    How many of you use the Start/Stop button on your machine instead
    of the foot pedal. I have not yet been able to get used to it.

    I have one, but don't use it. I play a lot of piano so I'm more comfortable using my foot and a pedal than some.

    It's great for long strips but not so much for short seams.

    I use mine when doing embroidery or buttonholes or other functions that are automatic. I feel I have less control than with my pedal control.
