My BERNINA-versary!

I’ve had my BERNINA for a whole year now!  I can hardly believe it!  It’s my BERNINA-versary!


This is me at Material Girls in La Plata MD for one of my Ambassador visits. The machine is a B 540.

Some of the things I’m finding different with my BERNINA 750 QE from the machine I had before:

– I basically had to teach myself how to piece all over.  It’s not that different, but the 9mm feed dogs are much wider than I’m used to.

-I love how the machine doesn’t let me make silly mistakes.  The D range of feet for the 700 series have sensors in them that do not allow your machines to do stuff that the foot attached will not allow.  Like having a small hole for straight stitching, the foot sensor will not let you select a zig zag stitch.  Amazing.

-The knee lift.  OMG where has that been all my life.  My previous machine had one, but the BERNINA knee lift is so much better.

-The BSR (BERNINA Stitch Regulator) for free motion.  One of the things I have been “knocked” on my judging sheets for in the past is the evenness of my free motion stitches.  The BSR has revolutionized my stitching. I can’t ever go back.

I’m sure there’s more, as I learn to try out all the latest feet and stitches this machine can do.
