Oh, and this machine, the Alto, is controlled by the use of hands pushing down on the base, area by the foot and needle, for speed of sewing. I love her comment as to how so many folks just get lost by threading a machine, which is why she design this with a very simple threading path to the needle. I don't have difficultly following a path for threading, but I do understand this statement since many of my vintage machines thread so differently from each other.
I'm off to my other projects. Hope all is well for everyone. Enjoy!
