Unboxing my Tula Pink Bernina 770QE right now!

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 Nahwelt is 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.

You can watch it on my YouTube channel here and you’ll hear what I think about what Bernina calls a ‘large’ hoop!


And I’d love for you to tell me – do you use a knee lift on your sewing machine too?

Do you also consider it a ‘must have’ or do you think its just an annoying feature that makes a sewing machine more expensive? Tell me in the comments, I’m so curious!

Thanks for watching my videos. You are the best readers ever!

    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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!!!

  4. I use it sometimes on my 1970s bernina. Not an essential but nice to have.
