Default New Machine

Super excited, I finally got a computerized sewing machine today. It's a Uten 2685 and so far, I'm loving it.

Has almost 200 stitches, 100 standard stitches and then an additional 99 for letters and symbols. Variable speed, stitch length and width, so now I can finally scoot my needle over for a scant 1/4" and not have to worry about it, one touch reverse and needle position button, six additional feet, including an embroidery foot. Even came with a plastic cover.

I've been playing with it off and on, setting up for embroidery or FMQ'ing is a breeze, did a small sandwich with some meandering loops and it did them wonderfully. Only thing that I wish was different is that it's a low shank system, my old girl is a high shank, so that means I'll have to buy another ruler foot if I want to work with my rulers on the new one. Snap-on foot, so at least I can use my quarter-inch with guide foot that I got for my mini-machine from the same company a couple years ago.

Really love this machine, it's going to be fun sewing with it.

My first thought was that it looks like a Brother machine...a bit of research...it's made in the UK and has good reviews. Congrats !
