First off, the description is misleading. I think they copied/pasted it from a different model, but this one is very basic.
The machine does NOT have
- 8 built in stitches
- forward/reverse stitching
- have a built in sewing light
It DOES have
- two speeds, high and low
- foot pedal
- power adapter
- sample sewing piece
I'm an absolute novice when it comes to sewing, but as far as I can tell, this machine is great quality. I've had it for about a week.
I love that it comes pre-threaded with a sample sewing piece. It was nice to see how it's threaded should I need to change the thread myself.
I was able to sew through four layers of flannel/fleece (three layers flannel, one layer fleece). I was making nursing pads. The stitches held up fairly well.
Though probably not recommended, I was also able to sew through elastic. It was a little tricky, but it did it. Not sure how well the stitches will hold over time though.
Great for beginners learning how to sew. Because it only comes with a basic stitch, it's a great way to get familiar with all the sewing machine parts without being overwhelmed with a hundred things going on.
I learned quite a bit from this simple sewing machine. For $22 it's an amazing bargain. Great for simple sewing projects.
