So... on Saturday, we had a great bunch of gals from Sydney, Griffith, Canberra and Ballarat (first time ever - no locals!) all picking up as many bag-making techniques as they could squeeze into 6 hours. The weather was even nice enough for a few of us to brave... I mean, ENJOY... lunch on the new balcony setting.
It was, quite co-incidentally, a Bernina-fest. For the first time ever, no other sewing machine manufacturer was represented. (Ok, so 3 of the Berninas were mine, but the others were brought in by proud and enthusiastic Bernina owners). The day was spent in fine company and it was great to see those "AH-HA!" moments hitting home. (When you stop people every few minutes to say "Oh, I can show you a trick here...", that recognition means a lot. Nice to know that I'm not being simply annoying while people are trying to sew.)
QUANDRY OF THE WEEK (in need of helpful feedback)...Do you think I should become a Bernina dealer? I mean, I wax lyrical about Bernina machines because I totally believe in them.... should I be being PAID for it...? Will it make me look insincere and negate all I say and all that I've said in the past..? Will it be ... like... selling out, man....?
