HI all,
I just bought this Silvercrest machine from my local Lidl supermarket. It has 33 stitches and cost me 70 UK pounds.

Its for taking to classes. and seems a bargain.

Very cute! I can see why it had to come home with you. Looks like it sew ok. How are you with how it sews?

I will admit it is a bit plasticey and I am not keen on the grey. but it sews nicely. Not too noisy.
The hand wheel is the shiny chrome colour and could be bigger or easier to hold and the foot lever is white plastic. Those are the only two things I don't like about it.

Amazingly it came with a 3 year guarantee.
Its easy to select stitches and the length and width controls are on the top.

I think it is adorable and will be great for portability for classes and sewing groups. I get taken in by the outward appearance of a sewing machine. I really try not to look at machines because they somehow come home with me.
