|Ladies who Quilt! Grandma Moses|
Then I sat down and fired this one up. My oh my, no wonder they want you to try out these things. It is solid and versatile, has a large throat space, great lighting and every necessary function that any serger has but you can work with 8 threads at a time and, it has Air Threading!!! Mama Mia, I was in distress. During the lag after lunch we were chatting around the room with other attendees, some we have met in other classes, when I noticed that each machine had a number affixed to the base. When I returned to the one I was using the number 17 was clearly apparent. Never thought anymore about it.
So, on the last day I bit the bullet and bought a machine. As the show was closing and the trucks were being loaded to return to St. Louis with the manufacturers machines I was to choose one for myself. I looked at that mountain of boxes and said, just give me this one it is easy to get to. We recorded the serial number and waited for the helper to bring it down from the pile and take it to the car for me. The box was large and cumbersome. He brought it down and set it on the table to get a better grip of the handles and lo and behold....the number 17 sticker was right there on the top.
It was providential, my machine, it was meant to be.

- Bernina is gone. Never traded in a machine before. I have kept them all. I am out of room so that is the new rule, buy a new one, an old one has to go.
- If you are considering buying a new machine consider a show machine. Low mileage, great price.
- I heard a rumor that there will be another show, in this venue, next year. I am all over that!!!
