    Looks good except for the "pushing down" to control the machine. Nice sleek look tho, but do not think it is very versatile. Check out Threads magazine..there is an article on it.

    Interesting machine. Makes a lot of sense.

    It would be fun to try - wonder how hard you have to push down on the fabric - would your hands get tired?

    Did you see a bobbin? I wondered if this was like the antique chain stitching machines (shuttle)? The flexible drive shaft was innovative, but not enthused about a chain stitch.

    I wondered about the chain stitch. And if you push down to run it, every time you move the fabric, it stops. It does say this it is geared towards folks who don't know how to use a sewing machine already, so we aren't the market. But I do think the flexible drive shaft is an idea that seems like it could improve sewing machines, larger harps.
