Hello everyone,
I am a newbie to this site and it looks so great! I have the opportunity to buy a well used 630 from someone I know very well. I bought an 185E from her a few years ago and thought it would be my only Bernina. She is having health issues and is giving up her quilting/embroidery business. I am excited to upgrade to this machine. Opinions of the machine please.

Thanks,
Susan B.

How well used? What does she want for the entire set up?
I love my 630 for piecing. I have not sewn any clothing with it so far. I do not have the module for embroidery. Does a BSR come with it or not?

We need more information so we can help you make an informed decision. The 630 is a fantastic machine.

Oh, and welcome to PR. Check out the Bernina Love Thread too. Many of us hang out there.

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

She had a business and it does have many hours on it but she upgrades her machines regularly so she has the 830 which is her workhorse. She is religious about having her machines cleaned a serviced. It includes the embroidery module, all feet and the BSR for $1K. I have been so happy with my 185E from her and trust her that the machine is in great condition.

If it's in good shape and comes with everything.. that's a great deal!

I am thrilled with the price. I have read older reviews on the machine and get more and more excited. I will pick up the machine next week if everything checks out. Thanks

The 630E was my first Bernina and it's a wonderful machine. I sold mine a couple of months ago for $2450, but it didn't have a lot of hours on it.

I think that you will really like the 630. And what a deal! I just recently bought a 635 and I am loving it. This is actually my second 630/635. I sold my first one five years ago to buy a 730. I am so glad to have one again!

Great machine. Great price. You don't say what you'll use it for most, but that doesn't matter, as it does everything well. Enjoy!.

Go for it. That is a good price. I've had mine for almost 3 years and I love it. I mostly piece quilts and I use the embroidery module to make quilt labels. I don't use the BSR. I learned how to free motion quilt before getting the 630 and the BSR can't keep up with me. I have a long arm for quilting.
