I have 2 Berninas, a 640 and a 740. I am soooo happy with the extra space from the needle to the right side of the machine on the 740...I just quilted a king sized quilt on it with no struggles.
There are a few different 1/4" feet, ask to see them to evaluate when you go to test drive. One thing that annoys me about Bernina is the cost of the feet. I find that I really only need a few of them because I don't do a lot of specialty sewing other than quilting.
Bernina does have price specials during the year, and it may be worthwhile for you to get on the local dealers mailing list to find out about those specials. I had been lusting after the 740 but the price scared me...then I found about a trade in sale, and they gave me a great price with my 1230 trade in, which needed several hundred dollars worth of new gears (heavy use for many years will do that....😄).

Hmmm...what would I change about my Berninas? Other than the price of the machines and the feet, nothing that I can identify.
Report back!
