Which used Bernina to buy 830, 830, newer?

bobbie46April 5, 2009

I am the original owner of a 40 year old 730. It has some problems and when we moved the feet and other accessories were mislaid. Rather than repair and replace I am considering buying one a little newer-maybe the 830 (made in the 70's), the 930 (1980's) or something else? I want to make baby dresses for my first grandchild. I once made coats, patterns, drapes but no more of that! I want a reliable machine for under $1000. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks everyone!
