Sewing machines has been a family loving experience for me. I remember always watching my dear mother while she sewed my sisters and my dresses. They were beautiful, with embroidery and crocheted flowers that she learned back in our native Puerto Rico since the age of four (4). My sewing machin is easy to align the fabric, specially with nylon fabric. The basic and decorative stiches are consistent and secured. The adjusting settings are easy to set and reliable. Bottom thread and button holer is automatic. Also the needle threader and the top loading bobbin are automatic. The tension adjustment is also atomatic and has strong lighting for close-up work. And has a nice carrying case!
