Great News! I have replaced my poor, electrocuted sewing machine that I had brought to Ireland from the US and promptly fried. My well-timed birthday meant that I could finally afford a new machine that wouldn't blow up when I plugged it in. And the man in the shop gave me a fantastic deal... nearly 50% off because it was a shop model.

It's a Bernina Activa 145

This machine will last me at least 20 years. I am over the moon. And I have already started sewing! Of course I'll post the results...

Thanks to Dad, Sal, and Mark.
