace the 930, but it will be hard to retire that machine..
