The Sewing Machine Dilemma!

Well, wouldn't you know it. I have time at the moment enjoying Easter and holidays, plenty of time to sew and my sewing machine decides to have an attack, the same attack it had last year. Unfortunately I think this time it may be fatal.

I love my sewing machine. I have never had any trouble with it till last year. It was a birthday present, many years ago, actually about 15 years ago from my ex husband, who was quite generous. It is a Bernina with all the bells and whistles, not that I have used them, but it has been a wonderful machine.

If I have to buy a new machine which one to buy? Do I buy another Bernina or do I try a different brand? Do I get a machine that has many stitches that I may use on a rare occasion or do I buy a basic model? I must say I nearly passed out when I saw how much some of the new machines cost. Also what to do with all the specialist feet I have for my machine.

What machine do you have? Do you love it or are there problems? Where do I find an objective review of sewing machines. Dilemma, Dilemma!

  1. Pattern review has lots of machine reviews. From what I've heard, once you've sewn on a Bernina, everything else is distinctly ordinary.
    I love my Pfaff! I played for a bit with a friend's Janome and while it was nice it was not my Pfaff.
    Your top is lovely !
