Del and I had a bit of a sew last week. She lugged (it's quite heavy) her machine over from Bendigo and we stayed up far too late- very fun at the time! It's the machine she learnt to sew on- which I think is pretty great. She has just had a couple of things tweaked on it and I tell you, it's nice.
As in life, there is wisdom with the elderly- this Bernina record (from the 70's I think), is solid, gutsy, smooth and beautifully all mechanical.I do very much love and appreciate my clever more recent Bernina but I think it pays to respect our elders and remember that 'out with the old, in with the new', doesn't always ring true- you could miss something fantastic!
