This is meant more for a child's use, but is good none the less.

This has got to be one of the worst things I have ever bought for the price. I read the reviews and thought they looked pretty good, but boy were they wrong! This was a Christmas gift for my four year old grand daughter that went BAD! She was so excited on Christmas when she got her machine and then....It would not work! What a disappointment.

This is a great simple sewing machine. It has the basic stitches necessary to get the job done, nothing fancy though. I bought it as a gift for my grandma who only uses it for hemming pants and sewing lighter materials. I was pretty surprised though when she let me borrow it and I used it to sew a heavier fabric and it worked great! It handled it much better than I thought. It's not too light though and I know that it is advertised as "lightweight". It has more mechanical parts seeing that it's not electronic or computerized so I guess it's lightweight compared to other mechanically based sewing machines. It's top speed is also much faster than I thought. I have a Brother SQ-9000 and this machine has a faster top speed than my SQ-9000. This machine also has a nice compartment that opens up which makes it easy to clean out the dust and fuzz that gets caught underneath due to normal sewing. Great machine for the price and Brother makes great machines so you know you're always getting a deal. The only reason I knocked it down a star is because the title is misleading. It says 35 stitch function but the machine only does 14 stitches. Not sure what they mean by "stitch functions"

Just the right size for an 8 year old child. It is also quite sturdy for the price and a good value for the price. Great machine to introduce children to sewing.

This little sewing machine excited my little granddaughter and she hope to learn to sew.

A good little machine for a child wanting to learn to sew.

I like the sewing machine the only problem is that I cannot find the time to really sit ans enjoy it. But I will be able to do so when I am on vacation

This sewing machine may be a toy, but it is a sweet toy. It actually sews very nicely and is simple to use. My 7 year granddaughter wanted a sewing machine for a Christmas gift, so I purchased it for her. I showed her how to use it and she does very well with it. She really enjoys making simple things right now. I told her she needs to sew under the supervision of myself, or of her parents until she gets to be a little older. The instructions are very simple and I like the fact that the manual states that you can buy replacement sewing machine needles at any craft store. I did some searching on toy sewing machines, and this one is the most well made machine--it is nice and solid. The foot pedal works well also; you can also plug into an outlet if you do not have batteries. My granddaughter and I are very pleased and would recommend this sweet sewing machine to anyone who is looking for a toy sewing machine, or as a simple "starter" sewing machine to learn how to sew.

I was looking for a machine with which I could do costume garment construction and another crafts of that sort. I've since completed 2 costume projects with this machine. To be clear: this is a no-frills machine. With its limited number of stitches and the limited number of "fancy" features, the machine itself performs perfectly. It will sew through multiple, thick layers (I did 8 layers of poplin without trouble) but also handles fine fabrics (like silks) without snags. I'm trying to avoid having a machine with electronics - not only is that one more thing that can break and limit the life of your machine, my sewing needs don't really require it. If you're looking to do fancy quilting, this machine probably isn't what you're going for. But if you're looking to sew garments, costumes or other crafts that require nothing more than some zig-zag and straight pastiches, this is your machine. I have no doubt I'll be able to keep this machine and use it for my lifetime.

Purchased this machine on a recommendation of a friend. After I figured out how to operate it I loved it. Instruction book is a lot to be desired. Translation from (I think chineese) is horrible. Manual needs to be updated. You have to know how to sew in order to figure it out. Not for beginners. Machine works great but had a problem with foot control. After about 20 hrs did not work, apparently a short. Went to local sewing machine company and purchased a new electronic control. Foot control is very cheap. Machine supposedly has 5 year warranty, but no where to call or contact if you have a problem. I have a home business doing window decor. This hemmer saves me lots of time. Would recommend to the experienced sewer.

My daughter was super excited to get a sewing machine for Christmas. She has only used it once but was happy with the turn out.

My daughter likes this sewing machine. It is a little hard for her to use alone but I think in time and practice she will be ok with it

I bought this sewing machine because I wanted to learn how to sew pillows and other things. I like that it is small, has it's own case and very easy to use. I also like that I can show my daughter how to use this because it is so easy to set up and clean up.

This is a great machine for little girls to start sewing with. My 6-year-old niece got the hang of using it in just a couple minutes. It's really a mini sewing machine with more power than I was expecting--not a piece of junk toy. I love that it comes with all the basic necessities too. Great purchase.

I bought this machine for my 8 year old daughter that wanted to learn how to sew. She was very excited when we received the package yesterday. The machine looks sturdy for the price and size and stiches pretty good! She is currently sewing a drawstring bag and its coming out beautiful. I like the fact that it has a high and low stiching speed. the low is perfect for her as a beginner. There are a whole bunch of holes to thread the machine but hey its easy for her to see and learn. I will update the review if need be after a week or so but I think it will not give us any problems. LOVING this little machine!!! Plus there was FREE SHIPPING! Can't get better than that! :-)

I purchased the little machine for my 8-yr-old granddaughter for Christmas and when she opened it, she loved it. First of all, it was a sewing machine and second, it was blue (not pink, she is a bit of a tom-boy). Nevertheless, she sewed on it and LOVED it. She made the purse with the material and notions provided with the case and she was so proud and enthused. Great Choice machine. I would Highly recommed this little machine. We are very pleased. Thank You O. Sincerely, Mawmaw and granddaughter.

I got this for my daughters birthday thinking it would be a good way for her to do some basic sewing / learning. It worked well for about 6 in. worth of sewing. After that the machine started making huge loops on the back side of the stitches. There is no way to adjust anything so I'm glad I bought the platinum protection plan. At this point I really wish I'd just spent a little more & gotten a full sized, real sewing machine.

This little machine works great. My 9 year-old granddaughter wanted to learn how to sew, so I purchased this for her. The threading process is a little complicated, but neither of us know how to sew so I guess that's not unusual for novices. We made a pillow case out of a fuzzy material and had no problem with the needle going through it. I would definitely recommend this.

I have sewn for most of my life. I purchased this for my grand daughter. Threading it was difficult. The thread would not slide through the tension button, no matter how we tried. I should havde spent more $$$ and purchased a sewing machine that was not toy-like. My error.

I was thrilled with this little machine...I purchased this for my granddaughter just turning 10 and hearing her say "Grandma I already made a little bag...it was soooo easy!" made my day. I recommend this for any little one that is starting out sewing. Easy instructions, light weight for lifting and ease of use.
