Simple design. Good for a beginner

Easy set up and easy to feed bobbin and machine. Error message comes up as a ref which you look up in the manual. The errors I had were of my own doing and easily addressed with the help of the manual. Recommend for a beginner like me :)

Questions & answers

can it sew numbers and letters

3 Answers

This machine does NOT have programmable numbers and letters. Using a walking foot only allows you to stitich in a straight line, that means by stitiching and pivoting you will have block numbers and letters. Purchase a embroidery/darning foot, once you drop your feed dogs, you will be able to stitch forward, backwards, side to side with no restrictions. Also by adjusting your zigzag sititch you will be able to do some great monogramming, this technique is called free motion. With research and practice yo can create all kinds of designs.

There are a wide range of feet available for this machine and from the list you will get one that will allow you to do all sorts of intricate and amazing stitchwork .

Helpful?

no....you could buy the seperate walking foot and try to create your own numbers and letters using that, but the result would be different every time .

This machine DOES NOT have a hard case, just a flimsy plastic pull on one which is useless.

Yes, it's hard lighweight case completely covers the machine, it is loose but still allows easy carrying of the machine, it certainly keeps out any dust etc when not in use.

Is the machine suitable for sewing denim hems?

2 Answers

Yes, and quilting and patchwork

Helpful?

I have used the sewing machine for a few layers of folded over canvas. The canvas is quite thick also, so I would imagine that denim could be sewn with this machine.
