I bought this white classic sewing machine when I wanted to learn how to sew. I loved it from the start. This sewing machine was easy to learn how to use. I am very happy with this White Classic product and would never buy anyother brand. I have told everyone to but the White Classic sewing machine that has asked me about it. My friends mom that has been sewing forever even thought this sewing machine was a great sewing machine. It comes with a book that is easy to read. This sewing machine is even great for my daughter to learn on she is only 9 years old and likes this sewing machine.
