Or for 2 grand more I could buy an economy car.. Would save a lot of money in gasoline.. Then I could take the money I saved in gasoline.. and buy another machine with it.. one about half the price of the l2000.. then I could take the money I saved by buying a cheaper machine.. and go on a truly fabulous vacation.. and not worry about how to pay for a 9000 machine.. sigh..

Skae. I have lots of machines with more stitches than that..

The magnifying glass is nice.. Now I could buy that machine for that feature for 9 grand.. or I could go to Walgreens.. buy a magnifying glass for two bucks.. and with the 8997 dollars I saved.. I could buy a complete designer wardrobe and not worry about sewing at all...

Who can or will pay that much for a home sewer? !
Tis a pretty sm but the price tag..... YIKES!

Maybe it is meant for a home business sewing ??? Then you could count a business expense then. Just wondering about that.

Two years ago I worked, for 6 months, at a quilt shop that sold Berninas and their top of the line was around $9000. Women were buying them. The store sold about one a week. Not so sure they can sell that many in this economy.

If I had that $$$$ available I would get a 15 needle embroidery machine. My combo machine convinced me that I really prefer separate machines.

I haven't seen the new Janome yet but am sure that it is awesome. And, as to the price and who would buy it -- think of 'boys toys' and their cost (bass boats, golfing vacations, restoring old cars, etc.). As long as you're not spending the rent/food money on sewing machines, what does it really matter? If it suits you and doesn't break the bank ...

TGM...I'm so with you..

$9000...ouch. That cost MORE than putting a new roof on my house (which is what I'm paying for right now).

My limit on any machine is $1000...even that's probably too much...but I have spent that and probably will again (if my roof ever gets paid for :).

Hi Miss Fairchild,

I'm one of those people who paid that much for a machine--I bought the Bernina 830LE in August. I've sewn since I was a child and have sewn professionally off and on since college. I earn my living testing software, and when I was recently laid off, was given a generous severance. I accepted a new job in less than 2 weeks, so my husband suggested I put my "found" money towards my dream machine. I also took advantage of the 36 month interest free financing.
We make good money, but are by no means rich. We don't have kids, don't drive expensive cars or eat out at fancy restaurants. Sewing is my passion, and it is where I put my spare time and money.
