    I’m looking forward to reading what the “Sewlebrities” have to say about the new 780 machine! I’ve been going back and forth between the 830 and the new 780 or 750QE. The price point of the 830 makes me want to vomit, and the 7 series is still really hard to swallow. I’m mostly quilting these days, and my current machine (Artista 200E upgraded to 730E with BSR) has a maximum sewing field width of 5 5/8″ no matter which hoop I use. I like to quilt “in the hoop,” using my embroidery module to stitch out a perfect outline quilting design in the center of a block after I’ve layered, basted, and quilted in the ditch to anchor at the seam lines. Then I fill in with background quilting fill designs using my BSR for FMQ. So I would really, REALLY love to have more room under the harp to fit my quilts, a larger bobbin so I’m not constantly running out of thread, and the capability to stitch out an embroidery design that would fit a 10″ or 12″ block. According to the Bernina web site, the optional Jumbo hoop fits both the 830 machine AND the 780 and 750 machines, but the 7 series machines can’t go wider than 8 1/4″ max embroidery field and the 830 can stitch up to a 10 1/4″ wide embroidery design with the Jumbo hoop. But I’ve read about so many problems and glitches that early adopters of the 830s have struggled with, and there’s so much buzz now about the new bobbin design and stitch quality on the 7 series that I just don’t know which way to go. I wish they had a 7 series machine that could embroider the same width as the 830 — and I wish I’d win the lottery so I wouldn’t have to sell one of my kids to afford these machines.;-)
