  1. I have both a 730E and the new 830. When the 830 came out, I was so sure I would never love it like the 730, I kept it. Gladly I was wrong, my poor 730 sits lonely waiting for me to take her to a class. That was the other reason I kept her. When they first came out, I bought the 830 and had problems with her. New machine, new technology. My dealer was great, after trying to fix it and sending it back to Chicago, they ordered me a brand new 830.

Well anyway, my hubby helped me shop around to find the right machine and finally went with the Millennium. Over and over again, I kept seeing people who weren't happy with the smaller machines and then upgrading to a larger machine. I said if I was going to do it and spend all this money, I wanted the top of the line, so we did. I'm still learning since she was purchased right before Christ
  4. Thank you all for the very good explanations. Ok, I followed advice and went with the small one. Put my deposit down today at the Road Show in VA on a Millenium!! I feel I am so lucky to have Myrna only 45 mins away and she will be my dealer/trainer. Now her work will begin ;-) mine too.
  5. Hi Everyone, I am looking at the Millenium and would like to know what else to order for her. I do want to get the Bliss, but which size bobbins are you liking now? I see that you have a choice. Anything else I should think about before the order? Thanks, Sandy
