My Happy Dance!!

Click the arrow in the video to see my happy dance... :)
Now scroll down to see what I am celebrating!!!

For the past year, I have been following Jeanne (aka The Bernina Lady) around to her displays and hounding her with questions via email. No doubt she was beginning to think she had a stalker! She has been so wonderful through the whole process and I feel confident she is as dependable as the Berninas she sells. Wednesday she was passing through Amherst and the Christmas specials she was offering made the timing right. I did it!!! I am soooooo thrilled with this beautiful machine:
The Bernina Aurora 440 Quilter's Edition.


  1. You do a mean Happy Dance Karen.......CONGRATULATIONS........looks like a real beauty. You must have been a realllllllllly good girl. :) A new sewing machine is sorta like having a baby. Welllllllll..the elated feeling is the same. LOL Enjoy!!

  2. Oh I know how much you wanted one... I met the Bernina lady and she is an absolute doll. I hope to be one of her girls in the near future.
    Congratulations and enjoy!

  3. I have the quilter's edition that I bought used from a cousin years ago. I work it hard and I love it!

  4. Karen - i will look forward to updates on how well you like your new sewing machine. I, too, have had the pleasure of meeting Jeanne & hope some day to possibly own a Bernina. Lucy
    (ps - i love the "Present" potholders from the Sussex Guild - i especially like the black ones.

  5. Hello Karen
    That's some dancing girl!!! As my brothers would say "Sister what have you done now??????"
    The good news is I'm moving back to Amherst in 2010 after 42 years & I'm hoping to meet "THE BERNIA LADY" Can't wait. Never thought retirement could be so exciting.
    Keep dancing.

  6. Karen..Congrats!! What a good decision you have made. I have sewn on a Bernina for years, and would have nothing else!! As they say- Nothing sews like a Bernina! Nothing! Merry Christmas!

  7. I love my Bernina Aurora QE440 - it was my dream machine! :)

  8. Love your new machine. Maybe you can give a demo at one of the guild meetings. We just love having you visit us. Maybe you can show us your new tattoo. Pauline
