Reader Reviews : Review Your Sewing Machine

By

Do you love your sewing machine, or is it just so-so? Use this space to submit a sewing machine review, and share the pros and cons of your machine with members of the online quilting community.

Tell us what you like best about your sewing machine, and which features you feel need improvement. Have you had the sewing machine for awhile, or is it brand new? Do you feel its cost was reasonable, considering its capabilities of course? Include details you feel will be of interest to other quilters.

Please do not type in all-caps. Reviews in all-caps will not be published.

Elna Carina Sewing Machine

I never ended up using the little cartridges that it came with to change the stitches, but I only sew straight stitches anyway. I have lost the tool kit it came with, so I pray that I never have to c…More
