I got my machine for Christmas. I sewed with it for maybe 10 minutes. The needle went as far left as it could and would not reset. The needle kept hitting the plate.Now I have to wait for a shipping label to send it back. And wait for another machine. I think the next machine will be a Brother and it will come for a dealer.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

I really put this machine to the test!! I was in the middle of making five quilts (including one king size!) and four purses for Christmas when my old Singer's bobbin messed up. I couldn't figure out how to fix it and I didn't have time to take to be repaired. I went to my local Walmart and bought my Sew Mate. It was absolutely a life (and Christmas) saver! I have totally enjoyed experimenting with all the stitches. I am not an extremely experienced seamstress, but with this machine, I do not have to be! I love this machine! Worth every penny!!

My breaking needles 5400

Sorry, my riview is not so good. My son bought me this machine to make some projects but I have so many problems with it that I stop my projects for a while. The last thing is that the machine broke the needles and only function with num 16. I consulted many forums to see what I'm doing wrong but no results with the new machine.

Love the machine and purchased a walking foot for it as well as I'm using it for quilting at the moment. The only thing that some times it is hard to do it thread the bobbin for some reason. Takes a few tries to get it set right but other than that I haven't had any problems. Might play around with the other stitches tonight as I haven't yet.

Pros:
Good Value, Easy To Use
Cons:
Cant Repair A Belt Yourself, The Whole Case Needs To Be Taken Apart.

The very first time I used this machine (sewed for approx. 30 mins) the belt came off and I had to go to a service center to get it repaired so I could finish a project. I had a deadline to meet. had to pay $32 to get the belt put back on.
