|What Addierecoy likes about this machine|
The thing I like most about this machine is it truly does everything well. When I purchased the machine I didn't trade anything in, I thought I'd use the DreamWeaver mainly for embroidery, but I find myself pretty much just using it for everything.
I don't baby my machines, they are tools for me. I frequently sew and embroider denim and silks, one right after the other, this machine has never been finicky about it. In the past I had used my Pfaff for heavier things and my Babylock the lighter, just because the machines each were better suited for the work. I love knowing one machine can handle it.
Stitch quality is beautiful and consistent.
I also find myself doing more garment sewing and quilting. Being able to sew with the embroidery arm attached makes it very easy for me to pick up a project and work on it for a few minutes without the hassle of doing more than changing the presser foot, bobbin and thread.
I thought the laser pen might be kind of gimmicky, but I am using it a lot. It's obviously great for embroidery placement, but it really shines (pun intended) for piecing, making corners exact etc.
What Addierecoy does not like about this machine
The machine is very big and very heavy. When I bought the machine it came with a travel bag and trolley. My sewing machine has better luggage than I do, but it's never going to go anywhere, but it's yearly check-up. The Dreamweaver is only portable in the sense that it is easier to move than a refrigerator. I wish I had been offered the extension table that comes with the sewing/quilting model, it would have been a better value.
It's a small thing, but the happy and sad faces that come up on the machine's screen in completed messages, low bobbins warnings, etc. are a bit annoying. This is an advanced machine, capable of doing serious work, the smilies seem a bit cutesy.
