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.
I have not had the machine for long but I read the instruction booklet which was totally clear. I sat down and used the machine straight away. The needle threader was easy to use and the machine very quiet and fast. For the price the machine is excellent.
It takes a bit of getting used to - it's a beast of a machine! But so far I'm impressed with the machine. Delivery from Fabric Mouse was prompt, I had to ring up with a query on the machine which they were able to help me with straight away on the phone. Overall a brilliant machine for the price and great service from Fabric Mouse.
Very helpful on phone helping me to decide on the right machine for me. Could not be more pleased with this sewing machine, is coping really well sewing all my items and the instruction manual is great. Easy to understand and use and seems able to manage with daily use sewing canvas etc. Very good value
Very impressed. Bought the Necchi Q132A as a second machine to handle heavier weight fabrics, specifically tweeds (my favourite). My Janome Memory Craft 5900 QC was struggling with the button holes when coming back down the second side towards the garment fronts. It was also having trouble sewing across the thicker seams, even though all seam allowances were graded. Well priced, strong and easy/straight forward to use.
