Pros: Easy To Use

Best Uses: Home, Sewing Projects

Describe Yourself: Novice

Was this a gift?: No

I took this out of the box and all I needed was thread. The instructions for some things are very easy to follow, and for other things you may need to figure out what they mean. I do not know my way around a sewing machine, and I got myself going.

One thing I had difficulty with was the bobbin. It was threaded, but had no tension. It wasn't grabbing what it needed to grab under the little plastic guide. I had a sewing teacher come and take a look. She played with the machine for quite a while after solving the bobbin issue and proclaimed it to be a really nice machine.

I am thrilled with the wealth of options provided with this machine. It included several different feet - even one for doing a rolled edge. I am sure this will suit all my sewing needs for a long time.



  1. I don't sew, but really wish I did :( Thanks for stopping by! Following you back on GFC and twitter!

  2. I've been on the hunt of a new machine that I can quilt on-- It's a big step for me (my current machine is 50 years old!) but I'm getting closer to making a decision.
    Glad you're figuring your out! I hope you're making something fun!

  3. I'm outrageously jealous of you. I bought a handi-stitch once but I couldn't figure out how to start it.
