Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinabee Buy it you won't regret it
For years I had been struggling with a second hand machine, the bobbin and tension were a nightmare. I went along to the Cribbs Causeway branch intending to just buy a cheap, basic model. After a chat with one of the assistants who was informative but not pushy, I decided on this machine. A little more than I was going to spend but boy I am glad I bought it. It is such an easy machine to use and because of this it has rekindled my love of sewing. I think it is a great machine for both beginners and intermediate sewers. The only thing I wish it had is a blanket stitch but this really is a minor thing. So I say buy it, you won't regret it.

Very pleased with this sewing machine. I was replacing a machine which was years old and the difference is amazing.
I wasn't sure which one to buy but took the advice of the sales assistant who was very helpful and advised me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AAJB Great sewing machine for beginners.
After some initial research and visiting John Lewis in Cambridge, my wife decided to buy this sewing machine. Very easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow.This is my wife's first sewing machine and she thinks it is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KKSS1 Best model in this price range
You can do a lot with this machine - I can't imagine that beginners or even intermediate sewers would need anything more than this model offers. It comes with a range of accessories, but you can also buy a variety of other accessories online if you need them. It's also quiet - I often use it in the same room as my husband whilst he watches the football.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SilverMac Good all rounder
I'm really enjoying using this machine. It has a variety of stitches, easily set by the twist of the knobs, which cover most jobs.
I particularly chose this model as it had a needle threader; well worth having. A good all round machine.
My only Con is that being left-handed I find the presser foot leaver awkward to find. I will have to learn to be right-handed on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJj50 Great Sewing Machine for a 'rusty' beginner
I am very much a beginner having not done any sewing since being at School about 30 years ago. This is a fantastic machine as it is easy to use and straight forward to understand. I watched a YouTube video as to how to thread a bobbin and threading the needle as I found it easy than reading the instructions - I was able to sew straight away. Absolutely delighted and would strongly recommend this machine. I really like the fact it has a needle threader and you can easily access the bobbin and see it clearly. One very happy beginner.
