Beautiful Bernina

Oh oh oh I think I’m in love with a sewing machine πŸ˜€
Today I became the proud owner of a Bernina 807! I used to use these at school and college a loooong time ago. They are truly fabulous machines – sturdy and straight forward.

It’s all coming back to me… The simplicity of changing feet and dropping the feed teeth. The lovely sound of the motor, definitely more of a purr!

I’ll be sneaking up to my attic workroom to take it through its paces…now I just need to think of a name…Bertie…Barbara… Bernie…Betsie??


This is what it looks like..too dark to photograph mine just now. I’ll take some action shots in daylight πŸ˜‰

I am a professional textile artist specializing in AppliquΓ© and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
