Took my class machine in the end of last week. They told me two weeks before I'd get it back, but they called yesterday and I picked it up today good as new! Paying for the service agreement ($99 for four years) was well worth it for adjustments, tune up and a deep cleaning! I know they charge well over that for just a cleaning!

Good deal. Always good to bit a bit upfront to save repair costs down the line. Happy sewing :)

You are so right about your service agreement being a great deal - took my Bernina in just for cleaning and it ran $79.

That is a great turn around!! I've not had to take my machine in (yet) but dread the day I do. I don't have a backup machine and I know it's gonna cost a pretty penny. Wish I would have gotten the one on my machine, but it would be expired by now anyways and up until recently I had barely used it.

I had never used it before either!!! It's nearly two years in now and I had never had it cleaned....I know, I know. However, it is only my class machine and it rarely gets used and I cleaned and oiled myself at home. Last class, the bobbin tension was out of whack though, so I figured I should use what I paid for!

Very good deal and you got it back sooner than it was supposed to be.

I took my Brother compal opus to the repairman because the slider that changes the stiches from choice A to choice B was stuck. He managed to free it and cleaned it for 85 that's $50.7 (and it took 3 days), which probably only what the machine is worth, but now my DD can use it. I used to make lots of clothes for her on it when she was little.

The trick is to mark your calendar so you remember to take it in every year for service. Taking good care of one's machine sure does make a difference in performance and how long the machine lasts, in my opinion.

Great deal and very quick!

Hmm...I'm sure a service here will cost me an arm and a leg...:(

@Sheena: Did you really mean 85 ($140) or is that a typo? If it's already this expensive in your neck of the woods, I might just have to buy a new machine then...:D

Oh, I can take it in every month if I wanted to! Just too lazy.......I may have sewn on it a dozen or two times in the 20 months I've had it. I don't take a lot of classes!

Yes, 85 comes out about $140-150. As I said on the 30 for 30 thread, quilting and sewing in general is not a cheap pastime here in the UK.

What they did to my machine, I think they charge $129 for. That is why I bought the service contract which covers everything for four years and cleanings as often as I want......all for $99!
