      This is a good hub. I couldn't vote, because I bought a Viking at a Husgavana Viking store. They are a bit more expensive, but I have been really happy with mine. Right now, I don't sew garments. Since our Walmart quit selling them, I haven't found an inexpensive enough source.

      You ought to add some sewing supplies from Amazon here. I'm sure there are people that would purchase them.

      Wow, what a helpful Hub! I haven't sewn in years, but I really enjoyed it when I had a machine. I used to make curtains, pillow covers and furniture slipcovers. Loved your photos and instructional text. Maybe it's time for me to buy a new sewing machine! :)

      Thank you for your comment. I like your curtains. I am sure they are strong. The same like the sewing machine does. It takes a lot of time to sew by hand. Thank you.
