When I moved from Scotland to the US, I took my Brother sewing machine with me, unfortunately it just didn't do well with the transformer etc, and just upped and died on me. I was on the hunt for a new machine that was reasonably priced, but better than the one I had. I scoured reviews, websites and prices, and finally decided to go with this one.

I cant even describe how happy I am that I did. I'm one of those; let's play with it now, and read the instructions if we cant figure something out kind of gal. I was up and running in a matter of minutes. I had no problems with winding bobbins and was amazed with the thread loading cassette. It's light, easy and has a truck load of different stitches!!! The only thing that I think is missing (although it could just be that I haven't found it yet) is a straight satin stitch for applique.

I had a read through the manual and everything was easy to read and understand, no problems there either. If you're looking for a machine that can be used happily by anyone from beginner to advanced, and you want lots of stitch options this is the one to get!

I still cant believe the price when you compare it to the quality and functions of the machine... FANTASTIC!!!

First of all, I will admit that I am a sewing machine junkie. I own about 8 Janome/NewHome machines, 3 sergers, and a Brother PE150 embroidery machine. I wanted a small, computerized, lightweight machine to travel with and take to classes. Since this was to be strictly my portable machine, I didn't want to spend alot of money.After reading the specs and features of the machine I decided to take a chance and buy it at Walmart. After all, they have a liberal return policy, and if I didn't like it I could return it....no questions asked.

What a surprise!! This machine comes loaded with features that usually are only found in top of the line machines. For instance; elonagtion of satin stitches, memory capability, mirror imaging of decorative stitches. It has a nice stitch package, and really the only thing that could improve it would be a built in alphabet. The buttonholes are easy, and come out perfect every time. Since I also do quilting, free motion stitching is important to me, and this machine handles it great. The only thing I will not attempt on it would be huge bulky bed sized quilts, as there is not alot of room to the right of the needle bed.

I know some people have had issues with the thread cassette, and bobbin winder. But as with all electronics you need to read the manual. The thread cassette comes with an adapter and will accomodate small spools to large embroidery sized cones. But it will not fit serger sized cones. The cassette perfectly threads the needle EVERY time. A real plus, as some needle threaders on my other machines are rather tempermental. The bobbin winder is also different than on other machines. The tension mechanism must be pushed all the way back for the bobbin to wind correctly.

I bought this machine over 8 months ago and have been continually suprised at all of its great features. After doing a lot of research on different brands and models I settled on this machine and haven't regretted my decision. There is definitely some learning involved in winding a bobbin. You have to make sure the thread sits in the middle of the bobbin before it starts winding. I also occassionaly have to use my finger to guide the thread to make sure it winds evenly. However, this is no big deal and I've read where many others have to do this on machines that cost a great deal more.

The stitch quality is wonderful and with over 120 stitches to choose from I am able to always find one that suits my needs. The display offers a help menu with pictures if I need assistance.

I mostly sew home dec items and clothing and this machine has handled it all.

Verified Purchase
First, thank you to the reviewers before me, your comments and hints helped a lot! :-)

The machine is awesome! So many decorative stitches! I took a couple of hours to read the manual which is very clear and easy to understand/follow. Then took off, tried some simple straight stitches, some decorative stitches and then wound up a new bobbin. No problem!

This machine is quiet, sleek and easy to use. A real bargain for the price!

After much searching for the perfect sewing machine at a reasonable price, I chose this machine. I did have difficulty winding the bobbin at first; the thread was too loose and not evenly distributed on the bobbin. I want to thank reviewers for their tips on how to correct the problem. When I finally opened the bobbin winder cover as far back as it would go, the bobbin threaded perfectly. Using the cassette for the upper thread was a breeze and worked great the first time, including the automatic needle threading. Am anxious to learn how to use the wide variety of stitches. Though I've had this machine for only a short time, I would highly recommend it.

I am soooo happy I purchased this machine. For all of you reading about problems with the bobbin winder DO NOT worry about it. Just follow the directions and it is a piece of cake. I have had no problems with my machine what so ever and it is sooo quick to learn. I really can't understand what all the fuss is over with the bobbin. This machine is super quiet and runs like a charm. You have optional foot pedal or stop and go right on the machine. Look around the Net and see what kind of prices you can find, I paid $199.00 for mine, ya can't beat that.This is alot of machine for the price, if you have been thinking about it I suggest you go for it, you won't regret it.
