I've had my 200 for 11 years. It was upgraded to 730 without BSR. It's starting to give me fits! I'm considering the 580. Few questions:1) Will all the mega and large/medium hoops I have for 200 fit the 580?2) Will the coded feet I have for 200 work with 580?3) What features on my 200 will I lose by going with 580? (directional sewing?)4) What features (besidesBSR) would I gain by going with 580?Thanks for all your help/suggestion!

I've had my 200 for 11 years. It was upgraded to 730 without BSR. It's starting to give me fits! I'm considering the 580. Few questions: 1) Will all the mega and large/medium hoops I have for 200 fit the 580?Yes but the embroidery module probably won't2) Will the coded feet I have for 200 work with 580?Are the numbers on the feet red or black?. The red will fit3) What features on my 200 will I lose by going with 580? (directional sewing?)You would definitely loose directional sewing.. I don't know what else.4) What features (besidesBSR) would I gain by going with 580The lighting and screen are much brighter and easy to read.. There is an automatic basting box you can use.. I am not sure what else.Here are my thoughts, your machine is way out of date and has to potential of costing more and more to repair.. Some parts like boards may no longer be available.. I would hesitate to spend a lot to repair it.. .I have a debate about my 640.. It runs fine right now.. But I want to be sure to trade it in before it starts having problems and loses all of its trade in value.If you live near enough to Pennsylvania,. Hinkletown Sewing Machines has a lot of demo 580's they are selling.. Every year they replace all of their class rooms machines.. I don't know what they are asking for them and if they include the BSR or embroidery module... I suspect they do, but I don't know.. They are fully serviced and in the past had a new warrantees..

Thanks for your input! I'm glad my red numbered feet would fit the 580.Sorry I don't live near PA. I was browsing and found in Files a document comparing the 580 with the 730. This gives me lots to think about.I have an extra bobbin case for my 200. With both the 200 and 580 being a rotary hook system, does anyone know if the bobbin cases are interchangeable? I understand my 200 straight stitch plate would not fit a 580.Again, appreciate your help!
