Watch out, everyone. You never know when she will show up.

OK, this the story. My Bernina 817 broke, again, and I posted in another message board where I go frequently. I got a few responses with very nice ideas to get it fixed with my now very limited income. I received an e-mail from a very nice lady telling me that she has a machine she wasn't use it, and I was free to it if I wish. She said it was a Bernina 630. I of course, accepted, and she even paid the shipping. I received the machine by UPS and my husband almost fell off the chair when the box was open. She sent me a barely used Artista 630, with extra bobbins, the Bernina Stitch regulator, a couple extra feet, and every bell and wistle that comes with it. I am still in schock and can not stop sewing and pinching myself to make sure I am awake.

I promised to keep her name private, but I will call her my quilting Angel. She is also and avid cross stitcher like me and a self tought quilter. There is some amazing people in this world.
