Love my machine!
April 26, 2013
By lynnard5714 from cincinnati, ohio
love, love, love my machine. the only problem i have with it is that she doesnt like the cheaper thread, it has to be mercerized or cotton covered polyester. It will not tolerate anything else at all. Once i realized that, we have been super successful!
