Virginia Farmgirl Meets Quality, Innovation & Swiss Tradition in the BERNINA 350

Hi, I'm Connie, known around Craftster as MissingWillow.  I'm a retired engineer and fire investigator who's now enjoying a hobby farm in the mountains of Virginia with my hubby and a mess of critters.  I'm a vendor at the local farmer's market selling our lamb, fleece, honey, goat's milk soap, eggs, veggies and sewn crafts (yes, I actually do live in Craftsterland!).



My first foray into sewing was in Home Economics class in junior high school.  I made a fuzzy red poncho with black pom pom trim.  That was styling!  I got my first sewing machine right after I graduated from college.  I sewed a thing or two for my girls, made a few quilts and a really ugly dress and then work and the fire service got in my way and I didn't pick it up again until I retired a few years ago.  Since then, I've learned I love doing patchwork and have even won a few ribbons for it at the county fair.

I was thrilled when I found out I'd been selected for this round of Master Craftster, which meant I'd be receiving the loan of a BERNINA 350 Patchwork Edition.  It comes with lots of extras, including a slide-on table that expands your work surface as needed.  Winding bobbins is my least favorite thing about sewing and this machine has the easiest, fastest winder I've ever seen.  It makes me happy!  I hope you enjoy seeing the projects my colleagues and I made for this series and thanks to BERNINA and Craftster for the opportunity!
