Can you believe at $34.99? HELL YEAH! I have been wanting one in like, forever, but couldn't justify spending $200+ for one. Came across this at my local Goodwill last week and took a chance on it after making sure the power cord made the needle run. From what I deduced from searching for a manual online, is that this is an 80's model. The manual was a free download. Took me a while to figure out how to thread it (quite a bit more challenging than a regular sewing machine), but IT WORKS! Yay me! I think I can try my hand at sewing knits now. More to follow.
