NeW PLaYMaTe

In October... yes you read it correctly... OcToBeR... I purchased a brand new sewing machine... a Bernina 780... while I was on a weekend sewing retreat. Now since then, it has sat in a spare bedroom upstairs... patiently waiting until I had time to play with her. Well today was the day... out of the box she emerged... ready to get to work.
I set her up... threaded her... turned her on... & away we went. She sews beautifully... does the tiniest of blanket stitch I could imagine... & the quilting...well lets just say I'm in HeAVeN...
Guess where I'll be over the holidays... & with every minute I can be in front of her... yep, you guessed correctly.... I'll be GoNe STiTcHiN... in THE CUBBYHOLE.... yeah!

That is fantastic news about your sewing machine. I am tossing up about getting a new machine-- but I think the Berninas are out of the price range for me. I am not a great machine person. Thinking of getting a Janome which has more features than what my basic one has. Anyway, Happy sewing. Also Happy Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for including me in the birthday club and for hosting Fri night sewing. Best wishes for 2016.
