    Congratulations, you certainly deserve the new machine, enjoy, can’t wait to see all the new projects you will be creating!

    A new sewing machine! Always a welcome sight. Your furry friends will all want to check it out. Every time I sat down to sew my cat was right there helping me. I don’t care where she was, when I sat down she was there!
    Another really fun thing to do is get in the sack of brand new fabric and get white cat hair all over everything.
    Happy sewing to you!

    You deserve it and you will love it. I splurged on the 750 for my retirement and have not regretted it!! It does purr like a kitten. Can’t wait to see all of the projects you produce. Enjoy:)

    PS I know Rick is handy. If you have the Horn cabinet fit for another machine, Rick can probably “shore it up” to hold the extra weight. That’s what my husband did and it’s fine. I just don’t put it up and down which I never did anyway. Good luck.

    Great !!! Let us know what you like about it. Not that I need a new machine. But sometimes it’s just nice to upgrade. Nancy P.

    SHE SURE IS A PRETTY THING. Is there such a thing as sewing machine envy? You certainly have earned the right to owning her. You have paid yur dues. Glad you are boarding dogs again. I am sure that their owners are glad as well. Moving on is a personal thing, no time line and no way around it. BUT just glad you are taking care of those who’s owners will be comforted knowing their fur babies are getting the best personal care available. By the way, do you board husbands? AND if so will you pick them up at the airport. If not I can drop him off we only live in Baltimore.

    I purchased a Bernina 440 QE when I retired in 2008. It has been the best machine I have ever had! Someone could have my husband, but never my Bernina. Congratulations! I know you and Connie will have a blast.

    Lovely machine! I have a old machine. Do I need to mortgage my house to buy one of those? Just wondering?

    1. Sharon Hultgren

      Yes! 😊 The added sewing and quilting area is beyond compare!!

    May your new Bernina 740 bring you many happy hours of sewing and quilting in the years ahead.

    I use a 35 yr old Singer for my piecing. Thought about getting a new machine for Christmas last December. Husband was ready to purchase for me, but i really don’t know if I need a different machine. Mary, could you devote a blog to why you chose the Bernina and what you can do with this machine? Anyone, really, could respond.

    She’s a beauty! I wonder how quilts you will be churning out now with that high powered beauty!

    Was thinking of replacing my current 440 Bernina with the 740. Am anxious to hear your feedback on the 740 as I respect your sewing expertise.

    Thinking I like the larger throat space, the dual feed, and the self thread tension featured on the 740. I frequently have tension problems when machine quilting with poly thread using the BSR on my 440.

    From what I read this machine sounds fantastic.

    Thanks – Terry

    You may have already done this with your old machine but I would recommend plugging the new machine into a surge protector, basically like a computer. I always unplug mine when I’m not sewing just so a power surge does fry the mother board (just like a computer) but a surge protector made for electronics is worth the investment I think!

    Amy, that’s what the store owner told me when I bought mine. Good advice.

    I treated myself to a new Bernina like the one you purchased and have never regretted it. It’s so much fun to see everything it can do and I am still finding new things. Enjoy the machine!
