The New Bernina B710!



So I finally bought me a sewing machine.

CONGRATULATIONS IT’S A BERNINA!!! I got it at Modern Domestic here in Portland and my friend Brittany helped me unload it BECAUSE IT’S GIGANTOR.


And, of course, I began to cry because, really, I’m 31 and that’s all I seem to do nowadays.


Bernina B710AHHHH That new Bernina smell. Astounding.

Love, Amy

    Why did you choose that model?

    • Amy Nieto May 24, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

      I liked the extra area in the middle. It’s perfect for all the big bags I will sew.

    Cute! What model did you get? I still remember my first Bernina, under the Christmas tree in 1980. Now I am on my second. For my third, I want the 830 but I have to save a lot of money first! I can hardly wait!

    • Amy Nieto May 24, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

      Yeah, these require a ridiculous amount of saving. I got the B710! It’s a work-horse! Thanks for posting!

    I love it! hahahaha! what a great post! is this your first Bernina? I have a Viking and I have to admit, I enjoyed sewing on the Bs at MD for the most part….you make handbags? Does the B710 handle the thick/hard parts pretty well? 😀 sorry, so many questions!

    • Amy Nieto May 24, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

      This is totally my first Bernina! So far, from what I’ve tested it handles thickness quite well! Yes, I make bags! And the table is one from Ikea that my good friend Amy gave me. It’s a little too wobbly at times, but I’m confident it’s sturdy. CONTINUE WITH THE QUESTIONS!

    ALSO…lolz, the table…what table is that? I’m hating my table. 😀

    Congratulations!! My husband surprised me with a Bernina 710 in February for our 47th Anniversary (Yikes, that makes me 67 years old) and I LOVE IT. Have fun learning all the neat things about this honey of a machine. I call mine “Big Bertha” and my older (circa 1998) Bernina is called “Little Jo”.

      Congratulations on your 47th anniversary! And that’s a great gift, I may say.

    • Amy Nieto May 24, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

      Haha I could LIVE inside those boxes! Thank you for helping me load it to the car!
