|What bellasnanny likes about this machine|
The cosmetic features are lovely. It does have a lot of decorative stitches and it is easy to navigate the prompts on the large LCD screen. It has a speed control feature, and needle threader that works well. The button holes are nice.
What bellasnanny does not like about this machine
Having worked on Vikings for 10+ years, I had high hopes for this machine. I purchased it off HSN, having watched the promo video numerous times and researching the company. I also had a chance to test out a different Juki model at a quilt show(more expensive model)-and the rep touted the "industrial machine features' that the line has.
Well perhaps the fact it was an online product indicates low quality. Right out of the box the tension was off-which bothered me a lot since that meant it needed a service tech to do some adjusting. Also, I noticed that when it sews at the faster pace, the machine produces a thudding sound-and it was evident when I tried free motion quilting on a practice sandwich. Since I purchased it for the features it promised for quilting, I was disappointed. Overall,it just felt cheaply made and I worried it would not hold up for long. I did a side by side sewing test with the Viking Scandinavia 200 and the viking stitched better and sounded more stable as it stitched.
I sent it back and am now looking for a used viking.
I have learned my lesson!
