John Lewis JL110 Sewing Machine
Great machine this is my first sewing machine and totally love it! Great to work with and very easy to get the hang of.
The instructions are very understandable especially for beginners like myself
Have already finished my first protect and in the middle of my second best Christmas gift to myself!
Highly recommend to anyone thinking of buying this machine the colours are great too!

What a joy!
To find that the reviews on this sewing machine all told the truth! Over the years, I am ancient, I have owned several electric sewing machines and gave up on all of them. They were either, too fierce, too complicated or too heavy. After reading the reviews I decided to, once again, take the plunge. I am so glad that I did. I have used the machine once and cannot wait to do so again. To anyone reading this note and wondering what to do - go for it. You, like me, will not be disappointed.

I've always found sewing machines a little intimidating and have always struggled with the foot pedal speeds but brought this one based on the reviews and I am very glad I did!
This machine is so easy to use and the instructions are simple to follow. Adjusting stitch type, length and tension couldn't be easier. The foot pedal is easy to control and not oversensitive, you can use a light touch for a slower pace. I've only had it a few days but have become very confident already, I completed my first project in two days after purchase.
Plus the colour matches my dining room where I'll be doing all my sewing.

I love it!
I recently purchased this in dusky pink. I love the fact that it's not white!!
Have already used it quite a bit. Very easy to work. Runs lovely and smoothly and not too noisy (which is always a bonus when the other half is trying to watch TV in the next room!)
Would certainly recommend!

Lovely machine to start sewing on.
A great starter machine, now I wish it had more settings but overall it is very good for the price.

I was looking to replace a 40 year old Brother Sewing Machine that is beyond repair. I use my machine for routine sewing, making curtains and cushions, making and adjusting clothes etc but rarely use any fancy stitches, so needed a robust but basic model that was lightweight yet easy to use. This is exactly what I needed and is good price too. The stitching is perfect, it is very easy to use and the instructions are clear. The machine is also very light to lift to and from the table, so I'll be able to use it far more often than I did my old very heavy machine. There is a built-in light, a good selection of stitch choices, and handy reel holders that can be pushed down when not in use to save them being accidentally snapped off! Very pleased with this purchase.

I got this machine today after carefully inspecting it in store, I was on the look out for quality, and this is definitely quality!
The components are all metal- which is just what I wanted, in my old machine (brother)- the bobbin casing was plastic and rattled, and eventually broke free, I do not think this will happen in my new, very sturdy machine!
Threading and set up is very easy, there are numbers to guide you, and the instruction manual included is also very useful with clear instructions and illustrations.
My mum is also about to order this machine after trying it tonight, she hasn't used one since she was at school and was confidently sewing straight away! It runs very smoothly, and I tested some of the stitch options my old machine could not cope with and they went without a hitch.
Included also is a zipper foot, overcast foot, button hole foot, so you will be ready to go with whatever project from the outset.
If like me you are looking for a top quality machine on a budget then please choose this one, I am in love already and cannot wait to start making! If you go in store compare the machine with the top branded ones- you'll be surprised that this machine is built just as well and better in some cases, so why pay more when you can have the same quality for half the price? It makes sense, go buy it, because I'm absolutely smitten and I'm sure you will be too
I hope my review has been helpful, and I wish you all happy sewing!
(I am a student and I sew as a hobby, so I'm sure this will suit the needs of beginners and intermediates- I plan on making clothes with mine)

Brought this sewing machine for my daughter's 9th birthday. It was her 1st sewing machine and she absolutely loves it. It is perfect for her and she has picked it up really well. She can change the bobbin and cotton on her own. Very good machine.
