Especially when I am free motion quilting I cannot do without my gloves with the nubs. Notice the fingertip missing? That would be my dog's fault. Once in a while he will hang out with me in my sewing room and find trouble.
My Bernina that I bought used from a friend. I really wanted a machine that would do a buttonhole stitch and this worked out really good for both of us. I have my hardy Viking in my closet for a backup or an extra. My brother made my sewing table from a door. I wish I would have thought to have him set the drop back a couple of inches, but I've used it for many years and am pretty used to it now. If your machine isn't flush with your table you'll be wonderfully surprised at the difference it makes. I love it for machine quilting, which is what I was doing yesterday.
Does your sewing room make you happy?
