My Love Affair With My Bernina ❤️

I’ve sewn and been interested in all things needlework for 53 years…. I learned to sew on my grandmother’s treadle sewing machine…I loved that old machine! I made all my school clothes and many other projects on it…

My next machine was a singer which I didn’t have very long. As a young mother making clothes for my three little ones I soon traded that singer in on a brand new Elna…. I used my first Elna until it was worn out… about 20 years… at which time I purchased another new Elna which I loved and used about ten years and traded it in on a new computerized Pfaff… I wore it out too and had it long enough that all the computer connections were so out of date they no longer worked…I sewed on all these machines nearly everyday!

When my Pfaff died, I decided I was going to get the best new machine I could fit in my budget and started looking. My choices came down to baby lock and Bernina and the deciding factor was the Bernina stitch regulator… I bought a Bernina 770 QEE with embroidery module, added some extra hoops and more presser feet and I don’t regret one penny I spent on this machine! I love it… everyday it’s a delight and a joy to sit down and sew or embroider or quilt on this machine!

I keep it clean and oiled and care for it like it’s the wonderful machine that it is… I have it serviced regularly by my wonderful Bernina dealer and I’ve never had a single problem with it!

I’m hooked on Bernina!

  1. I love my Bernina too, although I am actually on my third one, a B790 which is wonderful. My first was a 140QE and the second a 440 which I still have. I also still have my first ever sewing machine, a used 1954 Singer featherweight Which I got for my 10th birthday in 1967. I made most of my clothes on it, and even some dresses for my mom! I need a lot more practice on the embroidery module of my 790 and your work which you have shared online is an inspiration to me. If I ever get my current quilting projects done I am going to get back to that embroidery module! Thanks for your shares and your blog. Looking forward to your future posts!

  2. So was it the Elna that you made those ridiculously decided on, by me, disco satin bridesmaid dresses? Sorry about that, by the way. My first machine was a Singer, for my 12th birthday. Not sure what happened to it.Then I had an all metal White, which I wore out, and traded for another White, again, all metal. White is now Husqvarna, and not as good. It’s been so long since I have sewn, I can’t remember how to thread the machine. I love all that you do, Dear Friend!
