Wife, mother and full-time online college student. I recently acquired a sewing machine from my mom. She had a Bernette 65 sewing machine that she's been using for the past year. Her old Bernina finally burned up - the one she used when I was little and made clothes for me for school. Now it's my turn to make clothes for my little one - but for play, not school. I'll be able to fix her uniforms if they rip or tear, which will be nice for us because we won't have to replace them.
