In need of a lottery win

To buy one of these only I can wait until they do a version without the bells and whistles.


  1. I think that Bernina is pricing themselves out of the market for alot of quilters.

  2. Wow!
    wow for the amazing looking machine ( I want one---only in my dreams :-)

    The other WOW is the price--------h-m-m-m- more than we paid for our first house!

    It would be interesting to know in these days of Credit crunching will anyone actually buy one in the UK ?

  3. You make such beautiful quilts, Sally, you don't need one of that machine !

  4. It sounds like a dream machine but that is all it can be - a dream!

  5. looks like I need a driving licence for one of these:-) but what a price!!! can think of a lot of other things to do with that amount of money.

  6. As Elma says ' more than we paid for our first house'! much more......£4000 was the price for that in the 60's!
    Lovely to dream though!

  7. I think the price is still below some of the other TOL machines---even if it is a scary price!!!
    It has so many well thought out features for quilting though!!!
    Guess we all need a lottery win!

  8. I just talked to my brother about the cost of some of these tol machines. He's a machinist by trade and his wife has done commercial sewing as well as hobby stuff - not a quilter. Anyway, he was so fascinated with the embroidery designing features and noted that it incorporated a lot of CAD features. Bingo! As soon as he mentioned CAD, and that these were really mini-computers (he likened more basic computerized machines to calculators), I figured out one of the reasons they are so expensive.

    Still, I think they are overpriced. It will be interesting to see how the present economy effects sales and their subsequent offerings and pricing. But as a jaded friend of mine said, they aren't really making these for people like us, but for the people who have money regardless of the economy. Sigh...
