Re: What sewing technique do you want to learn?

I always struggle with attaching double folded bias tape. It always looks bad. I have a special foot that cost a fortune and only seems to work on very thin projects. I would love to make pot holders, placemats, bibs and the like but the finish is never satisfactory.

Re: What machine are you sewing on now?

My best friend is my 25 year old Bernina 930. I've made tens of thousands of dollars with it and it never lets me down. The Swiss engineering makes every detail precise. My serger is a Bernina 2000DE that I have had for about 17 years. I love every excuse to use it; I just wish I had more time to play with all its features. When I make drapery and bedding, I use my Bernina 950 industrial machine. It sews 2000 stitches per minute. Not as intimidating as it sounds. OK so I'm hooked on Bernina. It makes me a better seamstress than I would have ever been without it.
