    I have just started sewing with this machine. While it isn't as heavy as my old Pfaff, it has just the features I need. I am looking forward to trying it with denim and heavier fabrics. Finally, I can make button holes!

    Very nice machine . . .

    Posted by R. Lee on 14th Nov 2018

    Used it straight out of the box. Runs very smooth. Instructions are easy to follow. Only tested on light jobs (Mending jeans, hemming pants etc . . . ). Time will tell how well it holds up under use. So far, so good . . .

    Good, user friendly sewing machine

    Posted by Joyce M. Schehl on 2nd Nov 2018

    All in all I am happy with this machine. I wanted a good machine and did not want or need 300 different stitches. I think the machine is user friendly; the manual is easy to follow for set-up which I was dreading and turned out to be easy. I sewed on denim with no issues, . Of all the choices I looked at and considered, I think I made a good decision buying this. The stitches are consistent and strong.
