Confirmed purchaser Female, plenty of mending!

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Quite forgiving to a new user.

Has good safety ideas - your forehead is safe when you lean up close to peer at what you are working on,

Recommended by Repair Technician - a very good sign.
Bad points:
No list of extras available, i.e. roll hem foot. I would probably have bought one or two extras.
Retailer had no knowledge of the machine - didn't even know how to thread it!! I would have liked a proper demo,, especially as my sight isn't as good as it was once.

steve , Nottm i am honest

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
every thing seems easy to use once you finally get it sorted. The product is good for the beginner to sewing but is also useful for the competent user too.
Bad points:
the manual is awful, i dont know who writes these things but they are about as clear as mud sometimes. Takes for example the "Automatic" threader, can i work it, No and the manual is of no use at all.
