My New Love

What is this?My new baby, my bernina.

Isn't she pretty?

I don't know how to use it, but it has made it out of the box. I am excited to play. Three classes are included with the purchase, but it will be a few weeks.

My last machine was purchased in 1999 for $120, very basic. I was ready for an upgrade. I tried out a few different brands at the dealer, and I just didn't know how lovely sewing machines could be. I loved them all, but was excited about having the Bernina stitch regulator that comes with this machine. I tried showing Allen the foot and telling him what it does. He just isn't any fun when it comes to sewing stuff. So, I've turned to the internet with my excitement.

My sister Gayle will be pleased with your Bernina purchase. She swears by them and is a certified instructor and fixer (I don't know the official term...mechanic maybe?).

If you need any project ideas, I would really like an apron. :) Or maybe an improv quilt;)

Glad you shared your excitement with us! Enjoy making my gifts. :)

Um...if I pay for your new camera, will you fly to Arkansas and give me sewing lessons? I would need a guarantee that my stuff is going to turn out looking as beautiful as yours. :)

I'm excited for you!...but so, so horrified about the camera. I'm so sorry.
