    It's early days yet since purchase, but so far I am more than pleased. The software connected first time and all works well.. Sewing Machine Sales were 'perfect' to buy from as usual.

    It was not that quick to get used to the machine, if you want to save time, you definitely need to buy the accessories. I am not very familiar with the software yet, I guess it will take me some time too. I must say that the seller has a very good service.

    After an absence of 30 years from machine knitting my retirement from full time work seemed a good time to start again. My skills are rusty to say the least but theSK840 electronic is proving very forgiving, definitely worth the outlay. Ordering was easy delivery fast and as I bought the silver link at the same time the discount was appreciated. I did buy Softbyte direct though as I wanted the full knitting package release 9. Happy customer who will be back for the ribber once i am completely up on my skills with the 840.

    Very pleased to replace my vintage knitting machine with the SK840, with its potential for computer control through DesignaKnit software. A minor criticism of Silver Reed (rather than Sewing Machine Sales) was that the manual hadn't been properly updated for the computer control- though this didn't get in the way of getting on with knitting. The price was good, especially with free postage. Quick delivery. Lots of Christmas presents produced.

    Amazing machine, I’m still learning even though I can appreciate the quality and the functionality with the intarsia tool, colour changer and the software. Highly recommended!!
