This review is from: Sewing Machine 404, 170 Stitches, Alphabet, £150 accessories: Quilting Extension Table, Walking Foot, Hard Case, 13 Feet, 24 Moon Thread, 5 Scissors (Kitchen & Home)
A very solidly built and easy to use machine for the tasks I have used it for so far. As was suggested in previous reviews the instructions are absolutely useless and a novice sewing machinist would be a little bewildered. The lcd screen is an interesting development in the modern machine and I like the suggestions for choice of presser foot and the graphic showing stitch width and length. The automatic clutch release for the bobbin winder is neat but do be careful of the thread going below the bobbin when winding at speed! There are many features that look useful but I haven't tried yet such as the numerous styles of buttonhole and some of the stretch stitches. However straight stitch, zig-zag and hemming are a breeze. I have always preferred a drop in bobbin so that is a bonus.Quilting has been done very easily with a wide opening so bulky materials can be dealt wit. The thick layers were very well coped with. The extension table is solid and robust but a little fiddly to attach 'till you get used to it, Altogether very pleased with the machine. A good product at an excellent price.
