    You could always use a blanket for the batting if you have one and sheets for the backing .
    May you always have Love to Share , Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!

    Tote bags or re-usable grocery bags are always good to have (and make great gifts, too). A summer quilt would be good, too (no batting); you could make a "throw" or lap-sized one, for the sofa/couch.

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    you will find a machine that will fit you. as i said before i loved my Bernina 830 record which is still in use after sewing clothes for 8 persons and the wedding outfits for 3 weddings. however i did have my feet etc because i bought a store display model. recently i found an attachment for it that acts as a serger, trimming the edges and overcasting. i like the machine and though repair is high, i only had it tuned up 3x in 30 plus years.

    Hi....so you went for a Bernina in the end....I hope you really like it....and it sounds like you have a really decent dealer which is also really important.
    If I was looking at doing a fun quilting project...I would probably recommend going onto You Tube and checking out the tutorials from the Missourri quilt company...
    Hopefully this link will take you to the page that shows all the videos available
    They have so many fun and inexpensive ideas, that would really get you used to using your machine in no time
    Love to see what you make.

    So glad you took the machine back to the dealer and she made things right for you. She's doing a good job (although she could have done better--those items you "found" for the machine should have gone with you and the machine in the first place, imho). But all's well that ends well. Have fun with your new machine!

    Congratulations on your purchase and for getting it made right. I see great things ahead for you. I agree with Little RoO about the Missouri Quilt Co you tube videos. They are great. The video for pillowcases is great.

    I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of your productions! Have fun.

    I have 2 Jamome's and a Bernina . The Bernina's are great, I do like them, but the Bernina is a real work horse, can't be matched in my opinion. Take the machine in for a ccleaning and an adjustment. My shop does that before they sell them, but maybe the place you bought yours skipped doing that. I am sure once you get it running right you'll enjoy sewing on it.

    Take it back! I would, and they would give me what I want just to get me out of the store!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
