|What JTink likes about this machine|
Variety of stitches
Push Button Stop/Start
Optional use of foot pedal
Easy snap on feet
Love the very easy to use needle threader(It's a lot different from the one on most mechanicals I've seen)
Just a note: the machine pictured here, is not the Baby Lock Tempo. The Crafter's Choice was the precursor to the Tempo. I'll try to post a picture in this review.
Picture of the Tempo:
What JTink does not like about this machine
Difficult to thread and difficult to wind the bobbin. What makes these difficult is the limited space around the spool of thread. There is one step on winding the bobbin, that has you take the thread through an awkward route. If you have problems with your fingers or hands, make sure you thread and wind the bobbin before you buy it. I like the old way of winding a bobbin, by putting the thread through the little hole. With this machine, you have to wrap it around the actual bobbin.
If you don't hold it all tight enough, the bobbin will not wind with out a lot of wonky mess.
The needle thread threader is nice, but will not work with anything smaller than a size 11 needle(I usually use 9's but have learned to use 11's)
You can't wind the bobbin with the foot pedal plugged into the machine. I like using my foot pedal so have to unplug and replug everytime I wind the bobbin.
The bobbin case cover is difficult to get open. I have a problem pulling back the little lock with my fingers, I use tweezers or the eraser on my pencil/pen.
