    I have purchased many items that have been refurbished, with great luck. I purchased this machine as a back up to my good one. I used it four times. the last time was a 4 day quilting retreat. It go some hard use that weekend. On the second day of the program I got an F6 message on this 6 month old seldom used machine. F6 states "take it in for repair". For a machine to go bad that quickly and I was not quilting anything but sewing seams. I don't want it, I am awaiting my credit for the machine at present (luckily I spent an additional 15.00 for insurance on it). Will I buy another refurb? I do not know yet.

  • sewing machine

    I use this machine daily for 5 hours or more. It is good for most everything except sewing heavy weight fabrics like denim and sherpa. I came from using a 70s model singer and wouldn't easily switch back. My only real complaint is the people I purchased this from are not easy to get ahold of, and there were parts missing from my machine. No bobbins or presser foots. I still have not been able to contact them.

  • What a find!

    OK, I'm "old school," so getting used to a machine with a plastic body instead of the steel and aluminum of my 30+ year-old clunker I bought as a starving college student took some getting used to. The upper part of the machine threads easily and, when you get the hang of the needle threader, it's a kick!. The bobbin just drops in. Winding a bobbin is easy and quick. The electronics allow a wide adjustment and tweaking of all of the included stitches. The machine came with a wide variety of presser feet. The machine indicates which foot to use for the selected stitch. All-in-all, it's a great little machine. It retails for $250 on Amazon.

  • Brother Runway Machine

    I was a little worried to buy a reconditioned sewing machine, but I have no regrets! I LOVE this machine! I am super happy with it. I've tried out all the stitches/buttonholes and am in love with this machine. After fighting with my very old machine for a couple of years, now, it is finally a pleasure to sew again! Smooth and quiet. My kids love that they don't have to turn up the television when I start sewing like they did with my old machine. I highly reccommend this model!

  • Great machine!

    I used this machine shortly after it arrived to make flip flops! It sewed through four layers of heavy materials without a hitch! It is a little powerhouse! The only thing I have had issues with is the threader sometimes hangs up and won't flip around to catch the thread. Other than that I am VERY happy with it.
