My husband let me pick out my Christmas present this year…..and I have been eyeing a new Bernina….just didn’t know exactly which one. The one I have been using I bought 21 years ago. I hate to part with it…but it has gone rouge. It just randomly jumps out of the mode it is in, stitch changes….sometimes it even jumps into a zig zag. With that said, I did just finish up a bunch of isolette quilts and it sewed beautifully.
BUT now I am home and using my new machine….love it!! Auroura 430. It has a few bells and whistles…but mostly not. I just want to piece and quilt….so wasn’t looking for any embroidery features or fancy stitiches even. My friends have those fancy embroidery machines and do beautiful work….me- I buy embroidered towels or shirts. LESS STRESS THAT WAY. (sometimes I even get one as a gift -thanks Ellen (she made me a beautiful towel last year).
I don’t even have to wait till Christmas to use my new toy. Wow….win win there. (Plus my husband is not stressing over what to get me).
Hope you all get some Christmas presents that make you happy too!
