  1. I wish I'd done more research before buying my Big Bernina 830. It's a nightmare. Every problem imaginable and at twice the cost of anything else!

  8. I love my new Pfaff Ambition. I wasn't sure about Pfaff machine until I got mine and really started sewing on it. Now I can't imagine sewing on anything else.
