I am going to teach my 17 year old sister how to sew, so I like that it is great for beginners. It looks just as pictured and has everything I need. It comes with all the tools, the needles, and the footers. It was easy to setup and start sewing within 20 minutes of me opening the box. You have more than enough to choose from with the 25 stitches. I have not personally use them all but I like that most are great for any sewing project. I knew what I was doing but for those who don't it does come with instructions. The instructions touch base on everything from how to thread the bobbin, drop it in place, to picking the right stitch for the fabric you're working with. I would highly recommend this.
I recommend this machine to anybody and everybody who is just starting out. Even if you are not too keen on spending a lot on something like this, you will not regret it. Very user friendly.
As a beginner, my point of view may be different and I might appreciate different things about this model than those who are more seasoned in the craft. This is a mechanical machine and I like that because it won't do anything that you didn't specifically tell it to do and when you're learning, it's nice to be forced to learn from the nitty gritty. You control the speed, you control needle position manually. Now that I have fumbled my way around and know what all the dials mean, I don't mind a computerized machine doing it for me, but for learning, I think this model suits beginners best.
Comparing my limited experience on this machine vs. a ~$600 Pfaff that I used in class from time to time, yes, the xl2600i definitely has its limitations. The bobbin thread/tension that many other reviewers mention is a bit fussy, but I've learned to work with it and eventually it's less of a problem. It does have a tendency to lose the top thread if you cut the thread too short and then resume sewing. The xl2600i does have its limits on the amount of fabric you can push under the presser foot because it doesn't go very high. You'll have to make sure your needle is sharp and you might have to tug your fabric sandwich a wee bit to help the feeders along if you try to stuff many layers through. But in terms of doing what it's advertised to do -- this sewing machine performs as well as you would want it to and for the money, you really can't get anything close to the performance of this model.
I haven't had to use any of the decorative stitches but I've done plenty of straight stitching of various lengths, zigzagging, and even tried out some blind hem stitches. The machine cranks out perfect stitches. I've had jams that made monstrous noises which made me think for sure I had broken my little $80 machine, but to date all of the jams were all my fault (newbie mistakes like bobbin placement errors, threading mistakes, using the wrong type of thread, dismantling the parts underneath the cover and reassembling the parts incorrectly...). The machine was forgiving and once I corrected the issues, it continued to chug away flawlessly. A friend of mine who is also a beginner, has the same machine and the very first thing she did on her machine was break the needle into 4 pieces over her zipper foot. Well, no worries, the machine continued to work once we replaced the needle and adjusted the stitch width setting. From what I can tell, the machine, though an economy purchase, is built to withstand a beating from beginners, and built to last.
I highly recommend this machine for anyone who wants to take up sewing. It's not a ton of money to invest and you'll get a quality machine with all the essentials you need to do quite a lot.
