First of all, I am not claiming that I know how to sew or have used many machines to compare this to. With that being said, I have found this machine really easy to use. Setup was easy thanks to the instructions and included instructional DVD. The fast bobbin winder is a breeze to use, as is threading the machine in general. My only complaint about threading is that the built in needle threader does not always get the needle threaded, so far there has been about a 95% success rate with using it. I love all of the built in stitches that this machine has. Selecting the stitch pattern is also simple, the machine has the stitch pattern guide right on the machine, the LCD screen also reminds you of which presser foot to use. Monogramming is easy, but don't let that be the selling feature for you. There is only one font and only one size to monogram with, basic block lettering a little over 1/4" tall. Monogramming is fairly easy and is great for adding a name to the breast pocket of a shirt. Changing needles, presser feet, thread, and bobbins is simple to do thanks to the included tools and instructions ( threading and bobbin instructions are printed on the maching itself). I have not used all features of the machine, nor have I sewn many materials on it, but what I have used came out great. The machine seems to have sufficient power and speed to get tough jobs done quickly. All-in-all, I would recommend this machine to anyone (especially for a novice like me) who needs a simple and reliable machine to sew or quilt.
