Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I'd just like to apologize for being one of the lurkers. I'm not a very talkative person and find it difficult to interact with others, even those I know well. I am guilty of hopping on here to ask for advice or occasionally comment on a subject under discussion. I do hope that my reticence isn't mistaken for being one of the negative lurkers. Your friendliness and willingness to share your knowledge and experience has been invaluable to me as I have acquired and restored my vintage machines. For that I am very grateful.
I love the pink and red machines.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

Those vintage green Berninas are such handsome machines. I have seen two up close; I haven't gotten to play with any. I know that someone on this board is lucky to own one, I just can't recall who does. I keep seeing those machines posted at around $500; I'll never pay that, but I will have fun dreaming and drooling from afar.
