Wow. In a discussion with a fellow quilter, she mentioned that she uses a Bernina….and I was fascinated. I use a small Kenmore (made by Sears) that I bought about five years ago for about $350.00…and never thought twice about it. Yes, the needle threader no longer works and the bobbin winder is loose…occassionally some stitches skip and I have to clean out the lint that has accumulated, but it never occurred to me to think about a more ‘mature’ machine with more gadgets and whistles….
So, I went to the Bernina web site and was absolutely blown away…how in the world does a person make a decision about buying one of these machines? There are so many different versions….and they are also very expensive.
Take a look here:
I’d love to hear from some of you about what you use and why you chose what you did..
