i hear there are on line mastery classes for the Bernina 830LE. i have not had any success in locating them. are they from Bernina? i did find one site with someone asking $50.00 per hour. still boxed, i was told to ditch my 830le. others love it. i decided to take my machine out of darkness(if i can find the classes on line) and give it a go. i am a TERRIBLE student, so sitting in a class does not work for me. i am better self taught(with a little help). plus, i do not want to lug the machine back & forth to class. i would even consider the mastery book, if they still make them like for the 180, and teach myself that way. i really just want to see if the machine should be kept or ditched. got it 12-12. Thanx.

This one, that one, and a bunch of other ones!

GothDom, Thank You Soooooo Much.
I spoke with my dealer today. They offer three, three hour classes to get you familiar with the machine. Once these are taken, I can take the Mastery Classes. I am a lousy student, but think it best if I bite the bullet and take the classes in person. They also said if I ever have a problem, they will sit down with me privately.

Most dealers will let you use the floor model machine instead of lugging in your own. The at home mastery classes are the best though because you can learn at your own speed. The if there is a question or problem go to the dealer for clarification or a hands on demo for whatever section of the class you don't understand. i wish Bernina would do a full Craftsy style class for each machine!!!! This would free up the dealers. the dealer would be there to answer questions. What a selling feature that would be!!! A lot of people are afraid of these whiz bang machines because there is a steep learning curve.

In addition to the mastery classes, have you found this site yet put together by Bernina Educator Amanda W? SUPER helpful!


Exnovodesign 830 videos and projects

If you scroll down and look near the bottom left on that page, there is a link to each of 7 Video Mastery classes for the 830 machines. Don't let the title saying Bernina Embroidery fool you. The classes cover sewing too!

Have FUN!!!
