Must exert self control!!

Ok … I went to my local quilt shop this week to take advantage of their last sale day of 25 – 50% off Moda precuts and yardage.  Got Vintage Modern at 50% off, and some selections of Chateau Rogue, Mama Said Sew and a variety of mini charms to satisfy my cravings.  Then, since I was childless this day and in no rush to leave (like usual) … I took a first step towards a cliff…

For the first time, I asked to demo a new sewing machine.  My LQS, It’s A Stitch, is a dealer of Bernina machines.  I have been sewing on a basic Singer model for about 20 years.  I have only had it serviced once for cleaning, and that was about 3 years ago.  No problems.  And nothing fancy.

Oh… no ….  I need this new machine and I must find a way to afford it.  The Bernina 750 QE with optional Embroidery Module.

Even more comfortable quilting

  • Extra-Long Freearm
  • BERNINA Stich Regulator (BSR)
  • Color touch screen
  • BERNINA Dual Feed
  • BERNINA 9 Hook

 

I don’t even have to buy the embroidery module to start with, but I can add it on at any time later.  That is the long extension piece to the left side.  It’s almost an 11″ throat too!

I’ve been searching the internet for reviews on this machine and they all seem positive.  Now, it’s time to start my savings account 🙂  The shop has a special that you can trade in a non-Bernina machine and get 10% off … but I think I am too sentimentally attached to my Singer to do that.

I would be greatly interested if anyone who reads my blog has experience with this series of machines.

For those of you in the USA, or just a fan of ours, have a great 4th of July holiday tomorrow!

  1. I wish I could offer some advice on the Bernina. I like the look of that long arm, and I would love to have more room on my Janome. Like you I have my eye on my dream machine and need to start a savings account since I probably won’t ever sell any quilts. 😉
    I did find a review on this gal’s blog, but you may have already seen it. Her review is actually down in the comments: http://sewsewstephanie.blogspot.com/2012/10/my-bernina-750-qe-has-arrived.html

  2. I bought this machine about a month ago after being very disappointed with my Janome MC11000SE. I wish I had bought Bernina in the first place, this machine is fantastic, I cannot recommend it enough. I will never buy anything other than Bernina ever again. I love the BSR and the Dual Feed, and this baby handles anything you throw at it. Just wonderful!
