Love this sewing machine. It works great and I love that it is smaller in size, taking up less space than larger machines, but I can sew anything with this one that I could with my older much larger machine. Very pleased with my purchase.
This machine was super easy to set up...I was able to get started sewing in about a half hour and I am truly a numbskull about sewing machines. It also has plenty of functionality. I think I will be able to use it for many years.
This is my first sewing machine. I wanted to be able to sew and embroider, this machine is so easy to use. Threading the machine is very easy and I love love the automatic needle threader. Putting in the bobbin was so easy and filling the bobbin spool was super easy as well. I'm having so much with all the embroidery designs and I love that I can download them from the computer right to the machine. It is a quiet machine and is so much fun. I would recommend this machine for a beginner because that's what I am. Never used a sewing/embroidery machine ever. Thanks Brother
I purchased this sewing machine since it sews and does embroidery. It has a fair price as well. I owned a Futura machine and the laptop used to do embroidery was dropped and the screen damaged. You cannot update the Futura with newer operating systems and Singer offered no fixes. This machine takes a few times to get used too. I did several test embroidery works to get the tension and sewing area correct. The push LED screen is nice as it lets you move the sewing starting point for what you are embroidering. Unfortunately there is only few designs available on the machine. You have to purchase downloads and send them to a laptop or design cards. Both can be expensive and your choices are great with these options if you can afford them. You should have some experience at sewing before using this machine. Once you have used it and tested it, it will work fine. The needle threader works great and makes that step simpler. The only thing it needs is an expanded hoop sewing area. You can purchase a longer hoop but you must move the hoop to continue embroidering as the machine cannot be programmed that you have a longer hoop and more space. The best machine is 5K from Brother. So in general, small embroidering works good and can be done, but larger panels take time as you have to re-hoop the material to the next area, I haven't used the sewing part as I use a Brother machine I'm comfortable with to do general sewing.
