But after a boring night when I had nothing to read
on January 28, 2015
This sewing machine has been at my side for ten years with not one problem. The threading is idiot proof. So is bobbin winding and insertion. My only problem was user error when I jumped right in and started sewing, without first reading the fact filled instructions. My old machine went straight at warp speed, and you could forget about making gentle curves. If you think I wasn't expecting much, you're right.
But after a boring night when I had nothing to read, I read the booklet through several times, trying to wrap my mind about all the options that this machine offered. If you think the machine is sewing too slowly or quickly, there's a position beneath the computer readout that adjusts to different top speeds, so you don't go faster than you want to. So it's not 100% idiot proof if you don't read the booklet!
Fancy stitches, fancy sewing feet, more is included than with any other machine brand. I quickly went to quilting, learned that zippers are not the work of the sewing devil, and that buttonholes can be made without even looking at the machine! Whenever there's been a problem it was user error, never the machine.
