New table is in!
New Bernina is installed!
This old dog is one tired puppy!
The acrylic insert isn't in yet, probably next week, so I just put the extension on that came with the machine and lowered the machine until it was nearly flush with the table. It will definitely work for now.
The table is really nice. It's much like the other Horn table, but there are some nice features added.
It has an electric lift for the machine. Nice.
It has a storage place underneath for the extension in the bottom photo. Nice.
It came with a built-in electrical strip. Nice.
The table has the Bernina logo on it even though it came from Horn. I asked. Apparently Bernina and Horn joint ventured on designing a table that would bear the weight of the bigger Berninas. Nice.
I wanted so badly to keep the other table, but with storage at a premium here, I decided it had to go. There's a Mennonite Thrift Shop two or three blocks from the house that was delighted to get it. I think it will sell quickly for them. In fact, before we left, there were a gaggle of ladies around the table looking at it. I've never been over there before. It was crowded with shoppers. I'll have to check them out later. An antique mirror caught my eye, and I was told they do get antique furniture on a fairly regular basis.
No, no, Vicky. No more stuff in the Quilting Condo!! None!!
I need to rest for a bit, and then start unpacking everything that I boxed up. I'm going to cull and toss a lot of stuff. A woman on a mission!
Judging from the number of exclamation points in this post, I'd say I'm a happy camper right about now!!!
