Bought this for the sole purpose of heming my slacks! But it did not sew right. It kept skipping stitches. It is light and does not take up much space, too bad it didn't work. Hope ... (see full review)fully mine was an isolated case!

(see full review)sh I had read the forums before purchasing the machine. I would not recommend this product. I am an experienced seamstress and have never had this type of issues with a machine.
I like this machine and would love it more if it were not so temperamental. You have to always thread it perfectly or it will beep. You have to backward stitch perfectly or an erro ... (see full review)r message will pop up. Thread slips if you don't leave a lot of thread hanging out which can also cause it to beep It is too sensitive to be so expensive. What I do like about it is that the machine is sturdy and the stitches are pretty good. This is the second one I bought. I am hoping some of these issues are just me needing to adjust tension or some other user issues. If I find that this is the case I will post another review at a later date. I have yet to use the embroidery machine. So if the embroidery is free of a bunch of error messages than I will improve my review. I have bought the Singer Legend and have fewer problems with that but it's not as sturdy a machine as the futura. I would recommend that one over the Futura at this time.
I haven't written a review yet because I really wanted to do several projects to see how it held up and dealt with different fabrics etc. Since buying this last summer (2015) I ha ... (see full review)ve thrown everything at this machine and its all been good. I have even made blue jeans from heavy, non-stretch denim and never had any problems or skipped stitches, even when hemming the pants legs over the seams. The powerful DC motor is very quiet. I am a fairly new (male) sewer and when I was first starting out the adjustable speed control slider was quite a help. I had been using a vintage Singer mechanical but this is so much better. I now couldn't live without the needle down/up button and the single push button "tie-off" that negates the need to back-stitch to finish the seam. It just makes a tiny knot to tack the seam. I will say you should plan on making a cover for it, as the case is really meant to protect it while traveling and not protect it from dust/lint. There is a cut away on the top
These are 15J bobbins and perfect for my Singer Plus One Sewing Machine. The needles are all the same, but work on medium fabrics. Super price. The carry case holds the bobbins in ... (see full review) place nicely!

I bought my first machine in Nov.2015. I loved it. So I bought my second one in march 2016. I have daughters and we all sew. That is why I bought the second one. Today is Sept 2 20 ... (see full review)16. Both my machines are not working. They run about 100 or less stitches and then it stops and I get an overload message. The warranty is only 90 days. There is not a repairman near this area to fix it. I live in a big city. So it needs to be shipped to another state. I have to pay shipping both ways. I am not a happy.
Brother 1034D is the serger for anyone who feared using one ... I was afraid but wanted the professional finished look on my projects. I did a lot of research, read other reviews, ... (see full review) watched YouTube videos and decided to take a chance with the 1034D. Boy am I glad I did. It's great, easy to use, easy to thread (love the color coded 'map' to thread by!). Love it, recommend it to anyone who wants to finish their projects with pizzazz!!!

I purchased this for my seven year old granddaughter who I had taught to sew around ages four and five. She was working on an old machine with issues and never lost her patience. T ... (see full review)ime to reward that sewer! It's a great machine! She had it out of the box and sewing on a quilt top and freaking out because it was a Hello Kitty machine. I have owned many Janomes, they have been quality machines. I'm sure this will suit my young sewer until she reaches her tween years. BTW her mother said it was a great machine and sews on it also.
I was initially enamored with this machine because it was easy to use and the instruction manual was understandable and thorough. However, I have had issues. Spandex fabric jammed ... (see full review) under the needle plate and had to be removed with needle-nose pliers. The button hole attachment did not stitch the full circumference on fleece fabric. I had the machine serviced locally to adjust the timing and tension because I didn't want to wait for shipment between Oregon and New Jersey for warranty factory repair. I would recommend the Janome because it performs better than my old machine, but it also cost more than twice as much. Additional research and practice will hopefully improve my sewing experience.
easy to understand & use. Lightweight, perfect stitches. It is my 2nd Janome. First one is a quilting machine. This one is for smaller projects, like making an outfit or mending. I ... (see full review) love it! I say, buy it use it, and you will love it.

(see full review)o longer sew anything. The bobbin will not feed, everytime you get a couple inches into sewing anything it jams up and rips the fabric. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE. Spend the extra money and get something worthwhile. I'm stuck paying the bill on a 200 dollar paper weight. So frustrated...
If you are looking for a heavy duty straight stitch only sewing machine this one is great. Read the instructions on winding the bobbin, threading, and regular oiling and you are ... (see full review)set to sew. I have made aprons, potholders, placemats, a quilt and even repaired my dogs collar with it so far. It goes through many layers with no hesitation. I LOVE this machine I can focus on my project and not have to fiddle with tension issues or skipped stitches. This machine is very heavy so at high speeds or while finishing a quilt it doesn't move around but I would recommend using a sturdy table or desk to put it on. I am very glad that I gave the Singer S16 a try.
The machine was purchased for my daughter and she loves it. It's quiet and smooth. It lives up to the description. No fat quarters were with the shipment though. That's the reason ... (see full review)for the 4 stars.
