On Saturday 12 March 2016 at 10:15 PM my new sewing machine arrived in Mizpeh Ramon. It's quite a change from more than 50 years of sewing with standard sewing machines. The manual is almost 180 pages!

The machine is a Bernina 570 QE. The main reason I got it was for the Bernina stitch regulator system. When doing free-motion quilting, a laser tracks the movements of the fabric and controls the motor speed as you move the quilt under the pressure foot.

A new machine calls for new projects, so I'll be journaling them here.
