My first Bernina – My obsession
My first and only Bernina sewing machine is a 180 with the embroidery software (185). I saw a demonstration at the New Mexico state fair. I became immediately obsessed with the sewing machine. The Bernina dealer was close to my work and I went there several times a week on my lunch hour. I’m sure the sales staff dreaded seeing me coming. Right before Christmas my husband asked me how much it was. I told him $2000. I knew that was as much as he would pay, if that much. He said go get it and I’ll give it to you for Christmas. I paid the difference and it was on order. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about a Christmas gift. If was delivered right before my Thanksgiving holidays from work. He said “you can’t open that, it’s for Christmas”. I told him “step away from the machine!”. I love it every day.
