I pick up my sewing machine from the reparation last week however according to Cobie from Rouwendal (sewing machine center) I should not expect a lot. It is sewing but – as I was assured – it is not me but machine – which is just not for me, my needs.
While looking around the shop and especially looking at my dream Bernina 530 (I will buy it one day) Cobie asked me if I really need to have a new one. It has happened she just have a second-hand Bernina which would be perfect for me. She asked if I would like to try it on. My eyes started to shine … it was a 15 years old Bernina artista 170. What a difference! Hmmm… it was still expensive.
I had to sleep over – it is completely unexpected. I think issues with my current sewing machine directly that day have made my mind. No fancy holidays – but new (old) sewing machine.
Being for a weekend in Poland and having few busy days with meetings in the end I could pick up my BERNINA!
Yes! I am now a proud owner of BERNINA 🙂
Well, someone can say it is 15 years old machine but this Bernina is much more advanced than the Husqvarna I have bought almost 4 years ago. It is solid, it has real bobbing and it works quieter – and has touch screen and eco mode. It is such a difference! I remember all advises and comments after my sewing machine has broken for the first time. Bernina was mentioned very often as great and reliable sewing machine.
I am still discovering all possibilities and to try them I started to sew the Burda Retro top 134 which was already cut off.
