Well yesterday I broke down, and bought me a new sewing machine. I got a Bernina 350 "refurbished". Getting to know my new best friend, and loving it today. Free motion sewing on my little Brother sewing machine (which is TOTALLY Kaput) was "less than perfect", free motion on my new Bernina 350 good. I am by no means "an interemiated" or "good"at quilting sewer, but I am embracing the "learning curve", and will take up my local Quilt Shop's offer on new owner classes for my new to me Bernina.
