What a beautiful sewing machine!I'm looking to invest in a great sewing machine which has a strong engine. When I was 12 years, I use to sew with my grandmothers during summer break. She taught me how to sew dresses and coats. We use to go to fabric stores every weekend and spend hours looking at book patterns. She taught me how to iron, which to this day I avoid. She had an old statelessness iron. I really wish I had one. Perhaps I'll find one at a resale store:) Whenever I purchase electronics and machines I always read reviews,warranty policies and refund policies.
