Brought this as an early Christmas present for myself. Never been majorly into sewing, but did a lot of textiles at college, and figured I could get back into it as a hobby. Therefore for the price, this is a great machine for me to start up on.

Could only remember a few bits about setting the machine up, but the diagrams were clear and easy to understand. Threaded my bobbin, threaded the machine, tested the tension in about 10mins and was ready to go. Still going through the different stitches, its a shame they don't provide you with a sheet that tells you each one. I know some of the stitches but still having to figure out a few others. It's nice and compact, so much smaller… Read more
Hemline Plastic Coloured Head Extra Long Sewing/Cr&hellip by Hemline
I brought them because I wanted something colourful and a good size to use, however I found these are a little bigger than I imagined so on fabric that is very fine you can actually see where the material has been pinned. If your doing applique like me and need to pin complex shapes onto other fabric, you can imagine that you end up with quite a lot of holes!

Other than that, does what it says on the tin! Don't like the round tub they're in, I feel like I have to physically pull at it to open them, and I'm scared I'm going to jab myself with pins everytime...which I usually do! But other than that, good for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I need, 12 Dec 2013
Cheap and cheerful. Decent quality, not too expensive, great for all types of materials. Work really well pinning anything that's broken. Use them when sewing/crafting and all sorts! Don't really like the tub it comes in though, would rather make my own/buy one as I like to have things in their own separate tubs.
