DD (age 5) wants a machine. Badly. I am on my Bernina all the time and she wants her own. She has designed a few little outfits for her dolls, and hand sews them. but she gets frustrated hand sewing them, i think a nice slow, non-electric machine would be great for her.

I want to find an old hand crank (probably from ebay) for her to use. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't think I want chain-stitch. Thx. j

My dd is six and she has had a hand crank for a while. Look for a 3/4 model not full size so that she can easily reach from the wheel with one arm to the needle with the other arm ok to guide her fabric.

The Singer 128 is a smaller version of the 127. I think the 99 is a smaller version of the 66 so that might be one to look out for too.
