    Is this a good sewing machine?

    I want to get into DIY but know next to nothing about sewing machines. Today at Goodwill I saw a Kenmore 385.12332 10 stitch (all metal) in excellent condition for under 10 bucks. Is this a fairly decent machine? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Yes, I got it. Paid $8.99 for it. They said if it doesnt work ok to bring it back for a refund. Cant beat that.
