Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Recommend I bought the sewing machine by Kenmore about 6 months ago and I wish I used it before 3 months because I would have returned the sewing machine right away for a refund. The sewing machine tangles up the thread periodically and you have to re-thread the machine which is not convenient. Hope this helps you when you decide to order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am very happy with it. After trying different, inexpensive, sewing machines from Walmart I am thrilled with this one. The cost the machine is great. I don't do much sewing. Just basic hemming so I did not want a complicated machine with a lot of bells and whistles. This one has the basic stitches that I would use. Easy to assemble and use. My mom, who does a lot more sewing, used it and loved it. She used it to sew curtains and was happy as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, great machine Purchased on sale for a great price. I have only used this sewing machine for a month and I do not sew a lot. The fabrics I use are quite varied; from thick, thin, stretch, slippery etc. This machine has worked well for everything I have done so far. There are more stitch options that I will ever use!! Threading the machine is easy and I like the built in thread cutter. I would have preferred a metal presser foot but it is available to purchase as an option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine for the price This sewing machine offers all the basics. It is easy to use and very lightweight. I purchased this machine as a Xmas gift for my mother and we both find it easy to use. It does not have the one-step button hole maker, but that doesn't really matter because we mostly use it for blankets and simple sewing projects. A great little machine for a good price!

I'm looking a heavier duty sewing machine.

I have Kenmore computerized machine. But, I need one to sew heavier fabric and leather. I replace a lot of zippers and do a lot of mending. I love my Kenmore, but I want another more heavy duty machine.
Asked by: seamstressmich
Hello seamstressmich, We recommend that you try Kenmore®/MD Limited Edition 17-stitch Sewing Machine. It has a lot of positive reviews about mending and even installing zippers. Thank you for shopping at Sears. Have a great day!

Continuous Grinding

Hello! I just bought this machine for myself at Christmas (7 months ago). Almost every time I use it, it stops working and just makes awful grinding sounds. If I tilt the machine backward, and set it back down sometimes the grinding stops and it works fine...for about 4 stitches and then it starts grinding again. I've followed all the instructions to ensure proper threading, cleaned out the hook race, the feed dogs etc and it just keeps happening. I also follow the directions on what my stitch settings should be at according to the manual. Could someone please let me know why this keeps happening?! It's very frustrating. I'm a newbie when it comes to sewing and this is just deterring me from wanting to continue.
