How much do you love your sewing machine? My primary machine, a Bernina 430, has served me valiantly for many years. I bought it the year it was introduced (2008?) along with the add-on Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR). The BSR was the biggest selling point for me; I really wanted to decorate clothing with free motion raw edge collage but could not master it on my older Bernina 1230.
