Hi Kelley -
I have heard others say they love the Viking software. I had a Viking before I got my Pfaff and I loved that machine. But it wasn't embroidery.
Good to hear from all of my fellow quilters. What a great place to exchange information and ideas.
I, too, like the 9mm stitch which my Pfaff has, that Bernina 5 mm is just so tiny. If you read Donna's reply, you will understand the "dongle".
I love to do crazy quilts as well, I have two of them going, also a Christmas wreath with silks, lace, decorative stitches. I don't do handwork any more so the decorative stitches are wonderful.
Thanks for writing, Dot
Dot T: Maybe I could buy a used Bernina with the embroidery and sell my Pfaff, boo hoo. I like the 9mm decorative stitches on my Pfaff and was disappointed that my 440 only had 5 mm.
That is really interesting...my Bernina 200E has a 9mm foot and decorative stitches.
Donna, I don't know why Bernina only put the 5mm stitches on the 440QE, the decorative stitches are so small, it is hardly worth using them. And there are a lot of them. At least my Pfaff has a lot of the pretty stitches and they are the 9 mm. Sounds like you have the best of both.
But I do enjoy the BSR and that is the primary reason I got it. My hands can no longer do hand quilting so the free motion machine quilting with the BSR is so good, I don't have to struggle with free motion on the Pfaff.
Welcome Dot and Monica!
I have a Bernina 440 QE. I bought the embroidery module and NEVER used it. I want to see it. If you are interested. Please call me at 757-816-1211.
I have the embroidery unit, never used, I would like to sell.It is for the 440. I am going to upgrade and will have no use for it.
Let me know if you are still interested.
I have an embroidery module for my 440 QE machine and would be willing to sell it. I have only used it once and am no longer doing any embroidery work as I have gotten involved in other activities but still want to keep the sewing machine. I haven't tried to check around yet to see what they might sell for. If you would like, make me an offer and I will consider it.
