|What Tyrza likes about this machine|
I got this machine in High School as a gift, ans have used it intermittently since then. It is a workhorse, with a lot of power, and handles most things I throw at it pretty well. It has zig zag and a bunch of decorative stitches, several of which I recently figured it are good stretch stitches. It has adjustable presser foot pressure, twin needle capacity, feed dogs that drop -- basic stuff but I was surprised to learn recently that many new machines dont have these things. It's been steady and solid!
What Tyrza does not like about this machine
I am not able to make pretty buttonholes with the four-step buttonholer. May be user error.
I feel like the straight stitch could be more lovely, but again with the user error...
The plate that comes up over the free arm is plastic, and a little flimsy.
It has a tendency to eat fabric when starting out, if it's flimsy. Maybe that is typical -- this is almost the only machine I've ever sewn on!
I did sew on a veery similar Kenmore (this machine was pretty much a Kenmoree knock-off) and I remember there were a few little things I liked better,mso I'm vaguely thinking of upgrading to a Kenmore of the same era or earlier!
