Does anyone know anything about this machine?

(or go to www.vermontcountrystore.com and search for "sewing
machine").

I don't want to buy it (I have three Singers, ranging in age from 55
to 100 years).  I'm just curious to know about a "professional" s.m.,
and for what market Singer makes these (other than the Vermont Country
Store).

All reports I've heard say it's a sheep in wolf's clothing.  It's
supposed to rival the Bernina 950 commercial machine.  It doesn't come
close to the domestic 1008...  As it's half the price of the Bernina
1008, you can bet it's half the quality.
