This machine sewed great for a couple of months, then just after the warranty was up it quit entirely. I took it to a sewing machine dealer and he said it would cost $89 to fix but told me privately that he wouldn't invest the money in this particular machine. He said the insides were so cheaply made that it is not durable and the gears would break again. I am trying to figure out whether to get it fixed or not. I am very dissipointed. I wish I had bought a simpler, more durable but more expensive machine to begin with.
