I have a new love in my life.... My new Bernina 1008!
It got delivered late last week, and all long weekend i have been testing it out.... I am in love!
This isn't my first sewing machine, i have been 'trying' to sew on my little basic machine for quite sometime, and it has done its job.... but i really needed to start stepping up with the big guys, and get myself a new machine. I had been searching around for a while for a machine that was:
1 - Within my budget
2 - Would be easy to use, and just plain awesome
3- Last a long time, this is a big investment for me
4 - Not give me any crappy mechanical issues on a regular basis
And majority of all reviews i have read, this beauty was a clear winner!
And it is a total dream to use, it just does what it is meant to do - no fancy schmancy stuff on it that looks cool, and you promise yourself:
'Oh yeah that would be sooo awesome i will totally make something with that amazing button'
but never do.....
It is a total workhorse, built so solidly ... once i sat it down, it was staying put!
You just cant beat good quality.
I now have the most perfect button holes with the easy to use 6- step button hole, it is so easy to use! It also takes any fabric you give it and sews it perfectly each time, considering it doesn't have an adjustable presser foot pressure.... it so cool!
This machine also opens up a whole other world of presser feet, which i am about to go nuts on and buy them all! I have been looking around at the Bernina presser feet available and its like my version of heaven! I have already started talking.. no rambling.. about them to people... from the look on their faces... i think i turning into a bit of sewing geek!
You gals got any advice on some awesome presser feet? Do you own a Bernina 1008?What was your first machine,?! When did you find the/your perfect sewing machine?
I'm off to search the net for presser feet, and possibly have a mind explosion about all the possibilities!
