Beginner friendly, and not to be "out grown" as it does much more than just the basics. Metal frame, yet light enough to carry with one arm, so truly portable, yet heavy enough to not hop when sewing. This is a household sewing machine designed to sew a variety of fabrics such as denim, swim suit stretch, dress cotton, polyester, chiffon and as its name implies it performs 12 stitches, including a serging stitch, and several stretch stitches all at just the turn of one selector dial and choose the length and the machine does the rest. This is an all mechanical, no electronics to go bad and no software updates needed. Designed to sew a variety of fabrics including denim, swim suit stretch, dress cotton, polyester, chiffon. Center needle justified, double needle capable, extra high lift pressure foot feature. It comes with zig zag presser foot and an adapter so that economical quick change presser feet can be used. Also included is the control foot pedal and integrated power cord. This machine has been sewn with (made a tote bag) and performs as it should. A demonstration can be provided upon request.

Kenmore Ultra Stitch 12, completely serviced (last week of May 2019), including new grease in gear box, tested for sewing each stitch is as it should be (see photo of the stitches) tension is balanced, winds bobbin. Straight, zig zag and a variety of utility (blind hem, variety of stretch stitches) sews like near new.
