I'm loving this machine! Only got it two days ago and I've been sewing non-stop. It does everything they claim it does and does it all very well! I'm having so much fun! Never knew sewing could be so enjoyable. It was a cinch to get the thread and bobbin ready. The automatic needle threading is awsome, and while the automatic thread cutter seemed like an un-necessary feature to me at firt, I now could not live without it. I also am enjoying that there is an on/off switch on the machine so you don't have to use the foot pedal if you don't want to. The switch is wonderful. I can't believe how quickly the automatic button holes get done, and they look nice. Directions are easy to follow. Within a few minutes of taking the machine out of the box, I was on my way to making a darling project. So happy I made this purchase!
