I've had one for a couple of months, although I haven't written a review yet. I only recently got back into sewing after a very long hiatus and had previously only sewn on very basic mechanical machines. With that perspective in mind I am very happy with the 2.0. The IDT makes sewing a dream.

I've had no problems with thin slinky knits or with thick multiple layers of cotton and zips, although I did have to adjust my tension for that. I find that the straight stitch with the IDT engaged on thin knits gives you a bit of stretch, certainly enough for verticle seams. I've also topstitched around neck binding with no popped stitches but to clarify the neckhole is big enough to fit over my head without stretching it. I'm happy enough with the lettering. Although I have a serger I needed to use the Pfaff's overlock stitch and was pleased with the results.

Overall I am very happy with this machine and anticipate many happy years together.
