Your great-grandma’s sewing machine.
Remember when you had to use this sewing machine? The tension was never right. Not to mention that the Civil War was raging and the price of cotton was out of sight! I am so happy those days are over.
Today we have sweet machines like my Bernina 750QE. Here you see it stitching away on a new piece for Radical Elements. Radical Elements is a SAQA exhibit that premiers next year and my Bernina 750 QE is working hard to make me look good for the show. It’s a secret so I can’t show you what I’m really making. But there will be a journal that travels with the quilts that explains the whole process. You can read all about it at the premier in the Washington DC area in May, 2014.
My lovely Bernina 750QE.
Did you know that Bernina has a blog? It is called We All Sew. And today I’ll be featured on the blog. Cause, as you know, I am a new Bernina 750QE fan. Check out We All Sew and you’ll discover why I love my sewing machine.
Look what we have here. It’s my Bernina 750 QE!
And here we have Jan who gave me a lesson on the Bernina 750 QE. We covered all bells and whistles plus the thingamajigs and whatchamacallits. She patiently guided me through the intuitive menus, encouraged me to push a few buttons, and answered all of my questions knowledgeably. After an hour, I was giddy with delight. Come to find out the machine is smarter than me!
Thanks to my friendly Bernina dealer, Stitching on State in Hampshire IL, where Jan works. It’s a really a lovely shop. And this is one sweet machine!
