Very Nice Machine!!!
Pros: Powerful enough to sew through several layers of fabric and over seams. Quiet operation! Easy to use right out of the box. Instruction booklet useful and easy to follow. This is a relatively basic machine without all the bells and whistles of the computerized machines. Perfect addition to my collection. Have not used all of the functions this machine offers, but am pleased with the machine overall.
Cons: Not a big fan of the recessed spool pin and bobbin winding mechanism. Needle position is only center and to the left, does not position to right of center, easily remedied by fabric placement.
Other Thoughts: Machine arrived before date. I have 3 other machines, each serves a specific purpose. This was purchased to replace my over 30 year old Singer that had long served my needs and was ready to retire! I am sure I will enjoy many years with this machine, too!!
