Nice little machinePosted .
I got this machine for Christmas 2010. This machine is extremely light weight, easily lifted with one hand. Pros: Very generous included items including a walking foot for quilters, a hard cover (not case) and an extension table. Easy operation and self threading. Very cool decorative stitches. Runs very smoothly with no bounce or vibration. The button hole function is really nice, just attach the foot, measure the button, select the style and go! Perfect every time! The manuals come in both Spanish and English and they are available online for those who would like to look it up. Cons: Some parts seem flimsy including the spool holder, the pressure foot lever and the button hole actuator. Time will tell if this is a problem. The harp of the machine is rather small. The diameter of the harp is smaller than a standard CD. This could be an issue for those who quilt or sew larger projects. The LED light is barely adequate for most seamstresses so you'll need additional task lighting or a well lit room. Overall Impression: I am well pleased with my machine thus far. I have sewn some medium weight denim and it handled it quite well even when top stitching 4 layers. (Lengthen the stitches) I managed to get this machine on sale at another store because BB was out of stock at the time of ordering. Clearly this is a middle of the road machine but nice enough for novice or intermediate sewers on a budget. Be sure to read the manual thoroughly before attempting any sewing. Proper set up and threading is necessary to avoid damage to the needles.I would recommend this to a friend
