Yes, that was a frustrated all in caps. Can you imagine.....me yelling? NEVER!!! lol Just kidding. All joking aside, I made the sale of a lifetime last night. First let me start with, I made the best chili I have ever made yesterday and our annual tradition of our friends, the Miller's coming over for the first big pot of the new year went off without a hitch. Jen and I decided to take a little road trip over to Hancock's and see if we could look at some embroidery machines.....cheap, easy to use, did I mention cheap? Yeah well that was the plan but we got there and then lady at the Bernina counter was well, shall we just say, she was new, very, very new and suggested we come back tomorrow. She even went a little further and told us to come after 2pm because the morning girl was "new" also....ok then! On our way out the door, I had a sudden thought (aka "brain fart") that we should just go and take a gander at the machines being sold by Hancock and not just Bernina. Well low and behold there was a machine and it was actually a Bernette by Bernina. There was a tag on it marking it from $599.00 to $399.00. You can imagine my surprise and my thought of cha ching, this might be our lucky night. Well my buddy Jack went back and looked for us to see if they had a unit available and he came back with good and bad news. The bad news was that the floor model was the only unit available, the good news was that it was 90% off.....WHAAAATTTT? Yeah, my thought exactly......$59.00 for an embroidery machine....SOLD, ring it up. Wait, not so fast, check for all parts....check. Check for hoop.....check check. How about software.....nope, nothing there and it says it is optional. OK, now I am a computer geek and love a good challenge but this one is getting me. It calls for use of eXplorations Lite software and the machine is the Bernette H79 for Bernina. I have been searching the internet for 24 hours now and nothing. I went and visited the Bernina lady today (yes after 2pm thank you very much) and she was extremely helpful but I am still without software and without a way to get images into the machine. FYI, the machine was a usb port but it is the fat end of the usb if that makes sense and not like I can stick just a normal memory stick in there. Also, the manual says that the machine's internal memory holds up to 99 designs (40 are pre-loaded). How do I get the other designs there? If anyone knows what I am talking about, I would be happy to load pics.
If anyone knows anything about this embroidery machine, please contact me and I will be forever in your debt.
Until next time,

First I have to say that I don't believe in "resolutions". I think that this is a sure way to set yourself up to fail. Sure,...
