This week my sweet husband bought me a new sewing machine, a Bernina 430. I have been sewing with Bernina for 30 yr. with a used 830 ( which my daughter has now) and then a used 930 ( I will save it for youngest daughter )
My first sewing machine was a Sears Kenmore with zig zag, paid $58.00 in a cabinet in 1968. After having the 2 used Bernina's this is my first brand new Bernina.
I can hardly believe how effortless free motion quilting is with the needle down function. I will receive free guide classes to explore all the wonderful things to learn about the 430. I did not get the embroidery package at this time to keep cost down. Who knows I may add it someday.
Right now I am amazed by the needle threader, thread cutters and auto bobbin winder. I am so grateful that Dale realizes how much this means to me, he will wait to purchase new golf clubs at a later date.
Many of you sew on updated machines all the time, I feel like my 930 is a relic!!!
Thank you to my local Bernina dealers, who are always a joy to work with and learn about my new computer sewing machine.
