as DH took me shopping for a new sewing cabinet as my Christmas gift! The one I had been using was purchased many years ago when I had a much different machine, and my beloved Bernina 1260 does not exactly fit it. The machine sits too high, even with my chair jacked up to its highest point, and my shoulders ache after a short time. I have to surround it on two sides with portable tables to support a quilt -- and ...and.. It's all just very awkward!
DH finally tired of my whining and we went out to purchase a "Kangaroo & Joey" combination sewing table and storage unit that will be customized to fit the Bernina. This is the line that used to be called "Koala", but is now known as "Kangaroo Kabinets" (yeah, cutesy spelling and all). It will be delivered, assembled, in a couple of weeks. With a little rearranging, it will fit in my current space. I'm so excited!
