I have a problem. I have all of these beautiful quilt designs in my head and no time to make the quilts. I realize that part of the problem is that I’m a hand-quilter (and hand-piecer) with a full-time job. I mean how many quilts can I possibly expect to make in my extra 1/2 hour of personal time per day? Most of my free-time is used commuting to the office. Is there a law yet about piecing and driving?

So, why don’t I just start quilting by machine? Last year I finally retired the 1942 machine with no reverse that I have been using since college. I spent the magnificent sum of $199.00 for a machine that went forward AND backward. That’s when the trouble began: broken needles, flying bobbins, out-of-control tension (me/not the machine). It now sits malevolently in a corner of my bedroom just daring me to try to sew on it.

When I received the following Email from Jennifer, I knew that I wasn’t the right person to give advice. We sure need some, though. I’m also ready to invest in whatever it takes to get a machine that will start turning the quilts in my head to quilts for the bed.


I’m in the process of buying a new sewing machine. In the past the most I have spent on a machine is around $300.00. I am currently looking at a Bernina which is selling for $1699.00. The other machine I have been looking at is a Brother which is selling for $1400.00. The Brother seems to have more capabilities and stitches than the Bernina.  Do you have any advise – is one preferred by quilters more than the other. I just don’t want to purchase one and wish I had gotten something else. Any advise you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you, Jennifer

Do any of you have any advice? Do you really love your machine and want to share why? I could go to the manufacturers,  of course–but, I would really rather hear from satisfied quilters. Just post your thought here and Jennifer and I will eagerly read them.
