What costumecherie does not like about this machine
I bought this machine from allbrands.com and it was broken right out of the box. I am a professional tailor/costume maker and have worked with many of these machines before. Once I set it up, it made grinding noises and burning smells. I had to call allbrands.com several times over the next two weeks before they would accept a return, they claimed on the phone that they had no return policy because no one has ever returned anything ever - ridiculous!!
I had them send me another machine that worked fine for the first few months - I hemmed several pairs of pants on it a day. After that particular job I carefully put it back in it's original styrofoam packaging and stored it in my house for 6 months. the next time I set it up the pedal wasn't working quite right - sometimes it would run - but sometimes pressing the pedal had no result - this became more and more frequent until the pedal didn't work at all. So for $300 bucks I got a huge hassle and a blind hemmer that was only good for a couple of months. Also I would never buy from Allbrands again. it took them forever to arrange a return agreement. I had to call day after day to get a result.
