5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the original, May 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Had no problems with Supermart, but this needle threader has been "improved" over the original one I used with the old Kenmore I bought at goodwill. This is one of the threaders where you lay the thread crosswise to the needle, then run it down the needle while gently pushing until the little meal prong pushes the thread through the eye of the needle. Well they cut the slot that the needle slides down deeper than the slot the thread goes in, possibly in order to accomodate hand needles. As a result, the prong has a greater chance to slide out beside the thread, rather than pushing it through the eye. It will work, but you may have to give it a go two or three times to get it done, while the old Kenmore threader works nearly every time. They are still available through Sears, but they are going for about $17. Ouch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for those of us with a foot fetish., April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the best book I've found to date explaining sewing machine feet and how to use them. Not only are the feet described, but also ideas are presented on how to use those feet. There are other areas well explained too, but for me, the feet did it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this sewing machine, but ............, April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I still found a few things to complain about. I admit, I was seduced by all the features. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to sell, trade, or in any way get rid of it. First of all, it is not a heavy duty machine by any standard. It even has problems hemming my trousers. That is why I picked up an older Kenmore from Goodwill and will probably buy a Singer heavy duty machine later this year. Second, it seems a bit more finicky about the tension setting than other machines I've used. I've started keeping a log of the settings I need for various weights of cloth and needle size combinations. So far, all the settings I've needed have all been around 3 to 3.3, but there are more combinations out there than I'll ever use. Still, I love the machine, and with the needle threader and drop-in bobbin, it is remarkably easy to use. So, unless you need a heavy duty sewing machine, give this one a try. You won't be sorry.

I bought two of these and am happy with them. They are perfect for my sewing table and even store my spools of thread, small tools and sewing machine accessories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invisible feet, April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to complete my collection of zipper feet just in case I ever have to sew a zipper. I haven't used it yet, but it appears well made, and identical to the one called out in my sewing machines manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feet.feet.feet etc., April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These worked out pretty well for me, as about a dozen of the feet can be used on my machine. It would help if the seller would indicate the size of each foot so the buyer would know if they fit his 5mm or 7mm machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these nippers., April 15, 2014

These replace a larger nipper that grew legs and vanished during a move. They work well, even on my crusty old toenails. It does help to wash your feet first to soften the nails.

I learned more about sewing machines from this book than any other. It has good, no-nonsense advice and clear descriptions. This is not a book about sewing, this is a book about machines. If you need stitches and patterns, look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Large embroidery/darning foot., April 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this primarily for use darning with my machine, It does work, but the needle and presser foot don't lift high enough to allow the the hoop and fabric to slide underneath so I can sew. I finally wound up taking the darning foot off, then positioning the hoop, and then reinstalling the foot. Needless to say, having a open toe foot is a big help.
