Default My new Toyota

I've never had a new sewing machine and I'm tired of using three clunkers to do everything I need, so I did a search for heavy duty machines on amazon and came up with a Toyota!

I ordered it last week and got it Saturday. I never knew Toyota was making sewing machines a couple of years before they started making cars - but they did, are and do. And they're not light plastic junkers like a lot of the new machines being made.

This is the one I got:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's not fancy, doesn't have a computer and "only" has 21 stitches. But it does everything I need, doesn't jump around on the table and seems quiet. I haven't tried heavy materials yet, but the reviews say that it doesn't even slow down for many layers of denim.

I'm excited about my new Toyota!

Congrats on your new machine.... Feels good to try out and use all the things it will do...

I know it is fun to use the stuff on my old machine that it is capable of doing now that I got it tuned up... Even if my projects are not as nice or fancy as your capable of...

You will have to post pictures of your projects... (hint,hint nudge,nudge)
Enjoy

Congratulations on you new machine.
Work goes so much easier when you have good tools.
"No Computer" That is a good thing !

Watching his video review answered the question. https://youtu.be/ZlM9ppQxeiI 1 - 4 ARE the button holes !
I watched mom do that on her Singer one time. Fascinating ! It works. So much easier than trying to stitch that by hand.
