FYI: My Bernina 580 and WeAllSew Partnership

Hello Friends. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some big Bernina boxes arrive a few months ago. This Spring I was lucky to receive an incredible Bernina 580. I had been in the market for a new machine for a few years and have had such great feelings about Bernina since I learned to sew on my mother's Bernina Record. (I still love that machine and sewed with it for a bit while awaiting my new one--still stitches like a dream!)

Since unboxing it, I have attended classes to learn the bells and whistles of the Bernina 580. I have a feeling I've just scratched the surface and I'm saving up to start acquiring specialty feet. (Pintucking! Ruffling! Button sewing! oh my!) And I haven't even unboxed the embroidery attachment--can't wait to give that a try! Can you imagine...? Maybe an embroidered yoke is in my girls' future.

I have been giving this machine quite a workout this summer. Seems I've been sewing nonstop! I am really happy about the performance and stitch quality. It's nice to think that my projects will be as professional as possible--any limitation is my own, not the machine's. 

But I've been busy blogging too, including some exclusive content for Bernina's Blog, We All Sew. If this isn't one you follow, you need to get over there and check out all the great content! I'm so happy to be one of their new partners! You can see my profile here and here are links to my first two posts for We All Sew:

There is more to come so I'll be sure to keep you in the loop on the projects I create for Bernina and We All Sew.

Both great machines! I have the bernina 530 and the 730 record myself. Happy stitching!

Oh! My mum had that machine too! She is very attached to hers - despite its age she won't get rid of it and swears it sews better than her new Janome with embroidery and so on.

What a beauty!!
I keep my old workhorse around as I imagine you will too!!

Mine is an old Kenmore though....1960something.
If it weren't for me digging it out a while ago and leaving the cord against the belt, it would still work! Ick, that smelled...and smoked!
