Went to donate a few a things to the Goodwill the other day. Decided to go in and see what they had in the sewing things sometimes I get zippers and trims. Well there she sat calling to me. I had plugged it in and it did not work but I tried another outlet and still she did not purr. I asked if it does not work could it be brought back?, yes just keep your receipt and you have 7 days. Well for the $4.59 I said ring her out. I brought it home and the needle was broke so I checked to be sure it was not stuck in the bobbin , then put a new one in. I threaded it up and filled a bobbin and tried again to get it to work. I did get a little engine noise and couple stitches. I kept pushing on the foot pedal and finally I found the area that needed to be push it works great! Here is MS Jan as I call her. I am sure one of my grands will want to sew on it soon. Well worth my $ and a pittance at that! check her out she also does zig zag stitches and straight stitches. what a deal!
