Bernina 1230 Sewing Machine

Original Bernina 1230 Sewing Machine

This Bernina Model 1230 is in beautiful condition!  

Just returned from being repaired.  A faulty circuit board preventing the machine from powering on was replaced with a new one and I just picked her up this past Friday 4/05/2013 from QUILTER'S CHOICE, a certified Bernina repair facility in Jupiter Florida. The repair cost me $220 + tax and now the machine is ready to serve it's new owner for many years.

Machine is sewing beautifully!  Machine has been well loved and shows only very minor signs of use, but impeccable for a machine of its age!  All features and functions work. If you are looking for a workhorse this is it!  Great machine for garment construction, quilting and crafting!  

Machine is all metal inside with metal moving parts. A true marvel of swiss engineering! This model is also considered a "collector's item" by those in the know. It is such a joy to use, that you feel it is an extension of yourself that will last forever!!!
