    My Bernina 640E --- I bought it as a demo....half price. Next is my Tutto rolling cart for the machine and embroidery attachment - also at half price at 4:40 PM on an Sun. Will try for serger bag this time.
    I always ask the vendors on Sun afternoon for a discount or for demo's as they are reluctant to pack up...that is unless they are going on to another show.

    I purchased a needle threader made by the KAWAGUCHI COM. It has a hole for large needles and one for very thin needles, like for beading. My eyesight is go bad that it took me forever to thread a needle in the evening by lamp light. But this works great! Now I can do handsewing at night. Just love it and not very expensive. I think $10

    I agree that my rotary cutter and mat are my favorite purchases.

    My "Curve Master" foot
    "Gradations" batiks - wonderful for sashing samplers of various colors
    A bundle of 1/2 yd. cuts of shirting fabrics
    And most of all, "Dear Jane," the book which got me started on many years of enjoyable sewing

    Hi Lynnie - I loved my Brooklyn Revolver, but it's gotten way too expensive to replace, even for me with a wholesale account. When it wears out there's a Fiskar rotating square at Joanns - about $14 without using a coupon and it can cut a 6" square which can't be done on the BR

    My favorite show purchase was the Martelli cutter and their blades. Took me forever to begin using it, but now I use it all the time. Much easier on my wrist and cuts well when I'm sitting down. The blade is sharper and longer lasting than any other I've used, including Gingher's.

    curve master foot

    I also bought a curve master foot at a show, but never haven't been able to get it to work.
    Wish I could because I love curved seams.

    If anyone knows a tutoral that will help me learn to use this foot or has any tips for me, I would
    greatly appreciate it. I did watch a live demonstration at the show.
