I bought this machine about 6 months ago and have used just about every day since then. I was a total novice at using sewing, especially at using a 'fancy' machine. I had been borrowing my mom's 40+ year old machine and had to call her every time the bobbin ran out so that she could walk me through the confusing way to replace it. I bought this machine, barely browsed through the manual and figured it out in a snap. The bobbin is ridiculously easy to replace and change, the stitches are easy to switch back and forth, the presser feet are even super easy! I was nervous at first to do this, so I stayed on the same few basic stitches for the first month or so, just because I thought it would be such a hassle to change the foot, but I finally tried it, and it was so easy a monkey could have done it. No, seriously, I think my 3 year old could have done it. I highly recommend this machine, it's easy and quick and I haven't experienced any problems in the last 6 months (although, with my luck, now that I've written this review, the thing will probably blow up in my face or something!) and I use this machine A LOT. If Brother is reading this, a nice feature to add would be some sort of notification that your bobbin is out of thread. It drives me CRAZY when I'm sewing and then 1/3 of the way through I notice that none of my stitches were done because I had run out of bobbin thread. www.ArtsyFartsyBaby.Etsy.com
