Husqvarna Sapphire 830: Does anyone own this machine?
I decided to stop by Joann Fabrics and check out the Viking sewing machines tonight. I do a little quilting, but no embroidery and don't want something that can do *everything* except cut out the pattern...the saleslady showed me one of these and I liked it, but don't want to necessarily buy the first machine I see. I want something a little higher end (it runs for $999 on sale - ouch!) but I sew quite a bit and need something that will last a long time.
Just wondered if anyone else had this machine or knew of its reputation. Of course, compared to what I'm used to, it can do a lot more - but is more expensive and so are the accessories. And I wondered how much maintenance was required with a computerized model?
