My First BERNINA: Kathy’s Story
My first Bernina was purchased Aug 30, 2010, on my 35th wedding anniversary – but not by me!
I had an old Kenmore sewing machine that was very basic, and did the job I needed. But when I developed an interest in learning how to quilt, I soon realized that this machine just didn’t meet my needs anymore. My husband would hear my cursing from my sewing room, as I tried to make the old Kenmore do things it just wasn’t built to do. So, he paid a visit to the wonderful ladies at My Sewing Room in Calgary, where I had taken some quilting classes, and they sold him a Bernina 440QE! He surprised me with it on our 35th anniversary. When I went for my introduction classes, the ladies were all excited to meet the lady whose husband spoiled her with this fabulous machine. Since then, I have made many special projects for myself and others and still love my Bernina.
