I've been doing some kind of sewing for as long as I could hold a needle and thread. My first experience with a Sashiko-like stitch was on my Grandma's quilts. For anyone who has seen the hand-stitching technique known as Sashiko, you'll be amazed that there's a machine that can replicate this distinctive stitch. This sweet, simple, but elegant stitch can embellish almost anything. From garments to home decor to quilting–once I get started with this machine I can't stop! – Evy Hawkins Author, Teacher, Designer

- Create short or long stitches ranging from 2mm to 5mm using the adjustable lever. Create short or long spaces with adjustable spacing from 2mm to 5mm.
