    I can't seem to wipe the huge smile off my face :D . Ok, here's the scoop, its a Bernina 200E, so it embroiders and sews. It has so many features that it might even cook and clean (although I haven't seen the attachments for that yet). It has all the cool features like auto threader, auto thread cutter..a nice large table surface to sew on, front loading bobbin and a thing I love--a knee pressure thingie that lifts the pressure foot. It also has the stitch regulator on it which I think I will like, but I have to get used to that. It has 3 hoop sizes...I don't know anything about embroidery....yet :D They say I can design, edit and save designs right on the machine. It has a USB stick with more designs and also a CD/ROM that I can either download designs from the web onto that and then plug it directly into the machine...so no funky fiddlin' around with design files. To tell ya' the truth, I don't even know what all it will do right now...I can't wait to take it slowly and work through all the things to do. I really can't wait to use that silly 1/4" foot! I'm about as excited about that as anything!!

    Patti!
    I am so happy for you! I can't wait to see the gorgeous things you will do with it!

    Was this from the fav store in Jackson?
    After the weather cools, I want to meet you in Jackson for lunch and quilt shop...
    This hot weather kicks my butt! 102 degrees here today, and hubby is cutting the grass!!!

    I do good to move from sofa to recliner, but I am cooking fresh butterbeans I just shelled.

    Congratulations, that's so exciting. You will have fun learning and exploring on that machine. I havn't had much time to play a whole lot with my embroidery unit. I have the B 630e

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!----and it's a Bernina? I'm drooling, can't you see? :mrgreen: I got the whole sales pitch on them one day in a Quilt Store. I think the best part is that they offer classes so you will actually know how to use all those cool little gadgets! :lol:
