You could save getting the 950 under the Tacsew industrial label rather than the Bernina label. They are both made by Bernina in the same factory with the same specifications, accessories and are exactly the same other than the label. The Bernina goes thru home sewing machine dealers and the Tacsew goes thru industrial dealers. You can only use the Bernina ruffler with low shank short adaptor on the Bernina Tacsew 950 which will not take industrial high shank attachments. You cannot run it full speed with this attachement. You can use other generic low shank feet on the Bernina Tacsew 950 if you already have or purchase the Bernina regular low shank adaptor, which is a little longer than the ruffler adaptor.
Julie Benac,

I just wanted to write to you all to thank you so much for the wonderful service and products you have! I purchased the Bernina 950 Industrial from you back in December, and I would've written much sooner, but my business has absolutely BOOMED since buying this machine! I haven't had time for anything but making money! But I wanted to thank your support staff so much for all their help over the phone, telling us how to set the machine up and get the belt on. I don't know what we would've done without them. And there is no need for anyone to feel skittish about buying from AllBrands over the Internet.
