I bought this machine for my daughter-in-law this fall. She wanted to learn how to sew. I selected this model because it could handle thick yardage, a feature I thought would reduce her frustration as a beginner. The machine greatly exceeded my expectations. I have a a very nice (and expensive) machine, but boy was I impressed with this one. In one weekend, we really put it through the paces, sewing up three garments and one toddler quilt. It was that easy to just set up and go. My daughter-in-law quickly mastered the basics and sewed two of those projects herself! I like its light weight, very easy thread and bobbin tracks, transparent pressure foot, and its get-up-and-go, even through thick layers. I had one thread jam but it was my fault. I put the bobin in backwards. Other than that it performed perfectly. I bought this once. I'd like to buy it again for myself! Even if you have a nice machine for home, this is such an easy machine to carry about. Be sure to buy a case with it, as a case is not included. I liked the soft cases better than the hard case.
