What I'm not buying this weekend

The unique artist: the Bernina 730 Sewing machine

The artista 730 is a true sewing, quilting and embroidery artist with absolute top-level functions and features. (gee, can it make me a latte?)

Add the optional embroidery module to make this extraordinary sewing computer a fully-fledged embroidery system. (embroider what? My initials on everything I own?) The patented BERNINA Stitch Regulator (BSR) (now I do really need this when quilting) automatically ensures equal stitch lengths when sewing and quilting at variable speeds – opening a new world of creativity.
Sit down at the artista 730E and your imagination will find its wings…
(until it’s time to start dinner, that is.)

Sewing? Quilting? Embroidery? This is the best of the best. The finest of sewing and embroidery systems, the artista 730E has every feature you can imagine (yeah? Try me) to turn your ideas into projects that make you proud.

Only the artista 730E has a Microsoft® Windows® Powered operating system (oh boy, that spells trouble right there!). So, at the touch of a finger to the big, bright centrally located color screen (after nights of staying up with sick children, or maybe too much wine), you can get on-screen help and graphic tutorials (how graphic? PG-13 or R?). You can import and export embroidery designs and access the myartista portal, a website exclusively for artista 730E and 200E owners (where they will try to sell me more accessories, I’m sure). And that's not all… (but wait! There’s more!)

Only the artista 730E comes with the revolutionary, patented* (oh, I’m so impressed) Bernina Stitch Regulator. It automatically regulates straight and zigzag stitches at variable lengths, so you create consistent free-motion stitching with complete confidence. (US Patent 6,883,446)

Virtually saved: $7999 (list price) and untold $$$ on accessories.

Viridian, That is the most amazing thing I've ever seen! And with a built in DVR of PG-13 and R movies. But of course the last sewing machine I every used was my mother's in the late 70s. The price tag almost made me fall out of my chair... and I have a pretty high tolerance for price (in print, anyway :) Is the embroidery system not in that price? If not, you virtually saved even more! Excellent! Thank you so much for playing with me! (my captcha is "nonogran"... interesting)

the screen on the sewing machine is not a DVR, but the 'graphic tutorial' suddenly struck me as so funny. Actually, I had to search for the list price. The Bernina web page lists a telephone # for further information. As Mom says, "if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it."
my machine at the repairman's is a 20 year old Kenmore.

Wow! Think of what all you can do with the money you saved! LOL!

The 830 is more expensive. However, the lower end Berninas (NOT the Bernette) like the 153, 155, 430, 440 are great machines. If I loaned you the 440 and you used the needle down on that puppy, plus the knee lift lever and the BSR, I think you'd be sold. :)
