Hard to find information on how to use

Not really happy with this product. I am having the same pedal problem that I have read about on other sites. Very slow to change, in my case won't go fast at all then speeds up slowly. Can't figure out how to get the stitch that I want in the way I want it. I miss my Singer :( If only machines were made in the good Old U.S.A.

almost perfect

I like sewing with this machine. It came with a lot of helpful feet. Just enough features to do a little extra embellishing. Nice stitches. I have sewn heavy weight denim to light cotton and it can absolutely do the job! I really bought this machine for reliability. The cons of this machine are that sometimes you can press on the pedal and it will not start sewing right away. The button hole foot gives me fits sometimes also as it will make one button hole correctly and then the next one is short and I need to rip it out. The other con is the price of accessories. If this was another machine I could get additional feet for half of the price. I would like a free motion foot and a walking foot but the cost would have gone over the price of the next model up and I have had the machine about 2 years now and really just getting to use it more.

Great Machine

I have had this machine for 2 years and I simply love it. I needed a dependable machine with great features and this one performs great. It was easy for me to start learning to sew on this, and now that I have been sewing for over 2 years, I'm so glad I invested in this one from the beginning. I took a couple of intro to sewing classes after my "2 free training classes with purchase" were up and every time I was so pleased to have such a nice machine to work on. My mom has been sewing for over 30 years and she always says how much she loves using my machine!

Great but not outstanding.

I have had this machine for about 3 years I think. It's in the shop right now (buttonholer won't buttonhole). The one major issue I've had with this machine (and I really do regret buying it because of this) is the lack of control with backstitching and the speed in general. I got a serious reminder of this when I pulled my old Singer (back up machine) out the other day and started using it again. OMG. If you want to go fast you simply press the pedal. On the 183, it's a total crapshoot. You don't get ANY control whatsoever. The machine decides when to accelerate no matter what you do with the pedal. On the backstitching, yes, there is a "stop" button, but it doesn't backstitch.....and there is a "locking stitch" button, but it doesn't backstitch either. So, you're left to your own devices.....the good old reverse button. Too bad the button isn't reliable and again no control. You never know exactly when it will start to backstitch OR when it will stop.Other than that, it's been a dream! LOL I really would love to get a different machine but it's all about the $$$$. Maybe one day I can do a trade in at my local sewing machine shop. Oh well.....

Mrs. Banks

I've had the Emerald 183 for 2 years now and I truly do enjoy this sewing machine. It has enough embellishing capability to be more than a basic machine but not so much I need a college degree to learn how to use it. The buttonholes this machine can do are great for someone like me who makes all their own clothes. I think anyone would love this sewing machine for it's easy learning curve and in case it's an issue for some this machine is very quiet.


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.
