you get trained? I have barely touched one at my daughter's and she had to keep telling me over and over what to do. I want to get one but need someone to teach me that is extremely patient and willing to repeat repeat repeat. Once I get a machine down I'm fine but machines and me have NEVER mixed. I still have a sewing machine in the box my mom bought me a few years before she died in 1990..never could get it threaded and set up on a consistant basis, got fed up and quit. Think a student would be a good source?
