 This sewing machine is a Rachel....and she is fabulous.  I've sewn on a Baby Lock Rachel numerous times and it runs like a dream.  It has an easy to load, drop in, bobbin, over 50 different stitch selections, a computerized screen, and a built in needle threader that will spoil you rotten.  And I'm envious of whomever is going to win her!!!
