Sonata 6680C Sewing Machine
The Sonata 6680C was a most pleasant surprise. We think this machine is more fun to operate than any other machine that we now have. In fact, if we had a grandchild that we wanted to give a machine to, this would probably be our first choice. It has lots of capabilities that would stimulate creativity and keep them occupied for hours/years.
When we brought the machine home from a thrift store, it wouldn't run. Since it was an electronic model that we had zero experience with, we wondered if we had done the right thing. Luckily, the problem was isolated to a loose wire in the foot control. Jim knew he was on the right track for finding the problem when he shorted the foot control leads together and the motor ran at max speed!
This is our first and only operational electronic machine. This is our only machine that stops with the needle in the up position, and we are beginning to appreciate this single feature. It also is our only machine with a transparent slide plate that enables one to see amount of bobbin thread remaining without opening the slide plate and this reduces the number of surprise
