My trusty old sewing machine died on Monday. It was a sad, sad day. I learned to sew on this machine when I was 9 or so. During summer break in high school on the nights my friends didn't really have anything going on, it was just me, the sewing machine and Mr. Darcy, ohhh Mr. Darcy. Then I got married and my mom got a new sewing machine. I'm not sure if she really wanted a new one or if she did it just so I could have her old one, but either way it was really nice of her to pass this one off to me. It would be interesting to see how many hours I have put on that thing. The past three years or so the stitch quality has really gone downhill just due to the amount of wear and tear. It also developed a short in the power cord. Justin kept fixing it somehow with Gorilla glue and as long as it didn't get bumped it was just fine. Well, on Monday I went to turn it on and nothing happened, it had shorted it's last short. I have been reaserching sewing machines over the past year and have found that Berninas' seem to be the best quality machine out there. Lucky for me, Bernina just opened a store in St. George.
I am the proud owner of a new Bernina. And let me just say, "It's stinkin' awesome!" I'm soo happy I'm going to cry! I still have a lot to learn on it, like the knee-lifter and button-holer, but I'm soo excited! I'm soo glad I have a husband who understands that a good sewing machine is a NEED. I can't wait to get going on my projects.
(Hello pretty feet all lined up in your pretty accessory case.)
Unfortunatly it didn't come with a ruffler foot and a walking foot, but that's ok, I know what to ask for for my birthday and Christmas. :-)
