Connie and I are digging through the quilt shop, sorting, boxing and pricing stuff for the sale June 4-5-6. We have not started sorting through the quilts yet – right now we’re working on patterns and office supplies.
About the choice of Bernina – when Connie and I started Country Threads, I had a Singer and Connie had a Kenmore. After a couple years we found we were always needing a repairman because we sewed so much. We started asking other quilters about their choice of machine and the majority recommended Bernina because it was so reliable. Years and years go by without any malfunction of any kind and we sew hours every day. We did not need a fancy machine but we wanted the features of a knee lift and needle stop down. In order to get those features, we ended up with machines that are capable of doing lots of stuff that we have never ever used. We have several other Berninas in our classroom but the 1230 is my favorite. And that is why Connie and I chose Bernina sewing machines.
