What I think:
Wow! This machine has so many fabulous features that you would normally find on machines much more expensive.
It has an auto cutter, an auto threader, a one step buttonhole system (10 different buttonholes) – seriously good. And more embroidery stitches than you can shake a stick at for this price.
A great machine for beginners and beyond, this machine will grow with you as you improve your skills.
