Sewing machines for large group
I live in a active adult community where we have a large sewing arts club. We are planning to purchase 12 new machines for our facility. Right now we have Elnas that are around 30 years old and starting to develop many problems.
Our Committee has established the following criteria so far: drop in bobbin, fits in and attaches to sewing tables, ease of use, straight and zigzag, and makes a good button hole easily. We need real workhorses! that are also very easy to use. Jam free would be a nice addition. All suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
We are planning to buy one to try out for a while and them purchase additional machines if the first is successful. One of the machines under consideration is a Kenmore model 756A-30BH.
