Look at the beauty I won at an online auction on May 20th. I am so excited about it!!
Yes, you read that right! It's a Bernina 1020!
A public school district in Texas was auctioning off 13 of them online. Since I live in Mississippi, my daddy called me and let me know about it. I made an account and waited patiently till closer to the closing date and time.
Isn't she pretty??
Needless to say, my patience paid off. I won this Bernina for $65!!
I almost didn't bid. I already have 3 sewing machines and an overlock/serger machine. I really wasn't sure that I needed another one. I also wasn't sure what condition it would be in and I am normally not much of a risk taker
I am SO glad I decided to take the risk! This machine is GREAT! Of course, I haven't been able to see it personally. I only am going off these pictures my mom sent me. My dad was so nice to go pick it up for me as soon as my payment receipt came through.
I don't know how much this machine is actually worth, but I can now say I am a proud owner of a Bernina sewing machine. I have already been looking at different feet and accessories that will fit it.
It came mounted in a sewing table. It turns out, it was the only machine of the 13 that had the foot pedal and power cord. AND, most importantly, it works!!!
I am very happy!
If any of you know anything about Bernina and can offer any tips, please comment. It is greatly appreciated.
