I needed a machine that travels well and still packs a big punch! This little guy comes with everything a quilter needs…the famed Bernina walking foot, 1/4″ foot and a free motion foot.

Plus some things that I cannot live without. The knee lift! I can chain piece like nobody’s business with the knee lift.

It’s the same hook system as my old machine:) Which is great because it works so well and is easy to keep clean and oil.

And there are a ton of decorative stitches I’m now obsessed with!! Bert, my old machine was great, but in addition to being insanely heavy, he did not have very many stitches:( Here are just a few of the 80+ stitches that I’m now enjoying!

  1. I think you should name WW (short for Wonder Woman) since she out performs Bert (who I assume is a man) You know how women can usually work circles around men (except for Tim at the $5 quilt meeting – LOL)
    Susan

  2. I love the knee lift too. I have a hard time sewing without it.

    How about Macy (from MayC — May Chappell). Or Chappy since it will be your new CHAP (friend).

  3. WINDELL

    The name Windell is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Windell is: Traveler; wanderer.

    People with this name have a deep inner desire for travel and adventure, and want to set their own pace in life without being governed by tradition.

    People with this name are excellent at analyzing, understanding, and learning. They tend to be mystics, philosophers, scholars, and teachers. Because they live so much in the mind, they tend to be quiet and introspective, and are usually introverts. When presented with issues, they will see the larger picture. Their solitary thoughtfulness and analysis of people and world events may make them seem aloof, and sometimes even melancholy.

  4. Hmm, I’m not good at creative naming but this looks like a nice machine. How about Cheese? Then your two babies and Mack and Cheese!

  5. How about Nina? :) i think with the graphic and the fact that it handled the duffle, it’s a bad ass lady! And likes fabric like Nina Garcia.

  6. Lee this is a CUTE machine and I went to the bernina site and it also comes in a pink whimisicla cersion as well — and I may be in love. Is this a small machine like a 3/4 machine designed for portability? I tried looking at the specks but couldn’t find a weight listed.

    As for the machine it looks like a girl machine and I think you should call her Athenia after Pigwidgeon the small adorable owl in Harry Potter who’s scientific name is Athene noctua. Cute, full of life, serves a needed purpose and it’s an owl and we all know how awsome owles are.

  7. Wow! What a fabulous new machine! :) How about Nestor (which means Traveller) or Odina (which means Divine Creative Inspiration)… Have fun choosing a name! :)
