I was skeptical about buying a "refurbished" item but it operates just like new. Was in original packaging with all attachments. So good that I already finished sewing a crib skirt for my Grandaughter due in June. No sewing problems at all!
Excellent machine!!! Love your refurbished models they work well and are very reliable for a very long period of time. I have at least two of your machines for back-up @ all times. This particular machine can sew through many layers of fabric, It has all metal internal parts. Is a simple machine and is good for all levels of sewing knowledge.
I have never used a sewing machine. I love sewing by hand. But I had some upcoming projects that required me to get one.not only was it the perfect price. Loved that it came with a dvd to show you how to put it together. Cause I had no clue and I am a visual learner!!! even though it refurbished I couldn't tell. Well worth it.
I've ordered a number of items from Overstock.com in the past few years and have always been more than happy; however, I have to say that I'm disappointed with this factory reconditioned sewing machine. Unless I sew very slowly the upper thread tends to break, or on knits it skips stitches AND breaks. I have rethreaded the machine about 20 times according to the diagram, rewound the bobbin (that came with the machine), adjusted the tension/stitch length, changed the needle, everything that was recommended in the manual, all to no avail. The thread seems to be hanging up down around the bobbin assembly somehow, but I can't figure out why. I have been sewing since I was 10 years old (I'm 62) on various machines, so I don't believe this is user error on my part. It would be a major headache to pack this back up and send it back, and it does a fair job as long as I sew slowly, so I'm going to go ahead and keep it. At this point I only do mending or sew simple garments, so I don't need anything very fancy, but if I decide to do more I will be buying something else. I still love Overstock.com and will continue to order from them, but in all honesty I can't recommend this machine to anyone
The Brother LX2375 sewing machine arrived promptly and packaged securely. One would never know this machine was "refurbished" since it looked and performed like a new machine. I recommend viewing the enclosed DVD which details how to set it up and explains the functions of the various dials and levels. Overall, the machine is built for the beginner sewer and performs this task well.
I bought this for my 10 yr old daughter for Christmas. She had asked for a "sew cool" sewing machine from the toy store. Reviews were horrible, so I decided ...that for just a little more $, I could get a real sewing machine. So glad I made this decision! Neither of us are sewers & this machine is very easy to navigate. It has been a great purchase. I would definitely recommend it.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a machine for my very talented and crafty 11 Grand daughter, nor did I want to buy a disposable one either. So when I saw this I decided to take a chance on a 'refurbished'' one. I've got to say, that I ran wonderfully. I haven't sewn anything for years and look forward to helping her with projects. I only rated this as good because we've only have one sewing lesson. Time will tell. Hopefully we'll have lots of fun projects!
I had been looking for a sewing machine for my daughters Christmas present except if I found a decent priced machine the shipping was out of this world. Thought I would check on overstock and there it was...good name brand, great price and low shipping. Perfect!!
