I'm a not-quite-beginner and was using a 20+ year old Bernina that left me frustrated and made me cry each time I sewed on it. Was this an oversell for a novice? I don't think so. It's smooth and easy to use with a ton of great stitches and features. I'm so excited about using this machine that I try something new everyday, and my skills can only grow from here. Thank you, Dana, for showing me this great machine!
