This is not a tough machine-but it's just a little bit better than other brothers models-it will go through two pieces of vinyl and maybe leather but 4-5 layers of a quilt-no-I am ... (see full review)very disappointed. It also has timing problems with just a few uses and begins to skip stitches
I recently bought this Janome machine and couldn't be happier! I was considering buying another machine that had lots of bells and whistles but was 3 times the cost. I opted for t ...

My old sewing machine gave out in the middle of a large project and I needed a new machine in a hurry. I really wanted to upgrade but funds were really low so I went on a search go ... (see full review) find all the features I was looking for and was really downhearted that I would have to settle to an inferior product that I would have to replace in 6 months. A friend asked if I had checked HSN. I was shocked to find that they had the machine I wanted at 1/3rd the price! I love it! Thank you HSN!!!!
I normally find great joy in using all these new machines to complete my sewing and quilting projects. But - I am so sorry to say - I find this one a disappointment. It is my fir ... (see full review)st Janome sewing machine and, possibly, the clacking noises and loud, obnoxious hum when it is in use is normal for this brand. It feels like it is struggling to do even straight stitches. I don't know about this brand. I usually buy Brother, Baby Lock or Singer and the new machines (or at least the ones I have purchased) have all been much quieter. In fact, if one of my other machines sounded like that, I would send it to the shop for repairs. Unfortunately, I am working against deadlines and do not have time to send this machine back. Since it works, I will complete my projects and then give it to my niece. She is a beginner and it, hopefully, will not bother her.
This is a very handy item, i use it to wind all the colors on bobbins that I will need for my project and won't have to stop in the middle of working to wind a bobbin on the sewing ... (see full review) machine. Very handy, time saving device. Would recommend it to anyone.
I have had so much fun with this machine. I have had both Brother and singers since I was 11 y/o (long long ago) and this is the best by far. I love to do home decor from slipcover ...

This machine is JUNK! Singer service is even worse. They do not stand behind this product. I wasted $1000 on this machine. My friend bought one as well and hers is jusnk too. It ha ... (see full review)s been at the service center for 6 weeks and still not repaired. Steer clear of this machine!

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!
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!!!

(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 bought this machine a couple months before Christmas and waited to give it to my wife for Christmas. The first month was fine with minimal use but now 4 months later and I will n ... (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.
Its been a whole year now since I bought this serger. It is great and it still works. The only thing is that when the serger arrived to me I think it was already used. The bags wer ... (see full review)e opened and the little oil bottle was open and leaking. And the serger had been previously opened and oiled, but it worked just fine. It still bothers me to this day that I might have received a used serger when I technically paid for a new one. Nothing is wrong with the serger it works great, no problems no tension issues and no thread breaking. It runs smooth, I used it all the time. This is my first and only serger (until it dies). I absolutely love it, quality stitches, its great. If you cant get it to work its probably user error.. read the manuel and you will be fine.
