I have never sewed before but right out of the box I was able to wind a bobbin, install a bobbin, thread the machine and sew. The on board tutorials are excellent. I also embroidered something right out of the box, again using the tutorials to switch out the bobbin case and install the embroidery arm, modify a design and go! As a newbie, I'm very glad I went a ahead and blew the budget for this machine. Just beware quilters, there is no "cheap" walking foot made for this machine. Only a $400 option. Disappointing after dropping $4k on the machine. However Janome makes one that fits for about $25. You'll need to adjust the stitch width in order not to break your needle. I dont know the model number but your local dealer should be able to help you out. The machine has lots of settings and features which I am still learning after 2 months of ownership. If you are not a newbie like me, you could easily ignore all the on board help. It doesnt leap out at you, I go looking for it. The menus are intuitive and I love the lighting.
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
