Great, Steady Performer
January 29, 2014
By Jessie from New York, NY
I've had my machine for two years now and am very happy with the value and performance. The large sewing bed is great for quilting. It's occasionally given me a bit of trouble from the bobbin case but a quick cleaning has always resolved it. Using the computer interface is quick and intuitive. It's probably one of the best sewing purchases I've ever made.

This one is set up for actual quilting with a free motion foot right now and I purchased a basic Brother machine for piecing. A great combo!
