I’m a Berni-nerd!!!
It’s true. There’s no other way to describe how I dorked out last night after I went to pick up my new Bernina and took it for a spin in the intro class. I am in LOVE. It’s there, in the back, waiting for me to pack up my old machine.
Out with the old, in with the new.
The things I am most excited about include decorative stitches (above) and the freeform quilting foot I just purchased (evidence below).
Don’t worry, my old curvy singer is going to California to a friend who works at a nonprofit for Senior Citizens. Hopefully lots of people will get to sew on her, she was (& still is) a good machine.
I’m a firm believer that you can do whatever you want with whatever you’ve got, no matter your level of machine. But I upgraded because I really wanted to be able to lower the feed dogs on my machine. Yep, that’s the #1 reason. No more turning the whole freaking quilt just to go in another direction. I also love how smooth and quiet this machine is. Oh, and I can sew into nothing (like one might do while chain piecing) and the bobbin doesn’t freak out.
Hooray!! And thank you Mommy!
