As a beginner, my mom thought this would be a great starter machine. After it took about an hour to set up, we had it sewing for a while but then it quit. The lower bobbin kept getting stuck and would jam up within three or four stitches. We ended up getting nothing sewed. My mom and grandmother, who have sewed their whole lives, couldn't get it to work. We adjusted the bobbin tension, tried different thread, different fabric, different tensions, different stitches, EVERYTHING. We eventually decided that if it was that hard to use and the machine was that picky about tension and didn't work easily, it was never going to get used. We took it back and bought a Brother someplace else where within an hour of opening the box, had two sets of curtains hemmed. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE UNLESS YOU WANT TO GAMBLE ON WHETHER THE MACHINE WILL WORK OR NOT. Besides, after reading both positive and negative reviews, it seems that EVERYONE has the same issues, it just depends on whether the machine needs to be reset as often as this one would have.
