Subject: So I saw the new Bernina 780 today :) Date: 7/12/12 8:37 PM

I got a glimpse!

Dang, it's pretty!

I had my daughter and grandbabe with me... so I only had two hours to mill around the whole show. I'll probably go back on Saturday by myself so I can really take time to look at machines more closely.

Oh - $9,000 show price.

It sure looks pretty in the photos!

Love the show price...coz it makes me feel better for spending half that on my new machine, lol!

How does the stainless steel hold up on the bed, does it get scratched up? I love how that looks, and it sure would be a great match to my home decor. A machine entirely in chrome...OMG I'd HAVE to have that!!! Brushed chrome on the upper areas where e Bernina is black, and polished chrome elsewhere...!!!

Lucky you! Did it look big?

In the photos it not only looks to be longer than the 580 but also taller and generally bigger all over. Like a 580 on growth hormones. Is this the case?

I'm surprised Bernina did not make this more affordable. The 730E was only around $6899. I'm sure it's a great machine, but if it's $9,000, I would skip it and buy the 830 for not that much more. Just my two cents.

I have a 9 year old 185 with the stainless steel arm and it still looks wonderful. Fabrics just glide over it. No scratches yet!

Yeah, Baby... it's BIG.

Kinda like the 580 in Incredible Hulk Mode.

I'm eager to see the 710 and 750 in person and check out the bobbin system and feed dogs.
