Hi, I am new to this group and am about to buy a new machine.. I am between the 380 and aurora 430.. I am going to also buy the 340 deco bernette for embroidery, so the embroidery module on the aurora is not a factor.. I mostly do clothing construction, and am really not that interested in quilting.. There is only $100 dollar difference between the machines.. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks, Pam

The auroras aren't my favorite model (mainly because of what a pain

EConPC can be), however, I'd still pick the 430 over the 380, since

there's only a minimal price difference, for the sole reason that their

warranty is much better.

I'd go with the 430 if for no other reason than it is a full size machine and it offers a little more versitility (just in case you should decide to upgrate to embroidery or BSR). It is a very good, sound machine. I haven't compared the two closely but generally speaking, you usually get a little more in button holes, extra embellishment stitching, etc as you move upwared.

I would pick the 430. It comes with the renowned bernina one piece

feet, and I dont think the 380 does, though I may be wrong about that.

It is a perfect machine for garment sewing. Not to much offered with

it, but everything you need. The other thing is out to the two which

one feels, sounds and looks the best to you, also what are the

different features and how do you see your self using them

I looked at these two machines a few months back. As I recall, I though the working space to the right of the needle on the 380 was much too small.

No presser foot pressure adjustment! I couldn.t live without this feature.

definitely the 430

you have the option of adding a BSR

BERNINA stitch regulator and you have

the option to add an embroidery unit at

a later date if you choose not to purchase

it at this time. The 430 has been in the

line for years and has proven itself

to be a good machine

To add to what others have said, go for the 430. You will appreciate having 6 buttonholes to choose from as opposed to 4 on the 380. Also 283 stitches as opposed to 115 on the 380. The 430 has 11 needle positions which I find useful in clothing construction.

Go to berninausa.com . . . then >>Products >>Sewing to find brochures which list the features of each machine.
