However! Although it fulfilled its promises in the self-threading and ease of use the foot pedal was a nightmare! It sped at the speed of light - completely uncontrollable. So unfortunately I had another 30€ to pay for a replacement food pedal I bought from the Singer agent in our nearest town.
it would be perfect, except it was defective. made in china.... i got two of these at different times, both were defective. .. my high hopes for a simple sewing machine were crushed. poor excuse for a SINGER
