I was offered this machine at such a low price, I decided to check it out even though I knew it couldn't hold a candle to my old FW's. Just out if curiosity, I bought it. It looked brand new - was clean, but didn't look like it had even been used. Now I know why. It is a piece of junk and even the manual doesn't make much sense. Some of you may disagree, but I've been sewing over 40 years on different machines. I looked it up online and saw both good and bad comments. Mine is going to Goodwill today.
