You may be new to sewing, or maybe you are looking for a sewing machine that's easy to use, if so, the Innov-is 10 is the perfect choice. The 'jog dial' makes it very simple to select stitches you require quickly, and needle threading is complete in no time thanks to the built-in needle threader. With the LCD screen you can see at a glance information about the stitch width and length. Simplicity does not mean a compromise on features - there are 16 stitches to choose from, including 3 different buttonholes, to give that professional looking finish.

This is a tactile and pretty looking machine. It is VERY easy to use. I have never had a proper machine before and was extremely anxious about not being able to figure out how to use the machine - I was dreading the threading process and having to change the sewing foot and the needle. I have to say, if you buy this machine you're never going to have to worry about these things because it is just so user-friendly. There threading steps are numbered on the actual machine and for everything else, the manual is very easy to follow. I can make a real mess of instructions sometimes so the fact that I haven't with this machine just goes to show how easy this machine is to use.
Some of the functions I love on this machine are the electronic speed limiter and the start/stop sew button: you just press the button and it will auto sew for you - all you have to do is guide the material around. You don't have to use the foot with this machine so it's great if you're worried about whether you can actually control the machine or not! There is also a freestitch option at the back of the machine if you want to 'draw' with your machine - quite fun when you get the hang of it!
The two things I am not so pleased about is the stitch types you get with the machine and the reliability of the actual stitches when selected. You get a choice of 16 stitches which includes 3 button hole styles and you can vary the size and closeness of the stitch which is great.Read more ›
i am disappointed with the quality of stitches, it has a tendency to loop under the fabric after a lot of use (i've had the machine for a year now and its started doing this more and more often, and so have the machines at school.) the machine also unthreads itself a lot and catches the fabric.
the machines really have their own personality because some days they will stitch perfectly and others it will just be impossible! this is very frustrating!
overall, i would recommend this machine to someone that only needs it for occasional use and small projects. i use mine almost every day and it certainly isnt a happy machine. the ones at school are exactly the same way. i do admire the simplicity of the machine and how easy it is to use. the threader works very well. its a shame that the stitches are a bit temperamental because its a lovely machine apart from that.
* the automatic needle threader (yay!);
* the easy to drop-in bobbin in a see-through casing;
* not only a foot-operated engine but an alternative push-button automatic sewing option
* one-step button hole
* a good range of dressmakers' stitches - not only zig zag and straight, but blind hem, stretch, buttonhole, reinforcement and overlocking stitches.
I find that it's a dependable asset when I want to just thread up, start up, do a quick test with my materials, and get going. With the right needle and the right thread, it performs well on a wide range of fabrics, although I haven't tested it on chiffon or silk yet. It's easy to get at the gubbins to clean out the lint and fluff and.... well, it's just easy, easy, easy to master.
I'm now at the stage where I am considering upgrading from this not-so-basic beginner's machine, but I'll be keeping this one too.
