Okay, Thanks Dan! No wonder you are so knowledgeable, you own lots of great machines.
My friend has the Consew 224r, or 226r with the g bobbin and I liked it so much. She has had it for many years without much fuss. I used it when my main machine was down, but it is up and running again. Actually, I did not seem to be bothered too much with the small bobbin on her machine, I had a bunch ready to go while I was sewing. So, maybe I'll go get the 211. Thanks again and have a great day!
