Very pleased with this machine. Couldn't wait to get it. Runs smoothly and quietly. Very easy to use. Good Value for money. Would deffinately recommend it.
Purchased for completing school textile project during lockdown. Excellent for the purpose. Light to handle, quiet, and foolproof. Not too many superfluous stitches and gadgets. All the basic requirements are there and work well. Excellent quality for a reasonable price.
So pleased with this machine. Not too noisy, easy to use. Comes with a great range of feet, in particular the one step buttonhole foot is excellent. I actually got this model as a free upgrade from the J3-18 but I definitely think its good value.
I think this machine is great value, and easy to use very happy with it
