Bonnie,

Have you checked the reviews on patternreview.com?  There are four reviews on there.  You may have to set up a user name and password to view the older reviews.  I think that you can see reviews newer than six months without setting up an account.

HI Bonnie,

I don't have a 790....but have a Bernina 630....never got the embroidery arm for it.  but did get and use the stitch regulator.....I have had this Bernina for quite a while and have used it mainly for piecing and I love using it for that....I was thinking about getting a newer one...but our Berina Dealer left the area and another one has not come....I would definitely consider Bernina as a potential new purchase.  I would however, check out this potential machine...these machines have a lot of computer cards and finding a good service person for them would be important.  Is this a pre-owned machine?  has it been recently serviced?  I would check things out..they are pricey...Bernina's can cost as much or more than a long-arm.....but I think are harder to service than our longarms….Lin

Thanks for all the info I did purchase a new Bernina 790 and really enjoying it. There is a local service for the machine so all is left is to sew.  I had an 830 but didn't like it as much as the 790.

Bonnie,

Glad you are enjoying it!  I really am sad that we don't have a local dealer anymore...it would be about a 2-3 hour drive for me one way to the nearest one...do-able....but....not convenient...I will keep on stitching on my 630 until she goes down...good thing I have a Lucey also for the quilting!!!!!!

HI all….

Just found out a new dealer is getting her Bernina's in today!  Yeah!  I am so happy!.  Visited the store yesterday and the two ladies were so friendly and helpful....looking forward to visiting their store again....now I don't have to travel 150 miles one way to a Bernina dealer.....Lin
