If you put together elaborate stitches, it's also very easy to modify the needle inside of this model. The presser foot can certainly stitch bulky fabrics. With lots of stitch alterations, you are able to sew easier.

Gain great control using the flexible length and width in the final stitch size. Like various other modern day sewing machines, this one runs quiet and requires significantly less routine maintenance than older style machines.

The free arm on the Viking 230 enables you to sew things like pant leg holes. When you need to make this happen, little else comes close to being as useful as a free arm.
