I am so impressed at the number and quality of the projects!  I KNOW you guys worked hard, but also, that it was loads of fun!

I love how you all described in real life the features of your machine....looks like there is a machine to meet the skills and needs of anyone who loves to sew!  YAY for Bernina for offering choices!

Love everything and even hope to try some of the projects out!

I also love the knee hook that lets you lift up the presser foot hands free...that is awesome...
