platinum club memberBy: Merle on 20 May 2021fantastic machine. love the fact that you can either use foot controller, or just press the start/stop button on machine. great that you can alter "shop" settings for length of stitch and width of stitch for zigzag so easily with a touch of the buttons. Much easier to use that my old mechanical one.
