    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.

    Your story is so alwsome, you are truly blessed. I can only dream of an angel like that. I've wanted a Bernina so bad just can't justify the cost
    also with limited income. I was lucky enough to purchase a elna 6300
    for a descent price on ebay. I've used it like a horse and it needs lots of
    work. I've been looking for a Bernina but nothing I can afford. But maybe
    soon, I won't stop checking local papers, craigslist and ebay. Someday
    the right on will come along.

    I'm sure you will enjoy and take care of the machine like none other.
    Because she truly is an angel.
