Happy Birthday To Me – Bernina 440 Addition

I would like to say thank you to my Fabulous Hubby! Because of him I am the proud owner of this (new to me) sewing maching, a Bernina 440. It’s a beauty. Vale you are wonderful & I love you so much. Thank you for all you do and putting up with my crazy mess.

Happy Birthday To Me I got a used Bernina 440

EEEKKKK!!! I am so, exited and I can’t wait to start sewing on this bad boy. Isn’t he glorious?? However, I have never owned a Bernina and am a little nervous. This is a little overwhelming because there is such a big difference from my Phaff. It has features like a BSR foot, Bernina Stitch Regulator foot. Another thing I love about this machines is I can change how fast or show I stitch my stitches. It locks stitches with the touch of a button. Because of all this, today I put away my Phaff and set up my Aurora 440 Bernina Quilters Edition. What will I sew first?? I will finish my current project, Square off #3… so much to do & so little time.

Since I am SOOO happy and in a generous mood…. I am going to have a Birthday Give-Away. This is the very first Give-Away I am hosting on my site. I will be giving away 2 sets of these four fat quarters. The fabric is from my Jack & the Bean Stock collection that I had printed by spoonflower. I love looking at these fabrics!! Don’t you?

      Thank you!! I agree. I am very lucky. It will take me a long time to figure it out, but we bought it from a Bernina Dealer so it came with classes. And believe me… I plan on taking them.
