Thank you all for your wonderful replies. I went to Joann's and bought the Singer model 1120. Brought it home, then
looked up the reviews on it and of the 3 I found they all hated it. I'm obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
But I didn't know when the sale was over so I bought it just in case.
So I emailed Singer asking them which model they thought would be a good choice for me. It took them 4 days to get back to me - not cool - they suggested model 3116, which Walmart had for $94.00. So we took the 1120 back tonight and got the 3116. It's only a $5.00 difference in price so.....Plus they didn't even acknowledge my remark about the 1120. I even called them twice today and sat on hold the first time for 10 minutes, hung up, called back and sat on hold for over a half hour
Soooooo not cool. That made me quite leary of buying anything from them if it takes an act of God to get them to pick up the phone.
So I checked the reviews tonight on the 3116 and most of them were positive, so I think we're sticking with that one! I'm so excited to start.
