My Newest Juki Purchase. The Frou Frou HZL-11.

The Frou Frou was released in 1977 for 69,000 yen (roughly $650) as a lightweight, compact sewing machine

One of the amazing features of this machine was the horizontal hook. A rare feature as lightweight sewing machines at that time used vertical hook.

Besides straight stitch, the HZL-11 has the ability to create horizontal stitches. ( zig zag ) Perfect for tailoring your pantsuit or bell-bottoms!

One of the few I have ever seen in Yellow.  I have come across some in White .  I wouldn’t mind to own a white one as well.
