Machines will come and go but the Bernina 1230 will forever be my favorite machine. I mostly use the Singer 301 for piecing quilt tops but this old Bernina makes my heart sing.
I left it here when I was here the last time because I knew I’d need this time. As I was opening the case, I found myself saying “I’ve missed you!”
I have a Bernina 430 that I bought in 2010 and even though it has more bells and whistles, it will never be my favorite.
The 1230 has stickers on it that Chad put on when he was 3 or 4 years old. When I showed them to Addie the last time I was here, she insisted on adding a few of her own stickers. Those make this machine special but even without the memories from the stickers, it’s still my all time favorite machine.
Time to start sewing on flower girl dresses. I don’t mind making them but I will be happy when they’re finished!
