I decided to purchase this model because the overall reviews were really positive, more so than other similarly priced models. Because it's my first time owning a sewing machine I felt I needed something that would provide enough variety in stitches without over complicating the simple things I wanted to make.
I received the machine yesterday, and after my children had gone to bed I set to work, in the space of 5 hrs I'd read the really easy to follow instructions, set-up the machine, made a template, pinned the material together stitched it and stuffed it.
The machine is pretty quiet. When thread from my material got stuck I just undid the door to the front loading bobbin and undid some part behind the bobbin and it all fitted back in really easily after I removed the tangled thread. The stitches look great on the material too. Thumbs up for this machine!!
I just received this sewing machine tote and I am extremely satisfied with it. I was nervous because of the bad reviews about the dimensions but I found it almost exactly as stated. The only difference I found was the interior height is 14 inches and NOT 15 inches. But other than that it fit my larger than normal quilting sewing machine with no problem.
The shipping was super fast. I ordered it on Monday, a holiday and received it today, Wednesday. I am on the same coast so that may have helped.
It is soft sided, lots of pockets, two back wheels, two rubber grip handles on either end and two nylon handles on the front and back that can be velcroed together at the top for ease of carrying it.
You can't beat this for the price. I have searched extensively on the internet and nothing came close for the price and size. I highly recommend this.
I bought this tote for something other than a sewing machine, so I can't really review how it works with a machine in it. However, I can say it is very well-made and I am very pleased with the quality and construction.
This sewing machine case was an excellent find. It is sturdy and padded on all sides. I have one of the larger sewing machines(Janome/New Home 6600)and it fit perfectly in this bag with room to spare. Pockets for storage are conveniently placed. The handle and roller system make the whole package easily transportable.
I love sewing and sew alot, modifying and making clothes all the time. I've gone six months without a good machine and I've bought and returned four in that time. I've tested out every aspect of this machine over the last week and can say it is very worth the money. Janome is a highly recommended name on most sewing sites, but this is my first Janome. I love it and won't trade out for anything. The bonus to a vertical bobbin is it's capable of being adjusted while horizontal or drop in bobbins cannot be tension controled. This is a sturdy machine with a confident stitch even on stretchy fabrics. I highly recommend it.
It's so cute! It just arrived this week, so I have not used it yet. I spot checked it for any problems/damages, and it's in perfect condition. I think I'm going to love sewing now! It looks easy to use.
I hope I see HK cookware and and kitchen utensils too.
