I absolutely LOVE my 240.it is my goto machine for many things.I also have 730, which I also love but it takes a few minutes to startup and sometimes you need to sew just an inch or two,now! Both machines use the same feet,big plus.240 was trade in at another Dealer,not Bernina.240is smaller and weighs less than 730.no embroidery,just sews.Good selection of stitches. It is discontinued but I do see them on eBay.
I think the 3 series are similar but more expensive.Amanda Whitlach mentioned she loved a 3 series she was working with.
If you have a Bernina I would stick with that brand.interchangeable feet,foot pedal and accessories big plus.
> Any recommendations on a good second machine that is not too costly?
