Sewing machines are a little like cars, they last a long time but new models keep coming out with new features. Heck, the new Bernina 8 Series machines even have alarm clocks if you need to be reminded that it’s time to do something else 🙂 They pretty much do everything but make coffee (at least I didn’t see a place for a filter). My trusted Bernina 817 is almost 30 years old so it doesn’t have NEAR as many features as the new computerized models, but it sure was fancy when I got it new as a teenager. It’s still a workhorse and I’d never give it up, but momma needs a new Bernina! Since I’ll have to wait on that a little bit, I’m happy to enter the Spring 2010 Bernina Favorite Feature Contest for a chance to win a box full of goodies from Bernina, OESD, Benartex and Brewer! All you have to do to enter is post a comment on the Bernina blog about your favorite sewing machine feature!
Thanks for promoting our Favorite Feature Contest! I love reading all the comments and seeing what the most popular features are. So far, it looks like the Free Hand System is in the lead. I hope all your readers come visit our blog for the contest, and stay around to read some of our posts! Jo

The computerized machines are so o o much easier and fun than the old machines. My 30 year old Kenmore still works for basic sewing, but it doesn’t have all the pizzazz that the new ones do. I love the duel feeding, the needle down and all the fancy new stitches. I love how buttonholes are so much easier to do.
I love your blog and would love to win that new machine!!!
