Does anyone have this machine? I'm thinking of buying it since it's 40% off today on Amazon Prime.
I do not want some insane sewing machine with 10,000 stitches when I really probably only want 3-4. I just want a good, reliable machine that doesn't need too many trips to the service center.
I'm happy with my Singer Genie except for the following:
No Needle Down Option
Can't slow down the speed except by foot control
No blanket stitch for machine applique
It tells you how many stitches to an inch rather than the actual length of the stitches
I was also thinking the push button Start might be useful, but come to think of it, that might just be confusing. I'm a simple, no-frills gal & just want a machine that will do a consistently good job with piecing (which mine does) and that I can use for FMQ (severely limited with no needle down option).
Any thoughts? Other recommendations?
