I know the Passport is much cheaper than the 350 (is there a 330?). Do the Berninas have more capability than the Passport? Just curious.

There is a Bernina 330. I have owned one and now I own a Passport. The Bernina has better power, vertical bobbin, is heavier but less stitches and is 5.5mm machine--no presser foot pressure. The Passport is a excellent lighter travel machine and more stitches, presser foot pressure, 7mm and stitches really well. When I bought the Bernina 330 I paid 899 and paid 550 for the Passport. I debated for too many weeks over to get a Dragonfly 350 SE or Passport but the price was the thing that made difference. The 350 SE went up to 1599 so over $1050 difference. I already own other Berninas so went for the Pfaff which is actually my first one.
