What makes the bernina 830LE an LE? other than it's a "limited edition"... whatever that means.

The fancy red face plate, the extra embroidery alphabet, the USB stick and CD of embroidery designs. I am sure I missed some other things as well. "Limited Edition" means that only 4,000 of them were made. When they are all sold, that's it!

Thats correct--there are over 1000 embroidery designs on the CD. When I got mine it also came with additional coupons including a $500 rebate. AND, you are able to attend a retreat in Chicago--there are two more being offered in December this year.

Pretty much what i thought, but wanted to make sure. I pick up Xena-le tomorrow ... how excited can one girl get...i've been playing with the simulator all evening. The retreat in chicago won't be happening if I have to go before the end of the year. Maybe they'll extend it to sometime in 2013. But that's not a freebie...have to pay way to get there, hotel, food, etc. They are just supplying the know-how. So, butterflies in my tummy, just hoping I'm making right decision. Love my old 830, so this should be a no-brainer. BTW, this site is just too darn addicting! Go to bed already!

They already extended to December, so I'm not certain they will extend again. The hotel/food is $299. Then there is travel cost too. But I thought the $299 was quite reasonable to cover hotel/food.

I hope you love your LE! I LOVE mine.

Have you joined any of the yahoo groups yet? There are several that are super helpful for 830 owners. Let me know if you need more info.

I can see the 3 of you will need to meet up in person and get to talk 830LE's to each other.
