I had neglected to take my Bernina 730 sewing machine in for its 1 year check up last June and finally remembered recently. I took it to the dealer where I purchased it and had it checked out, cleaned and oiled on Thursday while I shopped in Lincoln. Don't get to Lincoln very often anymore so called ahead and made an apt. to make sure the machine could be worked on that day.
He updated my BSR foot plus I took my walking foot along as I had heard that they should be oiled occasionally and I had never taken it in so that was done too. I have had this walking foot since I purchased the Bernina 150 which I had for quite a few years.
I was told me my machine had a little over one million stitches on it already. It was a demo. machine for a while so some of those many stitches were already on it when I purchased it, but WOW that is a lot of stitches. I really wonder how many I actually stitched myself.
I did miss out on a snow storm while I was in Lincoln though. (Really don't feel bad to miss it though as we had so much last winter and don't want to see anymore for a while.) I left here by 8 am to get to Lincoln by 10 when the store opened. I drove in misty rain the entire way and it was a little sleety when I got there but it stopped soon and was just overcast the rest of the day. John called me and said it was really snowing like crazy here at home. I guess it snowed pretty hard for a couple of hours but was all melted by the time I came home.
