Today I’m part of the blog hop: Meet My Machine, so if you’re stopping by for the first time, howdy and welcome! Be forewarned I’m not going to wow you with any super-fancy, high-tech, machine. If you’ve visited my blog before, you know that I sew with an old-school Bernina Sport 801 made sometime around 1980. And I love this puppy! All metal parts, super sturdy, and no computerized anything (hello, it was made when computers were still the size of refrigerators). But it just goes and goes.
I frequently get asked the question what new machine would I recommend for someone who wants to buy their first machine. Since I’ve never bought a new machine, I don’t consider myself a great resource on new machines, so I asked my readers for some of their thoughts and experience. You can read their suggestions in the comments on this post.
I’m now toying with the idea of of upgrading myself, but still unsure exactly what to get. While I will always love this baby, I’m starting to consider the idea of a little more throat space sounding nice. I’m still doing some research of my own. I’m excited to check out the rest of the Meet My Machine Blog Hop.
Want to share your own machine and it’s story? You can link up a post here.
As part of this tour we were also invited to share pictures of our sewing space. I am currently in the middle of a few big projects and as a result, my sewing space looks like a HAZMAT reclamation super-fund site.
This block (also for Shari) came from a request for a “house” inspired block. She sent us fabric and a few images for inspiration and let us come up with what ever we liked. I loved the little focus print she sent. So I decided to build her a cute little neighborhood.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
