I'm a beginner, so I wanted something I didn't have to spend a fortune on and worked right out of the box. Within 15 minutes, I read the manual, had the machine oiled and threaded. I saw reviews that said the directions were bad but I found them simple to follow. I spent over 4 hours on the machine so far. It has performed flawlessly. I broke the thread ONCE going through 6 layers of Nylon and a piece of seat belt webbing with a 9 needle. This machine shifts between stitch patterns flawlessly and works so simply. It comes with tools, feet, and bobbins, but no oil. I bought oil for 3 bucks and oiled it right away, you only have to remove one screw. My only complaint is that I wish I had more room to the right of the needle for sewing in the middle of bulky fabrics.
