Most Bang for your Buck
 from Memphis, TN,  Nov 6, 2008

After careful and thorough research over a period of some months, I selected this model from Overstock to be my first sewing machine. I was a tad leary of it being refurbished, but let me assure you that is looks and sews like it is brand-new. I would have never known the difference. Super fast shipping- Thanks Overstock! I ordered it on a Saturday afternoon and received it that Tuesday morning. After oohing and aweing over every piece I pulled out the box, I set it up and figured out how to thread it within 10 minutes. There is a quick start guide included detailing how to wind the bobbin and thread the machine. The user's guide is also valuable, as I said "what the heck does THIS do?" to a few of the included accessories. Speaking of accessories, all the described accessories were included. Even all the feet. I counted them. I believe there are 11 in all. 3 or 4 bobbins and 3 additional needles as well as a twin needle are included. As mentioned in previous reviews, the start/stop button is awesome! I haven't even taken the pedal out of the packaging-I have no need for it! The button is so convenient, it regulates the speed, and best of all when you press "stop", the needle automatically stays in the fabric, allowing for quick pivoting! As far as sewing through thick fabrics, I have had no problem so far. I even made a double thick fleece coat and hat for my little girl complete with buttonholes without incident. I have sewn through fleece, tweed, taffeta, tulle, corduroy, and of course cotton. This machine handles 'em all! If you are like me and debating on which sewing machine to buy form Overstock, I highly reccomend that you purchase this one. You will not be disapppointed. I still smile everytime I look at mine. :)
