Today was finally the day. I bought my much wanted Bernina. It was a long time in coming and so worth the wait. No, I have not plugged it in yet. Later today I will have time to try out various stitches.

With my machine I bought the #10 narrow edge foot, the straight stitch plate, the #37 patchwork foot and a walking foot. (the number 10 foot is also stitch in the ditch foot)

One thing I was surprised with is the faceplate on it is dark blue and not gold as I expected. The dealer was also surprised, as he has not seen one with the blue faceplate. No idea why this is. He is going to call the company and find out why they changed it. He told me if I decided I did not like the blue one, he would get me a gold one.

I wanted to share my good news. I have not decided on a name for it yet.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I am SO happy for you!!!Dark blue? I'd keep it -- my favorite color! Do you have a good surge suppressor or UPS to plug it into? I would keep it unplugged when you aren't using it. Have fun playing with it...you are going to love it!!

HAPPY, HAPPY, JOY, JOY! Cool about face plate, IMO. I always liked the look of the 450s that had that.

Congrats! You will love your machine. I'm thrilled to pieces with mine and everytime I see it I can't stop grinning.

Mine however has a blue faceplate...I've never seen a gold one.

Have fun playing!
