  • Not Heavy Duty

    I wanted a heavy duty machine. This does a pretty good job, but it is definitely not as "heavy duty" as I would like.

  • It arrived with a broken part.

    When the machine came to me the bobbin winder was broken off from the machine so I never got to use the machine. the design on plastic (the blue on the front of the machine) was wrinkled and ready to peel off. I must say the price of the machine was great, and if I could have used the bobbin winder I may have kept the machine. Included was a DVD to learn how to use the machine and lots of interesting additional parts were included. So to be fair, I can't say if the machine worked or not. I had no problems returning the machine, everyone was kind and fair.

  • way better than: Brother LX 3125 Sewing Machine

    I was a little wary about purchasing this machine. There were no reviews on it, but I love Brother sewing machines. I purchased the Brother LX 3125 Sewing Machine (Refurbished) from Overstock about 2 years ago. It's an amazing lil guy but it's loud! NOW THIS MACHINE is QUIET! Smooth! Easy to work with, and a dream! I am going to purchase another one asap! This lil machine single handedly made sewing my first satin ball gown a dream: I was very worried at first that it wasn't do able with a brand new machine that I hadn't ever used before much less been used to. I ended up successfully sewing a zipper my first time out and had no issues. It's a great machine and is very intutitive. This machine also came with a great instruction manual that you can download from the Brother site: Overall I am very happy with this great lil sewing machine. It's small, lightweight and easy to transport with the Omni Trolley. I don't know what I would do without it! Favorite features: - LED light for sewing area - Easy stitch selection - Easy foot changing - User Guide/Manuals (quick reference guide is PERFECT for a first time sewer)

  • Great deal, great machine!

    I am not a seamstress, but I would like to learn. I have crafty friends, and they've let me try their machines. I decided it's time to get my own, but didn't want to spend a lot or get a ton of "bells and whistles" I won't know how to use. This one was on sale (for $XX!! no tax no shipping) and I thought "can't go wrong with that!" It works as advertised...very simple set up, didn't even have to refer to the DVD, thanks to the prior practice on my friend's machine. Took it out of the box, threaded it up, wound a bobbin first try, and hemmed a couple things. I *would* say "worked seamlessly" but that's just bad form ;) I highly recommend this machine for beginning or intermediate sew-ers...does all I need and then some, it's light, easy to use, and came with extra bobbins, presser feet, needles....everything one needs to get started!

  • Easy and Intuitive!!

    I have never sewn before and within 24 hrs of unpacking the machine I have fixed the hem on two different shirts, slimmed the sides of a sweater, narrowed the armholes of a wrap dress and slimmed the sides, and I have hemmed my first pair of pants! This machine has already paid for itself considering the cost of such alterations !! The instructional DVD is extremely helpful with staring you off, while the simplicity of the machine itself makes the sewing seem like common sense. Truly worth trying! Highly recommended.
