What do you all think of this machine? http://tippecanoe.craigslist.org/art/1464074969.html

I haven't heard back yet from the seller, so for all I know it's sold (:(). At any rate, is this the sort of thing I should be looking for?

My current machine is a cheapo Singer that works OK, sometimes. The bobbin feed tends to get all messed up after sewing for a while though (normal -> giant knots and jamming over the course of a small project). I made pajama pants the other weekend and it nearly frustrated me to the point of giving up on them.

Does anyone have any book/blog suggestions for learning to alter clothes? I've got a small bust but normal sized hips, so dresses off the rack never fit properly.
