Review:
This is a solid machine! The same as the babylock Diana. At first I was really scared with this machine, but then I took some classes and managed to learn my machine inside and out!

1. Just the cover stitch function makes me love this machine even more. - Triple, wide, narrow, double cover stitches! The key is to have an anchor fabric before and after
2. Automatic Tension but also adjustable
3. Differential feed
4. When I purchased this, it includes a blind hem foot, elastic/taping, gathering, piping/cording, shirring, pearl/sequin foot.
5. No computer parts!

I mainly use this machine as a cover stitch. I have a brother basic serger for other serging needs..

Troubleshooting:
The manual is very technical - not for the faint of heart! Threading is not "Jet Aire" but that's okay once you get used to it. It does not have LED lights. Hard to clean, you need a sewing machine vacuum attachment which I have now :)

If you like the cover stitch it does, the price for that alone is pretty darn decent. Some may buy it just for that to use along their serger, as you do.

I have the same machine and love it. It's sturdy and stitches beautiful! If you or anyone else who owns this machine want clear presser feet, read the first post by me on this thread I love the clear presser feet (especially the coverstitch one) so am always spreading the word about them. Have fun with your machine!
