    Guess what folks...I was out today picking up my daughter's hand-me-down Singer so she can take her first quilting class/camp next week. I pulled out my old machine and got it refurbished for her. While I was there, I sat down in front of a Bernina QEE440...and to make a long story short, it's coming home with me tomorrow or Saturday. It's "used" but comes with the store warranty, and I believe it only has about 40 hours on it.

    I have no idea how to embroider...I'm sure I'll get a tip here or there, right?? :lol:

    I'm so excited...now, any ideas how to tell hubby what I did??

    you can learn to embroider in no time. you can start with the justice scales and use it in your RRII center.

    just keep it in the trunk of your car for awhile, then take it out, when he says when did you get that just say "Oh that, I have had that awhile" :lol: :lol:

    I have had so much fun with mine. Machine embroidery is wonderful. Can't wait to start a new project. Be sure to get some lessons cause it is not that easy if you don't know what your doing. Didn't know stablization was so important but it will make or break a design. Have fun because I sure do.
