For 30 some years I have sewn with an old Singer. My mother, Bernice, decided she wanted to learn to sew, so I offered to buy her an inexpensive machine she could use until she figured out if she really was going to like sewing. Instead she bought this beautiful Bernina Aurora 430 LE. I always remembered the brand by “Bernie’s Bernina”. Mom became gravely ill and passed away two years ago, and thanks to her foresight, I have enherited “My 1st Bernina”. Thanks, Mom!
