Very fortunate to have purchased a new Bernina serger today on sale at the dealer.  Although I began looking at entry-level machines available at chain stores, I decided to learn from my past mistake of cheaping out, and went with a dealer brand and model. 

I bought the Bernina 1150 MDA on sale for less than $1K. 

Because I've read many reviews about sergers, and I saw that the difficulty of manual threading is a common complaint, I decided to try to thread it by glancing at the manual and the diagram on the fold-down door on the front of the machine.  I truly wanted to test how intuitive the threading was. 

I unpacked the machine, set it up, threaded it and SERGED in about 30 minutes.  I am thrilled!  I can't wait to learn how to fully use my new machine!   Cheesy

Just wondering how you like your new Bernina serger.  I have been reading everything on sergers, as I am in need of finding one for sewing fine fabrics(in particular silks), so I would appreciate any feedback.  How is it for threading?
Thanks
