BERNINA SEWING MACHINES
I mention in my entry to the "Stitch This" challenge (called Count Your Blessings) that it was sewn with my 24-year-old Bernina 930.
purchased my very first sewing machine when I was 17 using my own money
I had earned from picking strawberries and beans in Washington
(starting at age 10) and then working as a busgirl in Alameda. I had
worked hard and my parents encouraged me to buy a sewing machine since
I was always sewing when not working. Sure, I went to high school
parties, but sewing my first quilt took priority also.
when my first child, Daniel, was born, my mother-in-law encouraged me
to buy a new machine because I would soon be busy making baby clothes
and accessories for the crib. She insisted that I buy the Bernina 930.
Price-wise this was out of my budget. But, I trusted her when she said
it wouid last forever.
was right. Now, 24 years later, my Bernina 930 is great. Every time I
take it to a quilt retreat or class ladies come up and admire it. I had
no idea it was such a jewel.
So, whenever a friend asks what kind of machine to buy, I always tell them Bernina.
I am hoping to get enough votes to win the the Bernina Aurora 440QE in the "Stitch This"
contest. It has a special draw for me as I am transitioning into a new
phase of life. Daniel is getting married and I am about to make his new
bride a wedding quilt. Someday, I will also make little baby clothes
for them, hopefully with a new machine.
If you've seen my entry "Count Your Blessings - Lori Wisheropp" you'll understand the love and reasoning behind the slogan on the quilt. I truly have been blessed.
