It has a wide throat area for quilting large quilts and a wide variety of embroidery stitches. It has an ingenious attachment for sewing button holes. The button is put into position in the special foot, select the buttonhole switch and the buttonhole is stitched according to the size of the button! The magnetic pin thingy is my own and didn't come with the machine. It comes from Day Style Designs in the USA.
It came with a flatbed table with a handy little drawer in which to keep the accessory box and spare bobbins. Thank goodness for the knee lifter which I had got so used to on my Bernina.
There are canvass pockets on either side, inside and out, for storing manuals and other whatnots!
Here is a side view showing the pockets on the side. I have placed the table up against my original long table which gives a bigger area when quilting large quilts.
Here is a view of my sewing room - rather untidy though! My 45 year old Elna Automatic still sews beautifully and I use it for piecing when my new one is set up for free motion quilting. The gate-legged table in the corner opens up to give me more surface area when quilting.
I am one spoiled girl and I hope to produce some stunning quilts in time for everyone to enjoy!
