    I'm sooo excited and I knew you all would understand it. I bought a "real" sewing machine today- my 1st. I've been sewing all this time with a very old Singer...she did a good job and I will keep her, but she just won't do what I'd like to do now that I'm growing (maybe) as a quilter.

    I can't wait to play with her or him (can't tell yet) tonight and tomorrow just to see all it can do. It is a combo embroidery/sewing machine...so a whole new world for me to play in. I have my 1st class on Saturday, so I'll just play a little until then. I got them to throw in a 1/4" foot to sweeten the deal...so my blocks should look great now!

    I'm going to play now...see u all later!

    I can't seem to wipe the huge smile off my face :D . Ok, here's the scoop, its a Bernina 200E, so it embroiders and sews. It has so many features that it might even cook and clean (although I haven't seen the attachments for that yet). It has all the cool features like auto threader, auto thread cutter..a nice large table surface to sew on, front loading bobbin and a thing I love--a knee pressure thingie that lifts the pressure foot. It also has the stitch regulator on it which I think I will like, but I have to get used to that. It has 3 hoop sizes...I don't know anything about embroidery....yet :D They say I can design, edit and save designs right on the machine. It has a USB stick with more designs and also a CD/ROM that I can either download designs from the web onto that and then plug it directly into the machine...so no funky fiddlin' around with design files. To tell ya' the truth, I don't even know what all it will do right now...I can't wait to take it slowly and work through all the things to do. I really can't wait to use that silly 1/4" foot! I'm about as excited about that as anything!!

    Patti!
    I am so happy for you! I can't wait to see the gorgeous things you will do with it!

    Was this from the fav store in Jackson?
    After the weather cools, I want to meet you in Jackson for lunch and quilt shop...
    This hot weather kicks my butt! 102 degrees here today, and hubby is cutting the grass!!!

    I do good to move from sofa to recliner, but I am cooking fresh butterbeans I just shelled.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!----and it's a Bernina? I'm drooling, can't you see? :mrgreen: I got the whole sales pitch on them one day in a Quilt Store. I think the best part is that they offer classes so you will actually know how to use all those cool little gadgets! :lol:

    Oh wow! It looks so over whelming right now, but I have a class on Sat., so I'll play for a couple of days, then get some help. Maybe we can learn together :lol:
