Discontinued, but many still available new at dealers.

LOVE mine!

It's the most fully-featured 5.5mm stitch width (CB hook) machine Bernina ever made, if I'm not mistaken. None of the current models with 5.5mm stitch width are capable of machine embroidery.

I got mine used and I'm SO GLAD I've got one. Just a dream to sew on. Powerful, precise, smooth, and easy. Intuitive to learn.

There's one on SewItsForSale right now. Too bad you missed one recently sold by a longtime PR member. I got mine on PR, so my only worry was the shipping gremlins, but mine arrived in perfect condition.

I think $2500 used and about $3400 new with warranty (without embroidery) are the average of prices I'm seeing now.

Good luck, I hope you end up with one, they're fabulous!

Best machine purchase I ever made. Love it. Sews perfect each and every time. Great embroidery as well!

Love mine, too. The 630 WAS on the website around Christmas time. Hubby got me one for Christmas...630E gently used (less than a month, I got a new machine warranty) with rolling carrier case for $3,000.00. I am currently taking classes on it, used it to make a bed runner quilt, which turned out beautifully. I take my embroidery class on Monday.

Is anyone aware of online learning resources for the Bernina 630?

I would like to know the answer to that question, too. I didn't find anything on the Bernina website, and I didn't find any you tubes on the 630, either.

I purchased a 'New in the Box' Bernina 635 on eBay from a pawn shop. I got a great deal at $1800 (no embroidery). I am enjoying the machine and using the manual, but I am sure the machine does so much more than I have experienced so far.
