    Not new but new to posting.

    HI, guess I am a little shy, been reading QB almost every day for about a year and finally decided to join in.. I am a Mom, Wife and Grandma to 6. I live in Hudsonville MI. I love to quilt and just totally got into it a couple of years ago. I just got a spanking new Bernina 710 and love it. Not too sure it loves me back that much for now. I have had two demonstrations and one class so far. I still am having trouble understanding it, but I will keep taking lessons and plugging away. I am a self taught quilter and computer operator so I don't think a sewing machine is going to get the best of me. I want to be able to take advantage of every thing it has to offer. Any one out there who has the 710 and finding it hard to figure out? I do need some encouragement, I am a little embarrassed. I will continue to read about all you wonderful gals, your input and photos of your beautiful quilts. Someday I may just post a pic. of one of mine. Yours are all so beautiful. Well, thanks for reading and have a great day!

    Welcome from the Adirondack Mtns of northern NY state. Glad you decided to post. I got a Bernina a couple years ago and love it. Mine is just the basic model. They assured me it had same motor as more expensive ones and all I do is straight stitching so this is perfect. If you stick with it, you will get it.

    Hi and Welcome to the board! It's been a few weeks since your post, so how are you liking your machine now? Is it liking you any better? I have been drooling over the 710' s at my dealer's, but I have only owned mechanical machines and wonder if this would be too big a step for me. I love the throat space on the machine and since my Fmq is terrible, I think I would get good use of the bsr. Wishing you the best with your beautiful new machine!
