What I think:

This is one of my personal machines and it has so many amazing features. The fabulously wide throat makes bulky projects like bag making, or Jeans making a lot easier. It threads at the touch of a button! Has the knee lift function. And if you’re a  quilter, Sew StraightTM Laser Vision Guide makes things like 1/2 square triangles a breeze – no more marking!

The embroidery is just fabulous. And My Design Centre and My Design App make things a lot more fun.

This might seem a simple thing – but it has a clock. You know how sewing has it’s own time zone and you’ll sometimes be *ahem* late for an appointment because you didn’t realise the time – this little feature is a godsend.
