Okay, maybe I’m not unboxing this glamorous sewing machine right this very minute – but my 16 year old son made a video of me opening it up and taking it out, so this moment is immortalized forever!
In the video I tell you a little bit about what led me to buy such an expensive item from an eBay seller in another country – of all things!
Fortunately, the German eBay seller Nahweltis legitimate and even though it took me nearly 6 painful weeks to get this sewing machine – it finally did come! It was stuck in U.S. Customs for 3 of those weeks. Naehwelt have an online shop too, and I might just order accessories from them (if I can stand to wait, lol).
I was able to embed most of the unboxing video in the video player on this page. It should start automatically.
The entire video includes me unboxing the embroidery unit and hoops.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

Sew up a double sided wallet to hold your face masks, hand sanitizer, and all the essentials – this one pocketbook is all you need! There’s also a narrow wrist strap that connects with a d-ring tab.

I love this knit skirt sewing pattern! It is so easy to make… took about 15 minutes to sew on my serger (not that you need one – any zig-zag sewing machine is fine) and I adore that easy fit style with a wide waistband. I’m saving those pattern pieces so I can make more skirts plus the cute little shorts and maybe even the culottes.

I love my knee lift. I learned to use it when I first got my Bernina and every time I am on a machine without one, I miss it. Mine is not the best one, some "kink" in it, but I love it!
Merry Christmas to You! I have this machine (purchased 3 years ago) and it is such a workhorse. You are going to love it. It’s easy to clean, maintain, and perfect stitches every time!
I had a knee lift on my 930 Record from the 80’s. Absolutely love it. For me it is a must. i made sure my 770 QE had it before i bought it!!!
I use it sometimes on my 1970s bernina. Not an essential but nice to have.
