That said as described it does not have a light and do find that an issue especially for threading the needle.Since my primary goals are simple crafts & occasional clothing repairs, a basic machine serves my needs well.As for beginners, I would be careful only because it goes really fast but other than that I am very please with it.It is very small and looks more like a kids type Machine but I still really like it because I don’t sew much.Thought this is a great idea because it’s basic, lightweight and reasonably inexpensive compared to others.I have to say I did love it the couple times I used it.Good directions and you can also find helpful YouTube videos too! I been using this for a month and love it! Only thing I wish it had was an extender table.Having many years of experience sewing, I really felt that she needed to wait until she was 8 years old so that she did not get frustrated and end up hating sewing.If you want to learn about adjusting and fiddling with and the ins and outs of sewing machine operation, then this will be fine.It went right through 6 layers of flannel & was easy to thread and figure out.I don’t sew myself so we needed a simple affordable machine.Disappointing.Make sure you have strong thread, nothing cheap.I’ve been making them until now with the singer hand quick sew and it has gotten frustrating using that thing.This machine is for my new hobby of paper crafting.A little difficult to thread.Cons: no built in light, yes you can add a clip in light but Threading is difficult without a built in light.

First off it came missing parts I called Amazon and they referred me to the company when I finally reached someone they sent out the missing parts it was just a let down getting something for Christmas and not being able to use it. I’m not like… a seamster or anything… but this little guy can sew.I had to push it through or help it through.I have 2 girls that are almost 6 and 8.(I worked OK for the first few projects.I have big, fancy Janome machines, so I felt more comfortable choosing this over the generic ‘toy’ portables.Looked perfect for her.Very well made.It was very easy to set up and use Purchased the Janome\New Home Portable Sewing Machine for a five year old who has been wanting a sewing machine for over a year and a half.I can take it over to my sister’s house if her and I are working on something together just as easily as I can take it from room to room in my own house.After reading some reviews on children’s sewing machines I settled on the Janome which was touted as being one of the higher quality machines in it’s class.This is a great running light weight machine that I have confidence in while I relearn so much.She had outgrown the “sew cool” felt machine and was inspired by Project Runway Jr.If my niece had been interested in sewing, I would have kept it for her.Lars) With this machine I can do just about everything that I do with my full sized one.After a few lessons, she can easily use it with just a little supervision.My nieces 8 and 11 have been sewing for a few years with my supervision when I visit.

I just needed it to do basic alterations on clothes and small crafts projects around the apartment.If it isn’t thats how the clumping starts.I have to say I’m impressed with this little thing as it has been easy to use for my daughter.Unfortunately it’s not super strong and I’ve had both needles break already but other than that it’s a great machine to get started on.The fact that it’s mint green and looks great in my room is a plus! I’m not doing any large projects at the moment, so it meets my needs perfectly.I researched a lot and finally picked this one.This works great for all of that.Lightweight, easily stored, priced well.I read many of the reviews before I purchased this little gem, and so was not surprised or disappointed in any way.She has much better control of the machine and the fabric than she did on my machine.I myself have never used a machine and was a little nervous about the whole thing.I told them I needed it back so I could return it but I just got it back on Valentine’s day which is 2 weeks too late to return the sewing machine.We’re very happy with it.It works and would be great for a child.After one class, I was told by my instructor that it is TOO basic, lacks some features that make leaning to see easier (a light and removable feet, and thread cutter, for example.It’s a tiny sewing machine, making it very portable.Granddaughter has been making lots of things, including masks.It doesn’t like bulky fabrics or too many layers, but it is perfect for her to learn on and I use it for repairs and to make her doll clothes.Nice little machine for my uses so far.entry-content –><!– .
