Love the folks at Pomona Sew & Vac. These folks know their stuff. Did a lot of research online and email communication for a larger sized hoop than my original 4x4 and this was the one! I purchased this at their store right before the COVID-19 virus hit so my complimentary class had been cancelled. This machine was purchased at the right time and kept me busy creating and having fun. I’m self taught through You Tube and FB groups and I have to say this machine while felt intimidating at first with its size, wow! So user friendly and easy to use. Ive been even creating my own You Tube videos sharing how easy it is to use. It’s an investment but a good one. Ive been selling my creations thru Facebook which has helped me making extra payments. They have a great interest free program to purchase on credit and i cannot say enough about what happiness this machine has brought to my life. Thank you Pomona Sew & Vac. Ill be back as soon as you are safe to open again. It’s worth the hour drive! Stay Safe!
