In 2005, with the money from my first real(ish) job (data capturing…wow not fun) I bought this rather basic machine with the dream of being a fashion designer.
The next 8 years saw one distraction after another. No matter how hard I worked, there was always some excavation more interesting than sewing.
Due to my inherent laziness, I almost always sew over horizontal pins. This caused (for the hundredth time) a head-on collision between the machine needle and the pin, throwing the timing of the retracting arm out so badly I couldn’t fix it myself.
Fortunately an entire section of our society makes a living off fixing such problems, and after a week in the hands of some anonymous person, Jeri returned to her place of honour as the primary sewer of Saccaggi.
15 stitch functions (40 if you count the set zig zag widths and the twin needles),
Removable bed for easy cuff sewing;
And over all best friend!! Good to have you back Jeri, 2 motor replacements and a hundred services on, still my most dependable companion.
