    Well, I did it;I bought myself the Bernina Aurora QE 440 and the Horn Quilter's Dream sewing cabinet. I am soooo excited!

    I was hoping to sell my HQ-16 before I invested any more money into sewing machines, but Thursday 3/5 was my birthday and I bought what I have been wanting ever since I played at my sister's house (and she has the Bernina and Horn). I know many people think I'm crazy to go from a long arm machine to this little Bernina, but I am so much better at FQM than what I could do on the H-Q long arm.

    I thought DH might pop a blood vessel because I made this purchase while my money is still tied up in the HQ-16, but he actually was very supportive. He knew how badly I've been wanting this Bernina and he said that it was better to buy it than to keep lowering my price on the
    HQ-16, just because I was anxious to sell. Yeap, as far as hubbies go, he's a real keeper! So now the pressure is off;whenever the HQ sells, it sells. In the meantime, I'm thrilled to death with my new Bernina.
    Happy Birthday to me!

    Happy belated birthday, Nita. My granddaughter has the same birthday. I certainly would love to buy your longarm, unfortunately, I don't have the space or the money right now. Congratulations on your new Bernina. Have fun.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! What a wonderful Birthday present. If I could Nita, I would buy your HQ as that's the machine I'm wanting, but not enough funds and you're waaaaaaaay over there on the east coast while I"m on the west.. Good luck to you selling it. :-)

    Hi Dodie! Yes, I got the BSR. Good to know someone else who has it and loves it. My sister tried doing FMQ for YEARS ...... took classes, etc. but, until she got the Bernina w/ BSR she just couldn't get even stitches. Since she has had the BSR, you should see the wonderful FMQ she has managed to do. When you say that you do larger quilts, how large are you talking about? I'd appreciate any hints/words of wisdom you could share. Thanks, Nita

    I do as large as queen size but in sections as large as quarters or as small as blocks then put them together works great I also trace patterns on
    press and seal using a ball point pen it sticks with no pinning just remove carefully and can do any design will be happy to help you in any way I can

    I have a Quilter's Horn Cabinet too and Looooooooove it!! Although it has been in storage for almost 5 years, but I am hoping that will change soon. I hope to have a house very very soon!

    Congrats on your new babies and a happy belated birthday!!!

    Happy Birthday, a couple of days late. I know you will enjoy your new things immensely. Although I don't have a new Bernina, I have the 153 QE, and LOVE it! Can't say enough about the Bernina's. You got my dream set up & I'll look forward to seeing the wonderful things you make.

    I want both a hubby like that and a Bernina like that and a Horn cabinet. Let's see...is there enough room for the hubby to sleep in the cabinet while I sew?
