Disclaimer: The rules and guidelines for training are subject to change.
Damage Fee: If you do damage to the machine which causes a service tech to do repairs, there will be a fee of $50 per hour plus parts. 

Example:  If you hold a scissors over your quilt top and the machine needle strikes the scissors, you will break the needle. 
In addition, the needle bar will need to be readjusted in order to properly catch the bobbin thread.  In the meantime, the 
machine can no longer be used as it is awaiting repairs. 
Liability: You are responsible for any personal injury you incur while using the machine.  Your signature is required on a release form
before training can begin.
Cost/Fee: The retail cost of the Bernina machine is considerable.  This particular machine has all of the bells and whistles.  
This includes hydraulics, which comes in very handy for the tall and short quilters. 

The business cost of providing a longarm rental service is: 
- Fixed costs associated to the unit rental
- Utilities (e.g. water, air)
- Staff cost to provide you the training and best user experience as possible.  
- Liability insurance required for unforeseen events 
- Business property insurance coverage 

Fee of training:  $125
