For me they are Machines that Sew, not Sewing Machines.
Soon after I began making shoes I realized that I had to learn to sew leather.
The next question then was what type of machine.
As a result I have another hobby... Vintage sewing machines.

Kenmore 385 "30 Stitch"
The Kenmore 385.1884180 is a Janome made machine with their outstanding rotary hook system, I am very impressed with this machine; wish I had stumbled across them earlier.
It is a: durable, reliable, clean, quiet, and very smooth running with utility and decorative stitches
My stitch test was easy - easy a fun machine.
You know those Kenmore's when they got it right they really got it right, I think this is one of them.
