    You know that you can get 'skins' - removable and stylistic covers for your laptop, i-phone, cell phone, etc.

    Well, Bernina is not to be left behind in the minds of hip quilters.

    PS, I don't have a Bernina, but I just thought I'd share the concept. Proceeds from the sale of the skins support breast cancer research. I saw this in a recent issue of American Patchwork and Quilting (Favorite Finds page).

    Would this appeal to you if they had these for every major brand of sewing machine? Me? Maybe not.

    I might be interested. I put a skin on my laptop and I've done it for my cell phone before.

    You know, I have a Bernina (and love her to pieces) but I am not sure if I would want a skin or not....it is intriguing, but I don't think I would want to spend the money.

    It certainly peps it up, but I'm not sure I would want to spent my hard earnt money on this.

    Not really - I find it a bit distracting.

    I didn't see where is posted how much they were.
    Don't think I will spend the money on this, what ever it may be.

    I think I'm with you. ;-) Would rather buy fabric.

    What's cool is that I believe you can get a personalized skin with photos of your family, furred family etc. I don't have the extra cash to spend on it, but very cute.

    :( I wish I could get a 'skin' but I don't have a Bernina.

    They don't make them for the 640 which is what I have. At least I couldn't find it on the website. You can even personalize them, but that is more that $25.

    Looks like it might be fun. But probably not in my budget

    That was my first impression, too. Seems distracting. I'll be happy to just get my pretty covers made for mine.
