Sounds a lot like my first sewing machine. It was my mammaw's and she swore it was such a good machine, the sewing machine guy said it was the best, blah blah blah... That machine hated me and wouldn't do anything I wanted. I honestly don't know where that machine is now. My husband-at-the-time bought me a new, cheap Brother at Walmart and I was scared to use it too. His mother was the sewing queen and encouraged me to use it and I didn't have a bit of problem out of it. This is why I'm more prone to newer sewing machines than with the vintage ones.
holy accessories batman!
I'd still like to be a fly on the wall when the mark... uhm I mean -buyer- opens it, and see how it's packed.
just when you think they can't get any dumber...check out this one!
these are not much better...
this one looks good, but not for that price!
would love this one..for $35!
