Big Shoes to Fill

It’s been two weeks and my Bernina is still at the Bernina Doctor for a little love and care.  Here she is when she first arrived home almost two years ago. 


When she first came home she sat on top of the cabinet but with a little tweaking she is now able to sit down even with my sewing table.  I’ll take a better picture when she makes her way home again. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love my old Pfaff.  She’s always ready and willing to step up to the plate and “do her thing”.  Here she is all happy to be helping out even if she is filling some big shoes. 


I really love both machines.  As they say (whoever they are) they are different but the same.  They both have a wonderful stitch and are easy to use. I do think the even feed feature (IDF) on the Pfaff is a little better.  However, for machine quilting the Bernina wins hand down with that big throat area and the stitch regulator (BSR). 

I’m a lucky girl to have both machines that I can use.  I’d be lost if I only had one machine.  BTW, I’m not saying how many other machines are hiding in the house and the garage.  How bout you?  Are you willing to say how many sewing machines you have?




  1. I only have is a serger....but truth be told...I could adopt some more if the mood hit.

  2. I've been working on cleaning my sewing room as my goal is to bring home an 830 to a very clean & organized sewing room. Enjoy yours.

    For me, this means getting rid of machines I don't use frequently as I need the space.



Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
