About a week ago someone inquired about the performance of her Simplicity Quilters Classic machine, how it takes another stitch when using the buttons etc. Mine does too and I find it nothing to worry about, I seldom use the "up or down position"of the needle or the "one more stitch" button. I love the machine and use it most of the time I am sewing anything.
The feature that you can sew with this machine without the use of the foot pedal is unique and I tried it although I don't need it. I am sure it will give me many years of service and hope the person who asked about this will agree.
