LX3817 Sewing Machine
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great machine As I prefer singers over anything else this is one of the best sewing machine I have in my house. The only down side I have encountered was the bobbin thread would tangle

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First sewing machine. Awesome! This is my first sewing machine. Set up time out of the box was less than 30 minutes. Easy operation. Certainly not a full feature machine but for the price, and what I need it to do it is a fantastic value. I bought it to learn how to make hankies and by the end of the first week, I sold enough hankies to pay for the machine. Highly recommend as a first machine.
