|What NuMommy likes about this machine|
This machine sews very quietly and neatly. I like the quality of the machine and enjoy the easy to use screen. I have sewn only one project and tested in on all the fabrics I have sewn in the past and had scraps. It passes wonderfully through: denim, cotton/woven, home decor, 4 layers of fleece with 2 soaker pads (cloth diapers), knit- interlock- unprepared (minmal wave- acceptable for arm holes) and chiffon with paper underneath. That is all I have tested. It sews fast and smooth and changing stitches is easy peasy. I like how even the bobbin winds- that alone is a dream come true.
This is my first taste of embroidery and it has been very limited in scope. No designs yet, only Monogramming. I do enjoy embroidery, but it is difficult to determine/give a good review because I have nothing to compare it to.
EDITED TO ADD:
I like that I can sew without the pedal. This is such a blessing w a)my tall sewing cabinet, and b) small children that like to "help"before I am ready. This really allowed me to get a computerized machine. I had before said, "no no" because I was having to turn the machine off while ironing to keep littles from hitting the gas :). Another thing about this hands free business, is I can add this to my list of recommendations to patients who cannot use their feet adequately. I wanted a vintage machine to take to the nursing home on visits because I thought they would like it, but this machine- they will love- because they can actually use it!! Younger population clients will appreciate a money making opportunity. The newly paralyzed are often at a loss of what can I do, how can I do it. I am really excited to share this with them. I have one in mind in particular who has always loved fashion and expect she will be very excited about this feature.
I like that I can adjust the speed while sewing without the foot pedal as well.
This price was about $100 off of going rate. I am not sure why I got that price. My dealer knew I was looking at a Juki, and Ken's is less than an hour from me. He also knew I had a bad experience with his store while trying to get the last machine I purchased from them serviced and went elsewhere and received good service. I did not tell him until later I was concerned about that business going out of business and b) she sends her machines out for warranty repair, and c) she had lost a friends machine and did not replace it...so that dealer was moved to the probably not list. He also knows I come from a sewing family that spends more money on machines than I do, and I think he just really wanted the trust and the business back. I am not sure, but those may or may not have been factors in my price. It was also a cash price.
What NuMommy does not like about this machine
I do not like that I cannot sew from before the edge or even at the edge, that the stylus does not have a holder, and I do not like the embroidery is not larger than 4x4 :0
When I started before the edge, it was like it would get to the edge and not pull the fabric through resulting in bobbin jam. It could be user error. I should and will start in with dogs covered, reverse, and then sew. I am still quite new at sewing.
