Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly suitable for my needs. Although small and quite basic, it is exactly suitable for my needs. It is light weight making it easy for me to move it about and easy to set up on the table for use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A very basic machine I purchased this machine as I was taking up quilting as a new hobby. The machine was not up to the job, it struggled to stitch 4 fabrics together and the needle broke, it shook when sewing and the thread kept breaking. After a week I returned the machine and purchased a replacement elsewhere

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generally a good machine for a beginner I have just finished my first project. Machine good for beginner but front-loading bobbin caused several needle jams. Best part of purchase was Hobbycraft free lessons at Falkirk. Amanda is an excellent teacher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from uncomplicated machine Simple and easy to use. Better quality than I was expecting and capable of more than basic sewing. I am delighted with this product, it has enhanced my joy of dressmaking due to the straightforward operation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I set the machine up and followed the instructions. It sewed for about 10 stitches then jammed and I couldn't fix it. I tried to unscrew the plate to try and free it but one the screws wouldn't move. Really disappointed. I have to try and take it back but can't find the receipt
