Hi, this is my first post. I recently inherited from MDF a Bernina 600 Deco. I'm excited to learn how to use this machine. My friend just found the instruction book and gave it to me yesterday. I burned the midnight oil reading it. Since this will be my first experience in using an embroidery machine I have much to learn. I told my DH if anyone is looking for me he will know where I'll be. I need to get some thread, stabilizer, etc. though. Until I can do that I plan to familiarize myself with the different functions of the machine. I don't know how old the machine is but my friend was using it just prior to gifting it to me. I spent the day with her yesterday, helping her organize her sewing room. She has 4 machines and many, many discs for each one. I organized all the discs for each machine and was in hog heaven looking at all the different patterns.
