I needed to sew some trimmings on a coat for my Halloween costume. The jacket is a vintage London Fog coat made of a heavy canvas material. This machine had NO problem sewing through the thick layers.
What impressed me the most is i'd previously been using my mother in law's $800 sewing machine, and after constant adjustment and realignment I still broke 3 needles and had a problem with my backstitching. This machine handled the problem beautifully, and it's only a fraction of the price!
A few things I might note:
The pink is a a little darker than that in the picture. This did not bother me since it's still pink, which is what attracted me in the first place.
I gave it four out of five stars (wish I could give it 4 1/2!) because the machine is so lightweight, a couple of times it wanted to move around while I was readjusting my fabric. This wasn't an issue with the actual sewing and after using it a couple times I figured out how to handle it so it stayed put. I don't think this would be a problem with lighter weight materials.
I noticed other reviewers said they couldn't get the backstitch to go in a straight line. The only time I had this problem was when I was sewing through several thick layers. It was partially my fault because I had the pedal pushed down too far and it kind of jump started the machine and took off. Every other time was no problem, so maybe it's something they're doing?
The instructions were VERY clear. I have very little patience when it comes to instructions and these were a breeze! It's also very helpful that bobbin and needle threading diagrams are etched into the machine itself, for quick reference. I got a bobbin threaded in no time, no hassle.
The speed is perfect for me, it's not too fast but not too slow, I imagine an expert sewer might want something a little faster. For me, it made it that much easier to control my stitching.
I actually got the machine for half price using my Amazon reward points, from my Amazon credit card. I got free shipping and saved $15 more by choosing super saver shipping, and the item arrived after a really reasonable amount of time. I think it's worth waiting an extra two days to save money on shipping!
All in all I would highly recommend this machine to anyone who is inexperienced at sewing, like myself, or for light duty jobs like stitching hems, etc.
I think this would make a perfect gift for a teen/young adult, because it's smaller, lightweight, easily portable, and the pink makes it so charming!
I just started sewing again after taking a sewing class in middle school, and this machine has got me really excited to take it up again.
In addition to the manufacturing/construction issues with this product, this model also does not have a low speed option. The pedal has many speeds, but the slowest is actually quite fast—much too fast to add just one or two more stitches if needed.
This little machine is perfect. Its amazing and affordable and i highly recommend it to anyone learning to sew! Or anyone just looking for a new machine.
We purchased this for our 11 year old daughter who wants to learn to sew. She has already had quite a few lessons from me so she has a general idea about how to sew. This machine is easy for her to understand, easy to thread and light enough in weight that she could easily pick it up.
The only thing we don't like is the direction booklet because it has two languages together and this is a bit of a bother to have to stop and find the language you need. It slows you down a bit. We are going to highlight the English portion for our daughter.
All and all this is an amazing sewing machine. It is sturdy, functional and fun. A great buy for the money. Very Happy with this product. Thanks brother you did it again!!
