    Maybe the kit could be used following the direction Eleanor Burns "Trip Around the World". Her books are amazing.

    I went to a local sewing machine store, took my kenmore machine and they were able to get me going again.

    One would think that for the money you have to pay for the Name, the darn machine would work. I'd take it back and tell them it's a lemon. Because IF it's having TENSION issues NOW, it will forever. Ask me how I know! My problem child is a Janome. Same thing TENSION. Enough trouble to drive a sane person mad.
    I suspect the more "features" it has the more trouble it will be.

    I enjoy sewing for "Dresses for Africa" and also "Days for Girls". Dresses for Africa members use recycled bed linens or other fabric to sew simple dresses for girls in 3rd world countries so that they can attend school. Days 4 Girls members sew washable, reusable sanitary products so that girls dont have to miss school when they have their periods. Menstruating is a huge stigma in these countries. Some of the powers that be in these countries will do anything to keep girls from getting an education.

    Sorry that you're having problems with your machine. I'm sure you'll love your machine once you learn more about it - there is a lot to learn! Most Bernina dealers are very helpful. Perhaps you can arrange with them to spend a day in their shop (rather than traveling back and forth several times). Also, there are lots of tutorials for Bernina machines on the internet- try a google search for your issues. Best of luck to you and your new Bernina.

    The cheapest way of protecting the ironing board and the iron sole plate, is to make a parchment paper sandwich. The fabric and heat n bond (or other fusible) comprise the sandwich filling. Grocery stores and Wal-Mart, sell boxes of parchment paper in the aluminum foil area. Yes, you can do as large or small apiece of fabric with the fusible as you want, and then cut out the pieces. Read how to appliqué with fusible so you get it right. Ref: raw edge appliqué.
    have fun! I love to appliqué.

    If you figure of a good design for a portable design wall I would love to hear about it. That is one thing I still need to figure out for the space.
