PLEASE beware when purchasing sewing equipment online. If I had done a complaint search of the vender I ordered from, I would not have been in the situation I am in. Sooooo sorry.

I ordered a machine, opened the box, noted the damage, and notified the company. No response. I called to check up, thinking that maybe they didn't get my email to customer service. They did, and they said that someone would be contacting me in five days.

I had previously called them to say that my invoice showed that they would be including 100 free needles, and they said that was an error. I said that I only expected them because it was printed on the invoice that they sent me.

They had no intention of doing anything about that. My research shows me that that is a general business practice that they have adopted.

I have ordered thousands of dollars in equipment and notions online and I have NEVER encountered customer service like that.

After all of this, I have searched for this website and the word "complaint" and there were hundreds of cases just like mine.

So sad.

And this website is very well known. That's why I was fooled.

It is a site where they sell "all" kinds of "brands."

So sorry for your trouble, be sure to give them the negative reviews they earned, here, there and everywhere. Of course, insist they make it right.

Ah yes, been there, done that:( Once bought a demo serger from them, when it arrived, looked like it "had been rode hard and put away wet" as we say in horse circles:) I put the poor thing out of its misery:)
