This machine spent 5 years in my mom's quilting business, and I've had it about six months since my mother upgraded. I made 64 masks on it (note the hashmarks on top of the case) in the spring, so maybe it comes with a little good energy. Unlike my mom, I'm not much of a quilter.Shortly after I made the 64th mask, I found an old industrial garment machine, brought it home, and haven't touched this one since. I'm just not using it. I can't speak to the decorative stitches because I never tried them. Straight stitch is good and fairly quick. Walking foot moves fabric efficiently.
Zigzag sometimes looks a little labored. I never got the hang of making nice buttonholes with it, but that may be user error. It was serviced about a year ago. Sewing machines all have their personalities, and Mom and I experienced this one as quirky, not terribly unreliable but slightly harder to deal with, across the board, than any of the other various Janomes and Singers in our fleet.It will sew out of the box, but it's due for maintenance, both because it's been a year and because it did a good bit of work in the course of making those masks, sewing through multiple layers of fabric, and making ear ties when elastic was scarce. I would take it in if I were you. Comes with power cord, foot pedal, and accessories shown. Credo Parts, LLC is a North Carolina small business.
