The Adventures of Kittykill and the BERNINA 330



Hi! I'm Pam aka Kittykill! I am mainly known over on the needlework boards but I do like to dabble in a little sewing from time to time.  Smiley When I am not working on Craftster Quickies or dealing with a silly day job, I am hanging out with my three pups and my wonderful husband in the Pacific Northwest.

My first venture into sewing was teaching myself to make a shirt for the hubby. Let's just say it was definitely trial and error. The error being me putting the sleeves on backwards. Cheesy My husband was a good sport and even tried to tell me it was fine. I told you he was wonderful!

After the "armhole incident" as it became known at our house, I decided to keep trying and branch out, trying other patterns and actually taking a class or two.

Fast forward to today and Craftster and the opportunity to sew with a BERNINA 330. I could not believe I was given a chance to use this machine. My last machine was over 18 years old and all the parts were missing. It finally died on me and I was left machineless.

Seeing the BERNINA 330 for the first time made me feel like a kid in a candy store! I couldn't believe all the functions! There are so many bells and whistles and yet none of them are above the average or beginner's head. Perfect for me!



Moving on to the accessories-holy cow! I can't believe all the great treats I got! Bobbins, extra needles and thread. Don't even get me started about the retractable cord on the foot peddle. Brilliant!


The only thing this machine is lacking is telling me which way to put on sleeves Cheesy Oh well, I guess I can't have it all.
