I brought this lovely little sewing machine as it's much smaller and lighter than the temperamental Singer I've had for the last 30 + years (My Goodness can't believe it's that old)
It comes with good instructions. I find it a lot easier to learning from visual instructions so the tutorials on Youtube were perfect for me.
The weight and size is just what I was hoping for. I think in the US they call this size 3/4 machines. Even the electric foot peddle is smaller.
It's very easy to thread both the top and the bobbin and the automatic needle threader works like a dream.
I like the lever to back stitch too.
It stitches very well, but does not sound as smooth as my old Singer. I would of liked a stitch between the smallest No 1 and No 2. Also the the needle does not center for straight stitch but is on the left of the foot, which I'm not use too, but it isn't a problem.
I'd not used a metal bobbin with a casing since school and found I had to kneel on the floor to get the bobbin in but I'm sure now I know how it works I'll be able to fit it with out looking so closely.
It comes with a dust cover but it is very flimsy. I brought a large canvas carrying bag for it. No one seems to sell a sewing machine bag for a 3/4 machine but they are available from the US.
It's small enough to go on a shelf on my work table so it will be easy to get out for even the smallest of jobs.
So far no negatives and I'm more then happy with it.
