Bernina 1530


Recommended Posts

I have one too. I bought a 440 quilter's addition about 5 years ago. I was going to sell my 1530, but I just can't seem to part with her! I just don't think ANY other machine does applique like the 1530!! Even after 5 years of using my "new" machine, I still don't feel especially comfortable ( or just " at home" )with it ! I just don't think any machine I've ever had can stack up to my 1530! Just check out pricing and maybe check with a Bernina dealer to get a good idea for your pricing. One of my best friends has a Bernia shop and she says that the 1530 is a highly wanted machine. You can probably get some good $ for her! (If you can part with her!);) linda

Hi Linda,

I know how you feel about your 1530! It was my first Bernina and I do love it. I'm not sure if I can stand to part with her. I've just been kicking the idea around. I'm doing lots of spring cleaning and am trying to really clean things out. I don't use this machine all the time so I was thinking maybe it's time to let someone else enjoy her. I will check with my Bernina dealer to see about the asking price.

I know what you mean about spring cleaning! I just sold my serger a month or so ago. I just didn't use it! I don't do that kind of sewing anymore. I'm into quilting now! :D Do you have another domestic sewing machine? What kind do you have if so?

Hi Linda and Carol, I am in the same boat as you two. Thinking about spring cleaning. I am now toying with the idea of selling my 2 featherweights and featherweight tables, 2 of my 301 A Singer, 730 Bernina and 1473 Pfaff!! I am going to downsize. Making room for my new Freedom. Think I will get some prices for these and put this money on my Freedom.

Linda and Irene,

I also have a Bernina 200 and Pfaff. The Pfaff is my favorite for piecing. The Bernina I use for everything else. I have been going through the whole house cleaning things out. It is amazing how much stuff one accumulates over the years. Yikes! I also have a featherweight and a Brother 200 pe (the Snoopy embroidery machine) that I am considering selling. The pe 200 has lots of sentimental value. My husband surprised me with it years ago! Irene good luck with the sale of your Lenni. I bet you will really enjoy that new Freedom. I'll be curious to see what you think of it as compared to the lenni. I have a Liberty which I love for the ease of movement. Would love someday to have the Bliss rails. I keep toying with the idea of upgrading to the Mili or Freedom, but just don't have the funds right now.( I have thought about selling the Liberty, as money is tight right now.) Also not sure if I would like it as much as my Liberty. Can't wait to see what you think. Hope yours arrives quickly. I bet you are chomping at the bit to get going with it!

Carol
