Bernina 930 needs doctor!

puleeeze, someone tell me the BEST repair person in my area, Eureka Springs, AR. to repair a 930 Bernina. i am unable to engage my special stitching choices....the lever moves but the only results i have are zig-zag and straight. i discovered this while attempting the special stitches with a "magic needle" for topstitching. i am new to this area, having just moved from Texas. i have authorized dealers close, within 1-2 hours and certainly do not mind going farther. i just prefer feedback from the experienced sewer.

Just a question: This is a machine you've had for a while and are familiar with, not a used one, recently purchased?

absolutely bought brand new by me. the dealers in fort worth sold me 2 different Bernina machines and that has been sooooooooo long ago, they are now retired!

So you do know the machine very well, and it sounds as though it really is busted (rare for a 930, isn't it? I've had mine for dog's ages, and it is still going strong).

Doggone it, if you lived in Southern California, I have a genius Bernina mechanic who could make yours behave like a pup again, but I don't have any connections out where you are.

Anyone else familiar with Bernina dealers in this area?
