Is it too early to ask you for a little machine like this one?
I’ve seen these a few times in my travels and they always make me smile.
Their foot pedal is air-controlled. The size is compact with just enough stitches to do just about anything a quilter would want. The extension table is metal ----no breaking this baby off.
And shoot! Who wouldn’t want a machine with a handle that makes it look like a hand held kitchen mixer?!!!!
This is the Bernina Nova 900. They were made in the mid 1980s and only for a few years. Who knows, if I keep looking, I might cross paths with one at a price I want to afford at some point. It would be a great travel machine as it is completely mechanical and there are no circuit boards to shake loose on long car trips.
This little beauty weighs only 15 lbs.
So many machine-dreams, so little time!
Here are the photos from yesterday’s Star Struck workshop. Such great quilts are going to come from these ladies. Each and every quilt is so different from the next. These ladies were on a mission to get as much done in a 6 hour class as they could and by the middle of the afternoon you could really see that their dedication was paying off!
It’s a travel day home for me. I’m NC bound, but before I really head out on the road I have a short stop to make in Louisville, KY to meet up with a quilter who made me an offer I’m afraid I can’t refuse! And that’s all that I’m saying for now ----
Catch you from the road!
