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!!!
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.Read 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.
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!
