Perfect for beginners or travel
on April 4, 2012
My mother-in-law bought this machine for my 7-year-old daughter. We wanted a smaller machine for her to learn on, but all the 'toy' machines are such awful junk we went for this one. I'm so glad we did! I'm an avid seamstress and have an old-school pfaff, but I have to admit I've been stealing her machine more and more frequentlym especially when I go out to sew!
It's lightweight, making it perfect for travelling, for pulling out for a quick repair, and for young learners.
It's super easy to use. My daughter learned quickly how to sew with it and works on her own now.
It's SO cute. Adorable. Why can they make full sized machines this darling?
It's very good quality and sews like a dream. The sound is uniform and smooth and the stitch quality is excellent. No complaints from us and we've had it over a year!
This doesn't do 'fancy' stuff. If you want a machine with fancy stitch capabilities and plan on becoming a professional seamstress, this could not be your only machine. But I still think this is an excellent second machine for an expert seamstress.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase and recommend it to anyone.
As for the review that said it only has one speed, I haven't found this to be any different from any other machine I've used. If you push the pedal in all the way, it goes fast. Just a light push results in a slow speed.
