One of the big, driving forces for Gene to encourage me in the investment was language. Yes, language. My less than stellar language when attempting to use the newer, inexpensive Singer machine. I cursed. I yelled. I cried in frustration at thread backlash. Skipped stitches would bring torrents of condemnation on the poor, needing repair machine. I had recommendations for places to put the machine like landfills, ditches and dumpsters.
