I was able to purchase the persona from my aunt. I love it! I had a small learning curve (my aunt did not live close by) but I caught on very quickly. It is so much fun to use and very versatile. I have done many projects in just three months. If you can purchase this machine you will have no regrets, I promise. (Purses, totes, baby clothes, hats, backpacks and sweatshirts. The list is endless.
