I know that is not a huge %, but Bernina rarely marks anything down. We also bought the software, yikes, it was more than the machine! We also waited for a sale and got 20% the software. I think it usually retails at 1200.00. It only monograms, but I have no sewing ability, so it works for me.
It was a good deal- they had the package deal when I bought it- I don't think they even do that anymore...
I heard that the Bernina was one of the best! but I have never used one. It really bugs me how expensive the software is... I just paid $3500 for the software I got and thought I was getting Auto digitizing - I was wrong- it will be another $1000 for the upgrade!!!!!!!! I will get it- One day!
I have to embroider/ make bows for awhile before I can- But I will do it!
