i'm wondering if anybody out there has a bernina 350 special edition machine. i have one on order, but i keep finding conflicting information on bernina's site about it (example: one place says FHS is optional, one place says included). the dealer doesn't have one, so it seems like it is anybody's guess.

i'm trying to find out if it does have a darning program. the 350 PE does, but the info on bernina's site makes it seem like the 350 SE doesn't. it would also be great to know if there is anything else different than the PE other than that the SE has full shank feet (per bernina at sew expo this past weekend). i didn't know about the darning program until after i got home. i don't really do darning, but it makes me wonder what other information is wrong. it seems like it should probably be identical to the PE with the exception of the full shank vs snap on feet.

thanks. :)

The 350 SE machine comes with the FHS, full shank presser feet and it comes with a walking foot. My understanding is everything under the hood is the same as the regular 350 the only physical difference is the face plate.

My understanding is the same as Renee's. I do not need this machine, no way no how. But my dealer has them for an awesome price so I am pretty sure I am going to pick up the postcard one when I pick up my 780. I am in love with this machine! And the fact it comes with the free hand system and a walking foot is awesome!

How much? My dealer said they were $200 more than the regular 350. She doesn't have them and would have to order one. Are they still available for order? Just asking. You know I can't help it.

Nope, not available for order. US dealers had to pre-order them back in October, and they are now all sold out.

The Bernina Canada rep tried to get one for me, but Bernina USA had none left, totally sold out. *sob*

my dealer said they had only one of each in their queue or whatever, so it seemed like that would be all they could get their hands on. doesn't hurt to call and ask though!

You girls are killing me. I told the dealer to take my name off the 350 SE but I can't stop thinking about it. Uggg

I like the pink one, *except* that exaggerated silhouette on the upper left.
