Love the machine! Spent today making a ridiculously complicated jacket, I had to adapt the pattern a fair bit – one day I might take the simple route – but its worked so well, no swearing at the machine, I haven’t spent hours trying to thread needles, even the unpicking was straight forward! (Needed major adjustment around the head of the sleeves), I have straight topstitching, not tackled a button hole yet, that will be next garment, but I love the precision, and the needle up/down makes life so simple. Love my new machine thank you.
