It's suitable for the advanced sewer, but also if you're new to sewing and want a feature packed machine. The Start/ Stop button and slide speed control enable you to control the machine with your hands and without the included foot control. It has a drop in bobbin and an automatic bobbin winder, so you no longer need to wind your bobbins manually. The 5 x 1 step button holes allow you to sew perfect button holes of different sizes. Automatic stitch selection and stitch length and width control make the machine even easier to use. An LED light means that you never need to replace it, and your threads are not discoloured by the yellow sheen of a traditional bulb.

This little gem was perfect, I would even go as far as to say it is fool proof. It worked right out the box, with no more than a cursory glance at the quick start guide, before I was away sewing my first project (cushion covers). The stitches are always neat and the movement as the fabric feeds through is smooth and even. It has three speeds, I found this is very useful for a beginner and also versatile for different projects. I have subjected this machine to almost 2 years hard labour and I sew long hours, daily. Everything from clothes to teddy bears and I have even dabbled with quilting. The machine has never skipped a stitch and keeps up with the demands I make of it with no effort on it's part at all. The throat of the machine is quite small, but don't be deceived, I have had a double quilt through it with only a little bit of awkward manouvering. I also free motioned a smaller quilt and was delighted with the results. My machine was a high street purchase and came with an extension table that I think is availble on Amazon separately.Read more ›
With lots of fancy stitches at the touch of a button.
It has a slow speed which helps when sewing fiddley
things. So easy to thread up but comes with a dvd if you
have any problems.
However there are a few problems. When sewing with a double needle even on the middle speed it tends to drop stitches, the only way to get a perfect double stitch is to go on the slowest speed which is quite frustrating. The machine is also not suitable for shirring. Even when the elastic thread is pulled tight on the bobbin the stitch isn't tight enough. The screw on the bobbin case is so stiff that I'm not able to adjust the tension.
