LEMON! The stitching is not consistent even though its been tuned twice! (5 months old)
on May 15, 2014
This machine seemed to have so much potential.
I've sewn projects for more than 20 years and have never met a grumpier / touchier machine.
Since receiving the machine on Christmas, I've sewn a shirt, a bag and started on a quilt (using the recommended needles and threads). Throughout each project the stitching was perpetually inconsistent and I had to work with the tension after each time the machine was turned ON. I've cleaned, dusted and oiled several times - even though I've only had the machine these past five months and only worked on three projects listed.
Its been professionally tuned TWICE and taken to a local sewing class for troubleshooting (at a local tech college - and with the manual). The professional said this machine was designed (mechanically) in a way that made "tying on the corners" impossible. I didn't wholly believe him because he also had product to sell. Well, after the tech college review, I've given up hope. Right now it is not catching on the bottom and changing the tension isn't helping (yes, I'm following the instructions in the manual).
Its too late to return - so I will keep working with it. But I'm incredibly disappointed. This was a lot of money for our family. I'm heartsick about the wasted money.
