Customer Testimonials

"Just a quick letter to let you know how pleased I have been with my 9" straight stitch. This walking foot machine is a work horse that has saved me thousands of dollars. It started out as a hobby making my own Boat covers, now it's a small part time business. I have enclosed some pics of my work.. - Todd Rubright
