If you have been reading my blog you know that I have wanted a Bernina sewing machine for a long time. I finally bought one at CREATE in August! Her name is Lola.
I got a great deal ($999 for a $1,499 machine) from the local Bernina store and the company rep at the retreat. Isn’t she is a beautiful machine? The first time I turned it on it made a terrible noise. I read the manual but couldn’t determine the problem. I contacted the store and after talking to 2 different people we finally figured it out (it was a switch up on the top by the bobbin winder).
My first training at the store isn’t until September 27, but I have been able to sew a few straight and squiggly lines already. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out the automatic threader, which is one of the features that I need most desperately! All in good time.
Buying Lola was a dream come true for me. Which of your dreams have come true lately?
