Has anyone ever gotten a sewing machine from HSN?
Thinking of getting the new Juki there with flexpay

I have watched the videos on the new Juki HZL-K85, and I am very impressed with what you get out of this machine for the price. There are no reviews here, and the HSN reviews are sparse. Just wondering if anyone else has ever gotten a machine from them with the flex pay option, and if so, how did it go?

I bought my Singer serger ( 14sh764), and my Singer 4in1 Futura Quartet( which because of family circumstances I've been unable to do more than stitch samples and 1 test embroidery- I love my serger and think I'll feel the same about the Quartet. I think I bought the serger on Flexpay; definitely did the Futura...very happy with the Flexpay option, and with HSN in general.

Oh, thanks for responding. I took the plunge, and now I feel better after hearing from you. Maybe I'll get to be the first to review the HZL-K85!

I've purchased 2 machines from HSN. One I had to return and I chose to get a replacement. Either way, it was easy with no hassle. Good luck with your new machine.

I've ordered a few from HSN too. A return shipping label is included on your invoice when the machine comes so returns are super easy. You pay the return ship fee but it's not that much considering the weight of the machine. I think it was something like $8.95 but don't quote me. That amount is just deducted from your refund. Now, if something would be wrong with machine you ordered call customer service to let them know. They are very friendly and helpful and you will not be charged the return shipping fee. Your refund would be the full amount.

Go to a sewing dealer in your area because if anything go wrong they will repair the machine a.s.a.p. or give you a new one. Plus lessons are usually free on how to operate your machine. I hope this was helpful.

Anything I have purchased from HSN was an easy purchase, and in all the stuff I have bought over the years only a couple needed returning - one pair of shoes and one ring were the wrong size. No hassle returns. Never bought a machine there, but the returns are easy. With a Singer machine I think you can take it or send it to a near Singer authorized center if you should need that. With a Janome, you would have to see what they do for a needed reapir, I have no idea but they have a long warranty. In my case, I did buy a refurb Janome online and it needed a tweak of the buttonholer which my local sewing tech did without hassle for about 20 dollars and it has been fine - no worries. I didn't want to bother with shipping or worry about warranty for that price.

ENJOY your new machine and let us know how it turns out! :)

I should add that when I DID take a machine to my dealer which I had purchased from them, and I thought it needed a minor tweak, they not only charged for looking at it, but said there was nothing wrong - seems they CAN and DO charge to check machines out quite a lot at dealers, and then even if its a warranty repair you pay the checking-it-out fee.

Of course there was something wrong, and so I had to do it myself - the bobbin tension needed loosening, which you must do with a very light touch. And after that the machine was fine.

Not all dealers do this.

If you could possibly swing a higher monthly payment, the F400 would be a much better value. It looks very much like the F600 that so many here (including me) rave about. It has a scissors button which the K85 lacks among many other upgrades. It already has many positive reviews on HSN.

You could also get the F600 online of course. Most of us bought ours this way. I used Ken's and had a very good experience but there are other good sellers too. Sometimes it's worth taking out a new credit card to spread out the payments so your monthly payment would be about what you're paying for the K85, it would just go on longer. But then you'd have an awesome machine that's all yours at the end! (And, I think it improves your credit rating to fully pay down a credit card...just don't be tempted to use it for anything else!)
