Can anyone tell me a good price for a used Bernina 1200da serger that was only used once by a relative? I like Bernina but the price is higher then a Pfaff. Don't know what to do.
I could really use some advice . A price range would be helpful. All accessories are there. Thanks.

I was thinking of selling mine and was told by my dealer, based on the book value, that $450 would be reasonable.

They have book values for sewing machines?

I remember there used to be one but the publisher went out of business. Hadn't heard of it in years. Who publishes it and how is value determined?
I would look at completed auctions on ebay to get a better idea, that shows what people are willing to pay. A dealer's going to lowball it so they can resell at profit.

My dealer was selling one last year, serviced and with a small warranty, for $499.

Have you checked eBay, to see if any are for sale and what they're going for?
