Not worth the $20
on July 8, 2005
I bought this at a local store for $20. It seemed cute, so I bought it.
My daughter was so excited to open the box! Last night, when we did, I realized what a piece of junk it was. It only sews one stitch length, so don't bother sewing anything but your basic cotton calico type fabrics (and it has trouble sewing through 4 layers, so don't think for a minute you're actually going to hem over a seam), it has no zig-zag, so don't plan on washing anything your child sews (the material will unravel) and it only speed control it has is low or high (the low speed could be scary for beginning adults, even) The presser foot has no pressure control, just on or off. The thread breaks constantly, the tension doesn't really adjust and the presser foot is so low in th "up" position that it's difficult to get the fabric under it.
I am returning it today.
Don't waste your $40, it's not even worth $20... I am highly considering getting an inexpensive full size machine instead.
