Sewing Paradise in Budapest

Two weeks ago my family and I visited Budapest, Hungary where, among lots of historical monuments, is closest sewing paradise. Yes, Varrogepcentrum is closest store with huge amount of sewing machines and accessories.  We picked accommodation that is near the store so I can just walk to the store when kids are resting. Most of the Friday was for riding in public transport and getting to know the old city. Kids loved the tram ride because it was to cold to walk around. I couldn’t wait till tomorrow so I we all walk in to the store but it was a nightmare with kids trying to touch everything, so we walked out pretty fast.

 

Prije dva tjedna s obitelji sam posjetila Budimpeštu u Mađarskoj gdje se, između hrpe povijesnih znamenitosti, nalazi i raj za ljubitelje šivanja. Da, Varrogepcentrum je meni najbliža trgovina sa ogromnom količinom šivaćih strojeva i dodataka. Izabrali smo smještaj koji je blizu trgovine tako da mogu prošetati do nje dok se djeca odmaraju. Većinu petka smo proveli vozeći se javnim prijevozom i upoznavajući stari dio grada. Djeca su uživala u vožnji jer je bilo hladno za šetnju. Nisam mogla izdržati do sutradan pa smo svi skupa ušetali u trgovinu ali to je bila noćna mora jer su djeca pokušavala sve dodirnuti pa smo jako brzo izašli van.

On Saturday morning, after I had my coffee, first thing I did was walk to the store by myself. Spent two hours inside talking to a nice  sales lady who speaks english. People working it store are amazing, helpful and willing to answer any question I had. Look just how unbelievable choice of sewing machines they have.

 

U subotu ujutro, nakon jutarnje kave, odmah sam sama prošetala do trgovine. Provela sam tamo dva sata razgovarajući s jednom od prodavačica koja zna engleski. Zaposlenici trgovine su odlični, voljni pomoći i odgovoriti na sve upite koje sam imala. Pogledaj samo koji nevjerojatan izbor šivaćih strojeva imaju u trgovini.

After considering all I have seen, decided to buy Bernette London 7 and not just one, but 4 of them. They seemed to have all the features that I was looking for and design was amazing. It should be the best choice for the creative workshops that I am planing to organize in near future. The  shop was so kind to offer shipping of the sewing machines because we did not have enough free space in our car.

Nakon što sam uzela u obzir sve što sam vidjela, odlučila sam kupiti Bernette London 7 i to ne jednu, nego četiri komada. Imala je sve funkcije koje sam tražila i sam dizajn je odličan. Odličan je izbor za kreativne radionice koje uskoro planiram organizirati. Toliko su bili ljubazni da su mi i ponudili slanje strojeva poštom jer nisam imala dovoljno mjesta u automobilu.

I plan to do a in depth review of the Bernette sewing machine in the next post, because all of the amount of feature to be covered.

Detaljni opis mogućnosti i funkcija Bernette šivaćeg stroja planiram u slijedećem postu zbog količine funkcija koje posjeduje.

Rest of the weekend was spend enjoying with family in all that Budapest has to offer, beautiful monuments, great amusement and amazing food. We will be back again as soon as weather warms up.

Ostatak vikenda sam provela uživajući s obitelju svemu što Budimpešta ima za ponuditi: prekrasni spomenici kulture i povijesti, odlična zabava i nevjerojatna hrana. Vratit ćemo se ponovno čim se vrijeme proljepša.
