I suppose for a contemporary plastic sewing machine this is no better or worse than others on the market but the machine seized up and ruined the feed and timing on my first use. I had to have the machine serviced and was told that it requires special, thin (rather expensive) thread because there isn't enough clearance between the bobbin and the sewing area to accommodate what I believed to be the standard thread of choice (Coats and Clarks). I intend to donate this as I own too much Coats and Clarks thread to begin investing in thinner weight thread and I don't want to deal with a machine that I had such a bad experience with out of the gate. I have since purchased an older, metal sewing machine and find the quality and performance to be superior to these plastic models they are selling these days. The price wasn't all that bad but the quality is lacking and the performance sub-par. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
I purchased these pinking shears, as well as the regular spring action scissors, for my friend with fibromyalgia. She had called me over to cut out a Santa Clause suit she was making, because her hands couldn't handle the strain of cutting the heavy material. When I started cutting the pattern, I realized that even my hands couldn't handle the strain. She had me use some excellent quality, very expensive, but old fashioned (traditional), heavy metal shears that she lovingly kept in it's original box. There was no way to adjust it enough to make it open quick and easy enough to relieve the strain. The next day I ordered her these shears. She reported back to me that, after an initial learning curve where she pinched her hands a few times, she absolutely loves them. She has thanked me many times for gifting her with these wonderful scissors.
Actually I liked the designs, they are really pretty but, I prefer soft rubber which works better with my clay projects. This does not mean that they are not good, they can be perfect with the right materials.
