Review:
Tell us about your first impression when you used this machine.Oh goodness!

Was the machine manual sufficient?It is ok but very lengthy. I am a hands on learner.

Did you buy any accessories? Do you use them?Yes, I bought the 6D software and the metal hoop (magnetic).

Is this your primary machine?No

Did you take any classes specifically for this machine?Yes. I used the machine to do a couple of projects then went to my dealer for classes so she could answer any of the questions I had.

Was this a gift/pre-owned/garage sale etc?no

How often do you use it?Every day

Would you recommend this machine to others?Yes

Troubleshooting:
Have you had any trouble with this machine? Please elaborate.I have issues with nesting. I found a stray thread that was causing one issue. Make sure when threading the machine that the thread goes exactly where it is supposed to. Know what it should look like. I was guiding my thread too far to the left at the thread positioners which caused a problem.

Do you do regular maintenance on this machine? How?Yes. I make sure it is clean of lint and stray threads.

I am in the process of doing a rather detailed project for my boyfriend (23 hand towels). Ruby stitches right through and does a wonderful job.

I also love sewing on the machine. The auto cut is wonderful.

Well worth the money. :)
