I finally had the chance to open the machine and really get a look at it. It's amazing! As you can see in the pictures the way you change the stitches to fancy stitches is by changing the dics in the top of the machine. Under that flip lid on the top. There are many different discs for all types of fancy stitches. Perfect to use in making the Crazy Quilts. It's going to be such fun to experiment with these different discs.
