Cons:
Minimal Information About Stitches

This was my first machine. I had no clue how to even work a sewing machine when I bought it. It's a sturdy little machine, works great and for the most part, it's easy to use. Some notes from trial and error: the bird-nesting in the bobbin is due to uneven pressure on the foot pedal causing he bobbin thread to "skip". The easiest thing to do in this instance is just to wind another bobbin and use the first bobbin as your top thread. Don't fight it, believe me you'll waste too much thread otherwise. Have your machine serviced regularly, bare minimum clean out the bobbin casing and under the throat plate after every few projects. The dust from the fabric gets caught up in there and causes the needle to start skipping. That being said, this machine is a workhorse. It works great, looks professional and the projects always turn out professional looking. For a novice sewer, this is a great machine to start out with. I have and will continue to recommend it to other people.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons:
Add A Concannot Stress Enough: Before You Press The Pedal, Make Sure The Presser Foot Is Down, Hold The Bobbin And Top Threads While Youre Leading Fabric Through, And Make Sure The Bobbin Is Going Counterclockwise. I Didnt Know This And I Thought My Machi

Once I got it figured out, it was great. I never used a sewing machine so there was things I didnt know. Like keep the presser foot down, hold/pull two threads while your leading fabric through, and put the bobbin in counter clockwise. This machine was easy enough i made clothes right away!
