New Blue Machine
At Goodwill in Waterville, I came across this rockin' bluish-teal beauty of a machine. Made in Japan and named "General" it sports a 1.5 amp motor (whoo-hoo! Thats powerful baby!) and from what I can tell is a "full size" machine. Singer's 99 is a 3/4 machine, for example. It does a nice straight stitch (no timing issues) and the feed dogs drop, for darning or free motion stitching. Hopefully the free motion bit will work. I haven't tried yet.This machine has won my heart with it's smooth quiet power. I know the picture isn't so great, but as we only have dial-up internet in our humble little home, no big sharp pics for us. Not yet anyway.
