I can't believe the price of this machine. My daughter's friend want a machine for Christmas. I am sooo tempted to tell her mom to check this out. If it works as well as the seller says, it is a steal of a price and would be a great machine for her daughter! What do you think?

I'm fairly new to sewing but I am finding it to be fun and rewarding!

That's a super deal! That would be a great first machine for anyone. I love the color design on this one. It's basically the same as the Madison, Sophia, Oscar, etc. According the the Viking site it takes group 5 feet.

I am setting up a time to go and see it tonight. If she doesn't want it, I think I do. We have a mechanical Viking for my son, but I think this one has a few more options then his machine does. I really think my friend's daughter would like this machine

I have a very similar Viking (it's labelled a Sew Easy but the dials on the front look the same.) I love him and I call him Sven. Buy it!

I think I will! The price is fantastic! It could work as a travel machine for me too. I just need to see if my friend wants it! Lol.

That's a deal. In my opinion (for what it's worth) the Skandinavia line machines were the last affordable Viking machines that had that Viking quality--using the same bobbins and feet as the higher end models.

I have a Madison, and it is a sturdy machine that stitches well. That is a bargain price, and I think you or your friend's daughter will love the machine. Good luck to you.

I haven't been able to look at it yet. I think it is a steal too. My friend wants to wait to buy for her daughter in case her daughter changes her mind and doesn't want a machine by the time Christmas arrives. So, if I can, I may be bringing it home with me soon.
