I'm a complete newbie to sewing machines. After much researching I choose this one as it seemed it would be basic but not too basic and was a great price I felt to what I saw elsewhere. Within minutes I was actually sewing after threading the machine on my first attempt. There was some cotton on a loaded bobbin from the testing of the machine but again I was well away after one attempt of filling a bobbin on the machine. I'm on to my first quilt project already!!!
Just love this new machine. I have used it more in a month than my old one was in a year. It (for me) is really easy and light to carry on one hand. My old Jones machine really needs two people to carry it as it is so heavy. The sewing on this machine is smooth sailing and easy to use. Not used all the stitch options yet but I am sure I will. Will definitely recommend to anyone.
