I would like opinions as to whether I should pursue the Scandinavia 400 despite a problem that I saw.
I recently tested a Scandinavia 400 which I believe in its previous life was the Rose. But to my chagrin it skipped stitches on a suede knit fabric. I wanted to play around with the machine to see if an adjustment of some type would work but the clerk was adverse to my efforts. Then the clerk’s boss directed to the floor model of the Platinium 950E. Which was of course very expensive even at the discounted price. But I was not allowed a demonstration on that machine.
I am a little suspicious of my treatment. Why pay for more than I need? The Plat. 950 seems overly complicated to work. In the past, I have heard Viking machines were wonderful. But I would like input on the whether or not, it would be worth my time to to evaluate the Scandinavia 400 at another store? Does this machine typically have problems like this or other limitations?
