  • “I bought this model the other day. Before that, a lot of sewing machines were reviewed, however, the price is not the affordable, or something else. As a result, I went to the store, saw, bought. At home, I made a check at once. I hemmed jeans and almost in one evening sewed a suit for belly dance (chiffon, satin, brocade). I am satisfied so much! I advise everyone!”
  • “For the home use it is an excellent sewing machine, the price is acceptable and the quality …. yes. Many people say it works not quietly, it’s true. but not so noisy as others can be. The promised functions work for 5. For home use I advise … of course for those who earn money by sewing, then it is necessary to buy the stronger model, and super for amateurs!”
  • I bought it 5 years ago and still use this beautiful machine. Before we had a very expensive sewing machine for 2 years and were not much satisfied. And this is an excellent machine, and not expensive”
  • “I decided to buy a sewing machine for my daughter. Certainly not so expensive and smart and bought this one. Well, to say, I honestly expecting the worst. But in practice the machine sews perfectly, the daughter hasn’t any problems with it. There is no noise from it. In general, pleasantly surprised.”
