Quite new to sewing
Very nice product, simple and easy set up and the stitches are lovely and the machine feels so solid and smooth. Can’t wait for the next time I need to use it.
As a beginner It is a very forgiving machine.
For an elderly beginner a very good machine to understand and use. Only problem is need very good eyesight for threading with invisible thread. As I have found. So beware of the thread that is invisible. Best use matching colour thread. Recommend 100%.
My new sewing machine
I love that it came with an instruction book about the stitches and what foot to use for each stitch. Also when you select a stitch it conveniently tells you which foot to use and all the feet are clearly labelled which is great for me. Machine works great and being able to change stitch length and width is excellent. Winding the bobbin is different to what I’m used to but instruction were clear. Machine works great, only tried the regular and overlooking foot so far but am pretty impressed.
I would advise that this Brother FS40 Computerised Sewing Machine with Extension does indeed include a foot controller.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

After speaking with our supplier, they have advised: 'Use a Leather Needle in the sewing machine. Start with size 12 or 14 for light to medium weight fabric.'
Hope this helps.
Thank you for using Argos Q and A.

So far I've used 100% cotton, cotton poplin and a cotton/linen blend. Machine has been great going through multiple layers too.
