    I've owned it almost 15 years now and for the first time really used it.

    My Bernina is in Olympia and the FW is here in Maine. I've been sewing a lot of projecta with it. Today I finished putting borders on a quilt I've been finishing for my new SIL.

    That little baby HUMS !! I never realised how sweet the sound is !! The Bernina isn't sweet and none of my machines over the years were either.

    I bought it way back when because a guild member had it for sale, but never appreciated it. -- Used it a couple times for classes but that wat it.

    Now I'm a huge fan. It will stay here in Cushing when I go back to Olympia this winter, but I will miss it. Wish I could be lucky enough to find one at a Sally or GW store or tag sale. -

    I have been tempted several times, but keep talking myself out of one. Just yesterday I came across one in excellent condition for $400. I felt that was too high just to use occasionally. I am spoiled with my modern machine and all of it auto this and that's!

    I love mine and use it more than my computerized Viking. The Viking is great for quilting, but for piecing, I prefer the featherweight.

    Just got mine out today to sew some heavy tote bag seams that my Brother wouldn't go through. I love mine, it will sew through anything you can get under the presser foot. I've sewed everything from my wedding dress to car upholstery.
    Glad you got your's out and are enjoying it.
