    Pros: Knee lift and feet
    Cons: Not as reliable as I'd hoped

    Pros: I found the software relatively easy to use and could readily size patterns.
    Cons: Keeping the machine software upgraded turned out to be expensive--about $300 per upgrade.

    Summary: I purchased a Bernina Artista 180 with Artlink and CPS Software in 2000. Cost at the time was approximately $5000 . As of late 2005, I can no longer utilize designs that are currently being created in Artista v. 3 and Artista v.4 because my Artlink ... read more
