I’ve recently cleaned up the Sewing Porch! Why you ask? Because I GOT A NEW SEWING MACHINE! Don’t worry, Macy is still around; she’s going to be my travel machine. I wanted a full size machine and I chose the Bernina 530 Swiss Edition. I’ll admit to being swayed by the super awesome red faceplate. This machine is pretty amazing! I’ll also admit that I might have gotten a new cutting mat to match. I do love red!
I moved out of my bedroom and onto the Sewing Porch about a year ago. I love the space since it’s full of natural light. I wrote about my old space here. There are lots of tips for organization! I have most things set up the same in the new space. Off to the side, I have my old laptop (for endless trivial tv viewing), my iron, two tv stand ironing boards and a basket for scraps under my desk. I keep scraps in there until it’s full (this is pretty close!) and then I make a scrap project and donate the scraps to my guild!
I still use my handy dandy red box from my old Bernina 830. It’s a great box for all my feet and such. I’ve long been a Bernina lover.
Here’s a good shot of the machine! And my view!!
To the other side, I have more
stuff super important sewing loot! I love all the friends that made me these treasures and I hope that my treasures are loved in their sewing spaces.
The new machine does some pretty fancy stitching. I had to play!
And play some more!
So, it’s time for the GIVEAWAY! What should I name the new machine?! Lucy and Big Red have been very popular as I’ve chatted with people this week. But what do you think? Nominate a name in the comment section. If I choose your name, I will make you something cool on my new machine!!
