My First BERNINA: Céline’s Story
Hi! I had dreamed all my adult life to own a Bernina. One day, in 1998 in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, in a store at the shopping center, I saw a beautiful old model 830, year 1974, on sale for $225. I drove back home, told my husband about it and he said: «And you did not buy it?». Let’s get in the car we will go and buy it… and that what we did. I took my newer other brand electronic machine out of my sewing cabinet, put my beloved and so much desired Bernina in, and it has reigned since then. This was in 1998, I think. Since then, I bought another old model 830, a 1975, and it is there in case the first one fails. That is LOVE! I love it, it embroiders, makes perfect buttonholes, I LOVE IT!
