So I really don't have that machine yet, but I just might have it in a few hours. After using the Bernina's BSR, I just couldn't believe it. I needed to have it. I have a good machine, but it doesn't seem to be anything like the way the Bernina stitches, isn't that what they say. 'nothing sews like a bernina. nothing'. I think that just might be true....

It's mine.

I want that machine so bad!!!!!
I am so excited!!! I left work a little early today, then I drove to Bellevue, WA. to check out a quilt store. I haven't lived here long enough to know the quilt stores around here, but now i have found MY FAV!!! It's in BELLEVUE. It is called QuiltsWorks Northwest!!! OMG!!! I didn't have alot of time, and before I knew it, someone named Jean? was asking me if I was interested in seeing any machines. Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I am interested in the Bernina 730E. I was shown this machine 2 weeks ago, but this lady showed me stuff that I couldn't believe. Bernina has introduced 830 machine which is the top of the line. I don't think I am ready to spend the $10,000 or $12,000 that the stores want for that machine, but the good part is that there seem to be plenty of women who are trading their 730's for the 820's!!! So, today I am offered this 730E for $4999.00. It has 18 hours of sew time. I put $100 down to hold it for me. Now I have to figure out a way to tell the husband, who I know would rather spend money on elsewhere. I need to figure this out. What should I do??? Tell me please!!
