Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sewing i bought this sewing machine for my 11 year old daughter and the instruction was google is the best sewing machine had 07 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just the job My first new sewing machine for 25 years and it is brilliant. Easy to use, with perfect results. I'm not a first class needle woman and didn't want a machine too complicated, so this fits the bill perfectly. Light to carry and love the colour. Now teaching my Grandaughter how to use it. 15 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to use! Perfect for a beginner! I bought this sewing machine with absolutely no previous experience in sewing and within 1 day I had already created a 12 flagged, double sided bunting. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow so this sewing machine is perfect for beginners! It has a lot of different stitches and the foot peddle isn't too fast. My machine is watermelon colour and I love it, so nice to have something different to white! Would definitely recommend this machine. 06 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Bought this to replace my old singer hand operated machine. I usually find electric machines too fast but this is a nice speed for me. Haven't done much sewing yet but I think it will be useful. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well designed and simple to use! Having run out of patience with my inherited 50+ year old Pfaff machine which needed constant coaxing and only stitched forward and backward, I just bought this. It is fantastic - My son and daughter (aged 12 and 10) are similarly impressed. Even they can understand the instructions to thread it, change settings etc. and can start making simple things like cushion covers on their own. I plan to buy a Janome zip footer when I can work out which one to get - tips welcome please! 26 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant machine I used to have a child's sewing machine many years ago, and this is the first machine I've used since then. I am very, very pleased with it. I consider myself to be a complete beginner when it comes to machine sewing, and this machine has been so easy to set up and use. I also bought some patterns from John Lewis to practice with, one of which was to make a toy puppy. I have now made 9 puppies and taken in several items of clothing (which was my original reason for buying the machine as I've been losing weight and want to take clothes in rather than waste money buying all new). I hope next to make some baby clothes for a friend who is expecting her first child, and then to move on to clothing for myself. I am sure that the machine will handle these tasks well, as it has performed excellently over the two months since I bought it. I would happily recommend this machine to anyone. I'm also really happy that I was able to get it in the beautiful Retro Blue. 21 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value sewing machine This product is an excellent first starter sewing machine. It is easy to thread and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. It is very light to carry and comes with a handy storage cover to keep the dust out. Would recommend this to anyone starting to learn to sew. 19 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Purchased this for my daughter for GCSE Textiles and going on to A levels. Absolutely loves it! Easy to follow instructions and easy to use. Does exactly what she needs it for. She loves the colour (dusky pink) and uses it regularly to make a top or two. 05 May 2015
