I have to brag on my 1530 which was my mothers and she bought it new in 1992. She enjoyed garment sewing, quilting and craft sewing for 7 years before she passed away. I was lucky enough to have gotten all her sewing things that I didn't know what to do with. I stored them for a few years until I could face going through all of it. I hadn't taken the time to learn anything about the machine she was so proud of. She wanted me to, but I was always to busy working. Well I have to say over and over how sorry I was. The Bernina dealer who sold it to her took me under there wing and taught me all about that wonder 1530 Bernina which they called the work horse. I took a beginners quilt class from them and I have been sewing up a storm ever since. I did buy a 180 and loved it and now have a 200/730 and love it as well. But I still have the 1530 and I still sew on it. The machine will always stay in the family for memory sack and because it will keep on keeping on.

Thanks for letting me share my story. Some how it makes me feel proud.

Hi Patti. I too am the proud owner of a 1530. You don't hear alot about them and you hardly ever see one for sale. I agree it is a workhorse. My 1530 was my introduction to Bernina machines. I have owned them ever since. I also have a 180 (which I need to sell if I can finally get up the nerve to sell it) and a 730 as well as the 2500DCET serger. I promote Bernina wherever and whenever I can. My 1530 sewed all my childrens clothes and gifts for others. Just like you, I will never let it go unless I pass it down. Pam

sack and because it will keep on keeping on.

I've already told my dealer he can have my 1530 when they pry it out

of my cold dead hands

Me too!. My 1530 is my workhorse piecing and quilting machine and I will never let it.go.. My 200/730 is primarily for embroidery, and I love it too, but my 1530 is my favorite.sewing.machine ever - I use.for everything except embroidery.

It's great to hear there are a few of us out there. I'm sure it will last forever.
