Default Do you like "Bernina's Big Book of Quilting"?

I am pretty new to my Bernina 770qe, so I was wondering if you think Bernina's Big Book of Quilting is really helping you get the most out of quilting on your Bernina. Is it with the $80?

Thanks!

I didn't even know about it.
I have the same machine and have gotten WONDERFUL tutorials from youtube. Just a few: Bernina Jeff, Robin Curd, Sew Mastery, many others.
Love this machine so much!!!

Lady Ag- that book may be a good resource though. But I'm a visual learner so the tutorials help me the most. I rarely even look at my book that came with the machine.

The Bernina books are beautiful, however, very pricey. I don't think that they are worth it. A subscription to Crafts for a beginner would be more logical to me. Or even better, The Quilt Show on the web. When I was really wanting to expand my skills, I got books from the library.
I got The Big Book of Feet at a yard sale, which I was pretty disappointed with.
There are tons of free YouTube videos out there, you should take some time to explore what's out there first. You might be really glad that you did.

Don't know about that specific book, I was lucky years ago and bought the three book series of Bernina books entitled "Bernina Feetures" A guide to Presser Feet, Accessories, and Attachments. It was a very comprehensive guide to each foot . The sections on each foot would list the various techniques that that foot could be used for, give directions for each technique and also list other feet that could do the same technique. It was most helpful when doing any type of decorative stitching or construction stitching for example french seams, mock flat-felled Seam. etc. I will never ever get rid of my volumes as they are just too much of a great reference. I know a lot of folks thought the price was too high but I was working at the time and could afford them. I actually found them useful also when using my Viking as there were similar feet for that machine too.
