The concept is great. I have purchased these, used them, thrown them out. Purchase again, used them, thrown them out again.I am sure they work for some. The product is well made.It isn't the product that is the problem, it is the user, me.

This machine is a gem. I purchased it for the Disney designs and I haven't been disappointed. It is a workhorse. I take it to classes and on trips to my daughter's home in New York. I own the Ellisimo and I use this little machine as a supplement to it. I have not been disappointed. It is quiet and efficient.

I love this bobbin winder, it is top notch, I take it with me to retreats and then wind as I need.The only drawback is that it is only compatible with limited machines. I am waiting for a modification or a different model that will wind the pfaff and viking.But I would highly recommend it, if you do not own the above listed machines.

Although I haven't used the product yet because I just received it, I had a few retailers that did not carry it and would not order it for me. I have two machines, I didn't want to purchase another, so this is my "Serger". This company was very prompt in sending out the Side cutter with clear to follow instructions. I am very pleased.

My old machine just did not give me enough stitch options for what I wanted to make. In the end, for the price and options, this machine does a really good job. I LOVE the automatic buttonholes and that there are 4 of them! It has changed my crafting life. I recommend this machine for those who make their own clothes and crafting projects.

I WAS REALLY DISAPPOINTED AT FIRST, BUT I THINK ALOT OF THAT WAS THAT I WAS NOT REALLY KNOWLEDGEFUL ABOUT THE MACHINE. IN OTHER WORDS THE MACHINE WAS SMARTER THAN ME. IF IT WON'T DO WHAT I WANT IT TO DO, ITS BECAUSE I DID SOMETHING WRONG.JUST TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE BOOK AND WATCH THE VIDEO(SEVERAL TIMES IF YOU HAVE TO) THE MORE THAT I TRY DIFFERENT THINGS THE MORE THAT I LOVE IT.

I enjoy this machine a lot. It does a beautiful job of embroidering and it is easy to operate. The needle threader is terrific and is almost 100% successful each time. It is easy to thread and easy to load from the computer or card reader. The only trouble I have had is with the thread breaking. I have not taken the time to find the perfect needle and tension setting for the thread I use.

I love this machine! This machine works great for people of all ages, even eight-year-old girls. It has three speeds at the push of a button. It is easy to thread and select and adjust the stitch width and length. The Brother SE 400 is a combination sewing and embroidery machine. Brother has many free embroidery designs on their website. The manuals are very descriptive and easy to follow. Read the manual online before purchasing the machine, you will pleasantly surprise.

I have had my Janome 1600P DB for 2 years now and use it on a Handi Quilter frame. When it works, it works great! But, when it decides to have troubles, it is really frustrating. I have had problems with the thread breaking and it only seems to like a few types of thread-King Tut, Signature and YLI are the only ones my machine will use. It sews really fast and is easy to oil. For the price, it is a good deal. Just be sure to read your instruction manual and watch how you put in the needles, they can be tricky.

QID books have a pretty standard format for determining sizing and block placement. If you are happy with the approach, this book will not disappoint. The quilt is a fairly easy one to make altho it appears more difficult than it is. Once you have mastered it, it is a great one for gifting as you can change the colors to make it truly a special creation for the one being gifted. again, as with all QID books, dlon't expect a lot of different designs. This is much like a large pattern with options for sizes and designs from one technique.

This is the first quilting book I ever owned. I purchased it to take a beginning quilting class at Quilt in a Day. It is written, as I have learned are all of her books, to help you finish one quilt. Using the technique in the book, in this case the log cabin block, you are provided with a variety of different layouts which enable you to make several unique quilts with the same block. It also provides fabric and cutting info for different size finished quilts. For the most part it is easy to read and follow. Just be sure that you mark the size you are using so you don't miscut or purchase too little fabric.

I got this machine around Feb. 2010, and I really like it. All around good quality, with a needle plate that automatically adusts, a needle threader, lots of fancy stitches, and the accessories (like feet) are fairly inexpensive. I also like the way it starts and stops at the beg. and ends of seams. But my favorite part is the ability to control the speed--I always want to go too fast! I haven't mastered machine quilting yet, but that's probably more my fault than the machine's. One negative is that it's kind of hard to reach the screw for unfastening the foot. Most of the feet are easy to change, but when you need to unscrew the foot (for machine quilting, for example) it's hard to get to.

I received this machine several months ago and all I can say is that I luv, luv, luv the endless capabilities of the sewing components and the enless possibilities of the embroidery component. This machine is PC compatible and there are so many design sites available with free designs and designs for purchase at a reasonable cost. I have found so many designs that I just had to embroider with my Futura that I just have begun a small sewing/embroidery business. That's on top of my regular job! I spend hours unleashing my creative side with this machine. I love the fact that this machine can receive updates through the PC, which keeps my machine current with all the new technology that Singer has to offer. I would have given this machine a 5-star rating for the creative sewer, but with Singer always improving their product line, it won't be long until they issue another PC update on this machine to help expand our creative side even further. Wonderful product!

The open toe is great for a better view of free motion quilting.
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.
