I am a novice sewer....So far, I have sewn 2 skirts and 1 dress.. LOL... My older sister has banned me from her Bernina. So, I am out to buy a used machine from one of our local retailers... The sales person offered me a Bernette Model 715 for 85.00... She said it was very old, but, serviced and ran well. I have seen a few of these models online selling for twice their price... They are a reputable dealer... I test drove it and it was a bit too loud... The price tag was dated 5 months ago... So, its been sitting for a while... Do you guys think I should keep on looking

$85 for any basic machine that is covered by a dealer warranty and in good condition is a fair price.
Perhaps it is loud compared to your sisters machine? You might test other brands in that price range (up to $150) to gain a better perspective.

sewing brings joy and meaning to my life...
