Love this machine
February 15, 2014
By quilter
This is a great machine to take to my quilting classes! Loaded with accessories. For the price you can't beat this. It sews great and seems durable. I have owned it for 6months now and am very satisfied. My quilting instructor ask about it at our first class and remarked that she loved my machine.

I like very itmuch for working in quilting for my grandkids. It took my only an hour to learn to use. I just wish I could use more feet. I could not find anywhere about those. The only negative thing is that the fonts are only in one size, very small.
I am also visually impaired and I can thread the whole machine without too much trouble.

Great machine BUT slightly disappointed
December 23, 2013
By Hausch from Northwest Ohio
I've had this about a week but there are two things I'm super disappointed with thus far. The machine functions great, has a bunch of cool features, and came with some awesome tools. HOWEVER the bartack setting doesn't work on thicker fabrics and MOST disappointing is that the font setting for the letters only comes in one small size! YOU CANNOT ENLARGE THE LETTERS!! The picture that was on the outside of the box features big letters sewn onto items. NOT COOL! That was one of the main reason's I ordered this sewing machine. >:(

False Advertising?
December 20, 2013
By MalteseDuck from UT
The machine seems fairly nice and easy to use, so I want to rate it higher because of that, but on the specifications page it says:

Thread Sensor: Upper Thread and Bobbin Sensors
Automatic Thread Cutter: Yes

These were some of the features we were looking for and what narrowed down our search to this machine. It seemed like a lot of nice features for the price, especially the bobbin sensor since we often run out of the lower thread and it causes problems we have to then fix.

Unfortunately, this machine did not have these two features we are looking for. We are kind of upset because we did a lot of research and comparison of the specs of different machines and we didn't end up with what we thought we did.

Please update the specifications tab to correctly represent what this is. If you are fine not having these features then it is a fairly nice machine for the price.
