|It's Operator Error||Mar 11, 2015||Susan Starr||Naples Fl US|
|I just want to say to the people complaining about the bobbin that it is usually operator error and not the machine. You will hear this all the time from beginners. What you need to do first is make sure the bobbin is wound tight and not mushy or the thread will sneak out around the edge and cause a big problem. It's NOT the tension. Also when the thread "balls up" on the bottom of your fabric it's NOT the bobbin thread or tension. It's the TOP thread that isn't properly threaded. ALWAYS keep your presser foot UP when threading the machine so that the thread gets between the tension discs. When the presser foot goes down the discs close and there is now tension on the top thread. In 20 years of sewing I've only had to adjust the tension maybe 10 times due to the tricky fabric. When you buy a new machine the tension is ALREADY set for you. Don't fool with it! Please try the above things and see if your machine doesn't work perfectly! (I know these are old reviews but maybe someone buying a new machine will read this and give this machine a chance!)|

|Just borrowed this machine from a neighbor to do some quick sewing. I am a beginner sewer who has not used a real machine like this since High School sewing class, which was many years ago. The manual is straight forward and easy to read. The bobbin is very easy to correct the tension if you read the manual. I encountered the same problem with the bobbin string being loose, but after looking closely at the diagrams, it was very easy to fix. Great product, lots of features. I highly recommend this product.|
|How do you raise the bobbin...||Apr 8, 2009||Marsha Osborne||Valrico Fl US|
|This is definitely not a machine for beginners like myself. I was really looking forward to sewing cute little outfits for my shih tzu and sewing my drapes. I have done a lot of DIY home improvement projects on my own before, and it's very frustrating to me that I cannot seem to perform a simple action like pulling up the bobbin thread in this machine. Each time I pull the thread up, when I start sewing, it tangles. Maybe I just don't know what I'm doing since I'm a beginner, so I would not recommend this machine to beginners, becuase the instruction manual you get with the machine is very vague also.|

|This is a good basic machine. The only problem I have with it is the bobbin rattles out of adjustment and start to ball the thread on the under seam. While the machine can be adjusted, it usually wastes a lot of thread in the process and it can be very frustrating if you are trying to finish a project. A guide on the bobbin to ease adjustment would help, currently it can be adjusted but it is trail and error.|
