I stopped, got up to get a pair of scissors at the other end of the table and my machine went berserk and started sewing by itself. I turned the power off but when I tried to turn it back on it wouldn’t go. I’ve got material and a lot of ideas what I need to sew but no sewing machine to get creative on.

  94. I think this would be the perfect entry machine for my daughter, if I was fortunate enough to win it.

  230. I would love to use this to make curtains and cushions for my sons room. For every dress up costume he will ever need. For some new clothes for myself and friends. To have a creative outlet again.

  231. I’m not at all creative, but I’d love to win this so I could do patches and repairs on my clothes. Maybe I’ll work up to actually making things as it sounds a really easy machine to use.
