Sold!

No sooner had my  quilt 'Bexhill Breakwaters' returned from its travels to various exhibitions when it  was off to a new home. At least I've got the 'toile' that's in Ian's office as well as being featured in the excellent 'Breakthrough' catalogue  and there's the sample to be returned so best of all possible worlds!!
I'm wondering about whether to invest the money towards a  Husqvana 'Megaquilter'/Pfaff Grandquilter/Janome 1600p  sewing machine - good excuse to test drive them  at Knit and Stitch at Ally Pally. If possible I'd like  to do a trade in of my Bernina Vituosa 160  -  I've got my Bernina Activa 125 for all the fancy stitches I need   and workshops but could really do with a  workhorse of a machine with a larger working area. I do love Berninas but the Bernina 820 is way, way  beyond my budget.
