Love My 1600P-QC
Thursday, May 5, 2016

This is my favorite machine! I am hard on machines and this keeps up with me - making hats, sewing garments or piecing quilts. I like to sew fast sometimes and this can do it well. I love the straight stitch only - the bobbin stitches look as nice as the top ( you don't get that with the electronic machines). I am in process of getting all I need to do FMQ with rulers and hope that I still am thrilled with this machine!
Wonderful Machine
