The Night Before Christmas, BERNINA Style
'Twas the night before Christmas
And in the sewing room, deep
Not a bobbin was turning
All was quiet ...my 830E asleep.
A cup of eggnog rested on my knee,
UFOs scattered far as the eye could see.
Unfinished quilts, stockings, and shirts,
Half-finished linens, unhemmed tree skirts.
I closed my eyes and came up with a plan;
I'd put IOU's in everyone's hands!
I'd write, "I'll make you a shirt, a quilt, a clock."
But the words sounded hollow, false, a crock.
And deep in the midst of my solemn unease,
I heard a strong wind blow through the trees.
Outside of my window there came such a clatter,
I rose from my machine to see what was the matter.
Three little creatures flew through the night
To enter my sewing room and make everything right.
"I'm Dongle! I'm Dual Feed! I'm BSR!" said the three little elves,
And they zoomed their way to my supply shelves.
"We'll get everything fixed up, lickety-split;
You just relax with your eggnog, sit, sit, sit!"
And they worked their magic on that Christmas night,
Dresses were finished, and wrapped up tight.
Quilts were completed in the blink of an eye,
And I leaned back with my eggnog and happily sighed.
I watched as they worked on towels and skirts.
They freemotioned quilts, embroidered stockings, and shirts.
They ironed, they pressed, they had such skill -
Watching them work was such a thrill!
"Oh, to always have an embroidery-830 elf,
Would be a wondrous thing," I said to myself.
And as Christmas Eve night turned into day,
I heard the wee little elf, Dongle, say,
"Our work here is finished, and its been so much fun,
Christmas is saved, our task is now done."
And they rose up in the air, ready to fly
Out through the window and into the sky.
But the sewing room would be much more fun
If three little elves got all the work done.
So I grabbed Dongle and Dual Feed and held BSR tight;
There'd be no escaping on this Christmas night.
I opened my thread chest and stuffed them inside;
I paid no attention to their pleadings and cries.
My apologies to Santa, but these elves are mine!
I'm going to use them all of the time.
If you are a Bernina owner you will know what a Dongle, a BSR and a Dual Feed are. Maybe if you don't own one you will still like it.
Merry Christmas Friends, Karen
