Is this machine too much for a very very beginner?
I'm 47 years old and just now getting the urge to learn to sew (simple summer dresses). So, I'm looking for a machine I can handle, that's easy to use, and I can grow with. I want this to be my first and only machine. Would this machine be too advanced for me????

no, I think this is perfect for a beginner
The 44S Classic could be great for a beginner. It has all the basic stitches that makes up 95% of all sewing time. The top drop-in bobbin is easy to use. An automatic 1-step buttonhole will be great for a beginner and experianced sewing. A Quick-Start Guide will introduce you to your machine and be a useful tool if you need a reminder on how to do something in the future.
The only caution - it does have a strong motor and can sew faster then the machines you might have used back in high school. But, if this is the first machine you have ever owned & used on a regular basis, you should have no problem with it. You will get used to the speed and strength quickly.
