i bought this machine about 10 months ago, and i have worked that machine about as hard as you could work it. i quilt, and i've made several quilts since i got this machine. overall, i really love it. it's small, it's lightweight, it's portable. it's easy to use. BUT... i realized i was having some tension problems, like other people have mentioned, so i decided to take it in to get a tune up. the place i took it to gave a free estimate, and they said the timing was off. they wanted to charge me almost what i paid for this machine to fix it, and that didn't sit well with me. when i told that to the guy at the repair shop, he said that the problem was that this machine has plastic gears. you mix plastic gears with heavy materials (quilting), then you're going to have problems. thankfully, i got the 2 year replacement plan, so i'm getting a full refund, and i just ordered another machine. the thing is, even with that pretty big issue, i have used it for 10 months with no problems until now. so i ordered the next one up - the CE5500. we'll see how that one does. i've never had a fancy machine, so i really don't know how this compares. all i know is that at this point i'm not prepared to pay the big bucks for a fancy machine.Read More
I didn't use this machine when I first purchased it, so I couldn't return it, and when I finally used it, it could not sew anything slightly heavy duty at all. It is fine for just minimal sewing. Last time I used it the thread pooled under the fabric, the needles kept breaking and it was just a pain to sew on because I make crafts that are different thicknesses. I finally bought another machine that sews all fabrics and thicknesses and it is sooo much nicer! Since this was refurbished when I purchase it, I can't see how repairing it again would help. I would be embarrassed to sell it to anyone for fear it would do the same thing as it did to me, and obviously the person before me.Read More

What other presser feet does it come with?

I am having trouble with the tension on my machine. Is there a way to adjust the tension?
The tension is automatic and controlled by a computer chip in the machine. When thread bunches up on the bottom of the material, it means that the there is a problem with the way the machine is threaded. First lift the presser bar. Then turn the tension dial to zero and then to four. Then thread the machine with the presser foot in the up position. When you get to the part where you thread the needle, lower the presser bar. When you thread the machine, remember to have the presser foot in the up position so that the thread can catch in the tension dial on the inside of the machine. When the presser bar is in the up position it opens the disks. The thread needs to go in between the two disks for the tension to work.
