|What trennag likes about this machine|
Let me start by saying that I LOVE this machine! I learned how to sew when I was in the seventh grade but didn't really stick with it. When I found out I was having a baby I decided I wanted to make him a quilt and started sewing again. I stared with a Walmart brother machine that I loved and it did really well for me. I realized that I had out grown that machine and was wanting more so I started my hunt for the perfect machine. I knew that I wanted/needed a larger throat space and wanted a machine that came with all the quilting accessories. I look at a few other brands but the test drive and dealer are what sold me. After completing 4 quilt tops 2 finished quilts and several other projects I feel like I can give a good review.
Some of my favorite features:
~Auto thread cutter (how did i ever live with out this!)
~The auto pivot foot. Amazing for corners and curves!
~The lighting. I feel like there is such great lighting on this machine. I recently used a different machine and it really makes a difference.
~Its so quiet. I used to sew in the living room and my husband was always complaining about being able to hear the tv.
~The screen. Its large and easy to use. Comes with a styles but I find my finger works just fine.
~The independent bobbin winder motor!!! So awesome to not have to unthread my machine to wind a new bobbin.
~The bobbin thread sensor. Gone are the days of sewing whole seams with no bobbin thread!
I have many more but it would take eons to list them all. I truly can not say enough good things about this machine. I did 2 years of searching before I finally purchased my Symphony and it was so worth it. The Symphony is such a user friendly machine. Right out of the box I was able to set it up and sew within a few minutes. The on screen quick reference guide is so helpful as well as the trouble shooting. I look forward to many years of great sewing and quilting with this machine!
What trennag does not like about this machine
Its not really something I don't like but i feel is worth mentioning. After putting maybe 60 hours of sewing on the my symphony it was making a really weird noise and seemed really bogged down. I took it to my dealer the next day and they said it was my main motor. I was devastated... how could a brand new machine already need a new motor!! My dealer was amazing and said they would order the part Monday and get it replaced as soon as it came in. I called Baby Lock and they assured me that my machine was covered under warranty. When I picked up my machine I talked to my dealer because I was worried I got a lemon. They told me that they have sold and seen many machines and have only had a couple have the motor need to be replaced and nothing else was wrong with the machine. I am so thankful that my dealer was so helpful!
