Great Machine & Great Deal!
 from NC,  Aug 6, 2008

This machine is really nice, I¿m glad I bought it. I can¿t wait to really use it. I have a little trouble using the automatic threader but hopefully I can get used to it. But I love the quick set bobbin! It¿s so nice not to have to bother with bringing up the bobbin thread before sewing. I am really happy about all the stuff that comes with the machine. You really get a bang for your buck with all the accessories included. The extension table, all of the sewing feet, the basic accessories like bobbins, an extra spool pin, cleaning brush, eyelet punch, seam ripper etc. It also comes with a neat little accessory pod that has a built-in (so it won¿t come off) elastic band around it to keep it closed. The accessory pod will hold sewing feet and other accessories and also has special fitted spaces to clip the bobbins in so they don¿t bounce around loosely. It¿s really a nice little bonus. The machine comes with tons of sewing feet to use, almost any one you could want. Here is a list of the feet that it come with: Buttonhole, Overcasting, Monogramming, Zipper, Zig Zag, Blind Stitch, Button fitting, Walking, Quilting, ¼ inch Quilting, and Narrow hemmer foot. It should also come with a plastic soft sewing machine cover. I love the fact that the photo insert swings open to reveal the stitches and number for each stitch, on the backside of the door is a diagram and list of some of the special feet as well. Just one little tip: when you first get the machine, they have a notice pinned underneath the presser foot and needle. I tried pressing the needle up/down button but got an error so it took me a minute to figure out how to get the needle up to get the paper out. I discovered that you have to move the bobbin winder to the left because it¿s set on the right when you get the machine and then it will work. Hopefully that saves someone reading this review the frustration of figuring out what¿s wrong. I have a feeling this machine will be such fun to use. I love the up/down needle position button and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button. I didn¿t think I would like sewing without the presser foot, but I haven¿t plugged in the presser foot yet and am doing just fine with using the start/stop button instead. Like one of the previous reviewers stated, I tried using the screwdriver as well and it is in fact too tall to use on this machine. Why that is, I don¿t have a clue. I was missing a few things from the box, but Overstock was really helpful and they are shipping the stuff as I write this review. Thanks Overstock! What a great deal! I hope this machine lasts a long time!
