Lovely machine and great service
At the moment I’m practicing with the machine and I’m very impressed with it. Can’t wait to begin sewing a project on it.
Excellent machine & recommendation
I was in the market for a replacement for my Brother FS-40 machine which was on 40w and served me well but was struggling with some items I am starting to make such as bags and working with multi layered products- was thinking about the Singer Heavy Duty range then I watched a u tube review by Abi then the Fabric Mouse video - I am delighted with this mechanical machine, fab power & control, excellent stiching and in my budget range as a new hobby. Brother machine was a reasonable into but my needs are well served by this simple to use machine - hope to get many years service from it.
Amazing For Beginners
I was completely new to sewing machines...where to start? I happened on two very positive reviews on YouTube of this machine. One review by the vendor Fabric Mouse and the other by Abi's Den (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZX61-TcPi0&t=314s) So I took the plunge and spoke briefly to Jean at Fabric Mouse. I needed a machine to repair sails for my boat and to make some canvas accessories for it. However, the first tasks I attempted went extremely well; replacing a zipper in a favourite pair of shorts, cutting down and hemming some torn denims, and lastly sewing on some buttons. All these 3 tasks went better than I could have expected. Overall I have been very impressed with the power and robustness of this machine. The instruction manual is very easy to follow for a newbie like me. I'm sure the table extension will really come in handy as I don't have lots of space at home.
Great piece of kit, excellent manual.
Got started right away. I’m a complete novice so I have some practice to do but I’m on my way! Excellent delivery time.
Ok- so the experience with Fabric mouse was very good. We'd watched their YouTube video which was very clear and it sold it to us. The machine arrived the next day as promised. It seems a tough workhorse: not as all singing and dancing as some but realistically as capable as most would want. The table is a great hit: saves lots of fighting fabric. Disclosure- we're not beginners but not vastly experienced so I initially found it a bit of a racehorse. There's no adjustment for speed on the machine, but underneath the controller there's a small hole to access an adjustable resistor which gave a bit more low end speed control for tricky bits. It's motor definitely has some grunt and several layers of denim or leatherette doesn't phase it. It's a world of difference from an old standard domestic machine we'd been using and I think we've made a good choice. It was worth a little more to have a heavy duty machine which we feel will cope with the tasks we have for it and will probably last a long time. Derek and Anita.
