Soon I will have my 5th anniversary.
5 years ago I found my new hobby: Sewing.
And I still love it. ❤ ❤ ❤
That’s not something I take for granted. I had often found a new hobby before, spent a lot of money on it and then after a few months or even a year no longer feel like it.
Now the time had come to invest a little more money in my hobby.
I had bought my first sewing machine BEFORE my first course day. I didn’t know what to look for as a beginner. I don’t even remember why I bought this model. I didn’t know any better.
But don’t get me wrong. This machine has accompanied me 5 years wonderfully from my beginnings until today!
Over the years, however, I have missed more and more functions on my machine, such as the machines in my course.
That’s why I’ve been looking for my favourite sewing machines for the last few months. Used because new machines are too expensive for me.
Friday was the day. I found one of the machines I liked and the price was OK for me.
Yesterday I had my new baby.
I haven’t sewed anything with it yet. Just trying to get familiar with it, because the new machine is very different from my old one. Just sewed a few seams and tried the stitches.
But I love it already.
And as a goodbye to my old machine, today I post the last piece I sewed with it.
It becomes part of a dress that I want to sew in class and also finished with my new machine.
Up to now I had always sewed things with applications for others. But this project will be for me 🙂
I love everything that has to do with the sea. That’s why I have a compass in almost all my badges.
Cutting out every single part cost me a lot of time even if the compass has 10 inches including the letters.
I could have simply ironed the compass after cutting, but I was afraid that it would come off at some point. That’s why I always sew ALL applications to the contours after ironing.
The funny thing now is that my new machine has an embroidery module and I could have stitched the compass with it hehe
Bernina’s are The best! Not paid for by the company btw. Just my personal experience. Congrats on this new purchase!!

I believe you. When I started my course, they had Bernina there, but then changed to another manufacturer. That’s good too, but the more experience you have in sewing, the higher the demands you make on the machine. And my little machine just can’t keep up. I also thought long and hard about whether I should really invest that much money. But I think it’s a good decision for me.
