That's what we were told in our class too. I bought my machine from JoAnn's-it was actually another company that has a space in JoAnn's, but they offer free classes for life for my machine. I just did the sewing and am going to do the embroidery in a few weeks. A few times, I knew more about the machine than the lady did who was teaching the class (she wasn't threading it right, etc) but overall, I learned a lot. I think a lot of it was way over my head because they were teaching things that I didn't know where to begin on (like a blind hem), but....I'm glad I did it so that if I had to do it again, I may remember SOMETHING about it. I did learn a lot that I could use now though, but I think if I took it again, I would be able to pull more out of it since I know my machine better. I'm dying for the embroidery class because that is the reason I bought my dang machine, but I just haven't had any time to figure it out on my own although I hope to do some of that before my class so I somewhat know what I'm doing!
