John Lewis JL110 Sewing Machine
Smashing Birthday Gift!
Bought this for our daughter for her Birthday, she has been going to sewing lessons for a few weeks, she loves it and finds it very easy to use, she spends many an evening with the sewing machine on the kitchen table. A very reasonable buy.

A really compact, affordable, easy to use sewing machine. Great hot pink colour! Excellent for occasional use. Click and Collect is perfect. Ordered on Tuesday afternoon, collected on Wednesday afternoon. Thank you John Lewis for an excellent service!

Amazing for the price.
Over the moon with it.
I originally ordered the Coral, but returned it as the colour was extremely pink and not the same shade as I saw online. I swapped for the Spearmint, the exact same colour as online, and am much happier.
Not deducting any stars for a colour swap. Customer service was excellent!
The machine itself is wonderful. So SO easy to use, and a decent weight and size so you don't feel like you're sewing on a toy.
Runs smoothly, has a light, and comes with a little baggy of spare goodies inside.
Threading instructions on machine and in manual are easy to follow.
If you're entry level, picking up sewing after some time, or simply looking for something within budget - go for this!

I bought this item so that I could create light home furnishings for my third year dissertation, and it is a joy! It has everything you need along with a clear instruction book and spare bobbins etc. I bought the coral machine, hoping it would turn out pink as another review said, and it was which may be a downfall to another customer but to me was great - therefore if you choose coral it will come to you as baby pink but for me this is exactly what I wanted! Really pleased with this purchase will hopefully last me a lifetime.

JL110 Sewing Machine - good all rounder.
Just picked up JL110 today. Very easy to use, and very pleased with purchase. It struggles a little with multi layer (but this is reflected in compare noted on line), it is more than suitable for medium use, cushions, soft toy and hobby craft, curtains can be made but thicker stitching would need to be finished by hand. Overall I would recommend this product as a versatile, cost effective machine with simple to use functions. Very neat, compact design with minimal effort needed to get started.

Awesome! But not coral.
So far, this has been a great product. My sewing skills fall in the hemming and darning category but this has been very easy to use and I am keen to actually start sewing some proper projects. The only small downside is that the colour isn't really even close to what is shown on the website. I understand that what is on the screen will differ from what you actually get but sadly my 'coral' sewing machine is actually straight up pink. I'm not fussed enough to actually take it back because you live and learn but it's a bummer and if you have your heart set on a particular colour I would probably scope them out in the store first.
