    Default Looking at a Bernina 440 QE.....

    I am considering purchasing a used Bernina 440QE. Wondering if any of you have any insight on this machine. Any info would be helpful.

    I believe that is the one my friend just got and she could not be happier!! It's how I ended up with the 830QE....don't go machine shopping with friends!

    I just returned from a retreat and I was fortunate to have one of the ladies bring her 440 for me to use. I used it for 6 days and it sews like a dream! I loved it. It does not have automatic threading and does not cut the thread, but it was easy to use. I found it difficult to use the needle threader and ended up threading the needle manually. That probably was because I have some arthritis and couldn't get my fingers to work well. The bobbin winder worked wonderfully. All in all, it was a pleasure to sew on it.
