Perfect for a Beginner

Super easy to set-up and use! I read through the instructions included and then used YouTube to practice and start my first project. It took maybe two hours from the opening of the box to the end of my first project. I am super happy with this machine so far!
Amazing little trooper!

I was gifted this machine when my singer heavy duty was broken by a room mate. For what was to be a temporary replacement till I could afford the high end heavy duty machine I wanted I couldn't be more impressed by this little machine. It is light weight and compact making it easy to travel with for crafting get togethers. Yet it still has chucked along impressively through all the hard work I've put it through. From making thickly layered plushies to quilting projects, add in the occasional clothing repair, this machine has gone through it all and is still my sweet little champion. So if you are looking for a very good beginner machine, or if your a seasoned professional who needs a little helper you can't go wrong with this one. I'm not planning on replacing mine any time soon.
