These are the words I hear from my wonderful fella when I bought myself another sewing machine a few weekends ago. Of course he kinda knew I was going to do that anyways. And it doesn't really matter because we keep separate accounts - a total relationship saver! This beauty is my first find from Craigslist.
I got this for a few reasons.
- I have an 11-year old step daughter who wants to sew. My heart almost explodes each time she bellies up to my Bernina. This will be the machine that she'll be able to use without me have mini-heart attacks each time she asks to sew something.
- I'm nostalgic. My mother had a machine just like this when I was a child. All I heard for years is how this is the greatest machine ever. I wonder if my step-daughter will one day pick up a Bernina 1008 just for this reason.
- It was cheap. For a machine that I know how to work it really was a good deal. I'll have to bring it into a shop to get it checked out, just cuz I roll that way.
-A carrying case. . awesome!
It has a smaller throat than I remember. I don't have any cams besides A that she had with it. And there was only one foot. So I'll slowly be looking for additional parts for my new-old Viking. Heck I even remember where to turn off the light. Oh and my mother approves because she still tells me I've come out hundreds of dollars ahead - she is so jealous.
