I got Cynthia England's book and a kit last year at Roads. Still haven't tried to do it. Went this year on Thursday..... my new HQ Sweet Sixteen will be delivered this coming week!! WooHoo!!!! Can't comment on the Bernina discussion since my other 2 machines are Janomes.
Lucky you.....congrats!,,,, I want one and am almost ready. Looked at them on Saturday!,,
