The pros

  • You get value for your money. The money that you spend on this durable machine does not live up to the benefits that you get from it.
  • You’re in full control as you are able to adjust the length and width of the stitches.
  • Its metallic feature makes it durable and able to handle tough projects. Whether you are sewing bags, denim or comforters, this machine is able to tackle your most demanding projects in the most effective way. You may even sew through multiple layers of ‘tough’ fabric.
  • The built in thread cutter and needle cutter saves you a lot of time and effort while sewing.
  • The foot pressure adjustment enables you to apply different levels of pressure depending on the toughness of the fabric that you are working on.
  • The free arm simplifies your work when Hemming a pair of pants or sewing small parts.
  • You are able to see the bobbin as it runs through the top, drop-in bobbin and see-through plate, as well as have it beautifully wound by the automatic bobbin winding feature.

And the cons

  • It has a limited number of needles. The best needles to use are the Janome and Organ needles.
  • It does not have a needle down position. This must be done by hand.
  • The machine is not fully metallic. The front half as well as the sides are made of plastic.
  • The hard case is not attached to the machine and acts as a flap over the top with a hole which leads to the handle.
  • The storage compartment is not latched onto the machine. Thus, you need to ensure that you apply some pressure on the lid of the compartment as you sew as the vibration of the sewing machine while it is in use causes a lot of noise.
