I voted because it's in my house and I use it, although it's not technically mine Wink

My girlfriend has had her Bernina here for a few years now. It was easier than running it back and forth all the time.

We enjoy it quite a bit and have never had a problem with it.

I looked at newer ones a year or two ago...the only thing I wish ours could do was bigger areas. Right now 4x6 is as big of an area as we could embroider in. We can do bigger things...but that involves moving the fabric in the hoop, trying to line things up perfectly, hoping the fabric doesn't stretch too much one way or another...it's a huge pain in the bum!! So if/when we do get a new one I'd only get one that can do the mega hoops as well. They go up to 8x10 I think Surprised)

When I was reading them I did NOT find many good reviews on the machines that both sewed and embroidered. It seems they are good at one or the other...but the mulititasking is a bit too much.


It's not something that we use a whole lot...but we enjoy it and pull it out several times a year. The last time we used it it was to redo a purse I had bought for Daisy at Goodwill. It was a black little purse with a pink embroidered monogram...it was like brand new. I bought it for a buck, pulled the monogram out with the seam ripper, and we embroidered Daisy's name on it Smile She was thrilled!

I have a Singer Futura and sadly, I don't know how to use it to its full capacity. It is a sewing/embroidery and I use the sewing feature because it is easier to only have one machine set up rather than having two work stations.

I have a Bernina sewing machine with embroidery attachment.When I got it embroidery cards were very expensive and few for my machine. The bernina embroidery machine had many more cards to choose from. Dh also bought me the software to design and or download from the Internet, I was not online back then & still haven't taken the time to learn or use it. Embarassed
Bernina had rights for certain designers, babylock others, etc. .
I'd look into cards you would want. I don't know what new machines do as far as download or writing designs.Can't help there, sorry.

We have a magic box...so we go online and download our designs for free instead of buying individual cards full of designs. I'm thinking the magic box was a little chunk of change itself...but we use it for everything we embroider Smile

What do you do with your embroidery machines? I have looked at them, but they seem so complicated. I sew a lot. I have been sewing since I was in junior high and that was a long time ago.

Where do emotions come from? Are they from the world or created from the mind of God? (long) ... The issue that I would like to address is the statment that you make that: "Emotions are of this world."
