Wow, i cannot say enough good things about the Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine!! Using this machine it was the first time I'd ever used a computerized sewing machine, but I don't think i can ever go back!! This sewing machine has ALL the features a seamstress would need, wether novice or experienced. One of my favorite features (and don't laugh at me) is the button you push to tell the machine whether to leave the needle up or put it down when you stop sewing. I know it sounds silly, but this feature makes it SO easy to do 90 degree corners. Another great feature is that you don't have to do anything to the clutch when winding bobbins. You just stick the bobbin on there, and slide the holder over. No messing with releasing the clutch, etc. I am also a big fan of the clean bobbin plate! (The cover over the bobbin and bobbin holder.) No more guessing if your bobbin is about to run out- just glance at it and you'll know!!
