7½ weeks

That's how long it took for the broken part on my Bernina 440 to come in and be installed at the local Bernina dealer.

48 hours - that's how long it took for the new Ott light bulb to arrive from Amazon, and it only cost $11. Yippee!

I am a happy sewer today: The sun is shining so I can see the black thread and fabric as it goes under the lovely 440 foot. The new Ott light bulb is installed so when the sun goes behind the clouds I can still see.

So I shoved all the mess in my sewing room to the back of the closet cleaned and organized my sewing room to welcome the 440 home. I should apologize to several patient sewing friends who have listened to me the past weeks. And I should be grateful that I have back-up.

The B-team:
Has some nice features like a walking foot but not-so-nice buttonhole feature and it's unreliable.

Seriously sweet and totally reliable. No walking foot nor buttonhole feature.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Yes, it's a good day in my neighborhood. How about yours?


  1. Glad to hear that all is well in the sewing room!

  2. So now you are set up and ready to sew ~ wonder what you will be whipping up this weekend!?! ... J

  3. Wow, that was a LONG wait. That is how long I was in the FM competition! So glad it's back!

  4. So glad you're back in business! I know how frustrating it is to wait on sewing machine repair! Or, in my case, serger repair!

  5. Big happy dance for you martha!
