I don't have one of these so just bumping the thread to see if anyone else knows. Do you see anyway to open it to take it out?

Once when in the Bernina dealership I saw them unscrew the casing off the machine to retrieve a like item. You might see if you can do the same. . If not .. I am sure it won't be much of a charge for a tech to see to that. Good luck

Don't know what it looks like... but you can't possibly turn it over and shake it out the same way it came in, can you?

Thanks for a quick response. I think I am going to take it in. I am afraid to take my machine apart from the bottom. In 3 years of owning my machine nothing has happened to it tell now. I am glad its a penny in the vent instead of something major. Thanks again for suggestions.

Call ahead and ask if you can watch. It should not be difficult seeing this is part of routine service by their tech.
