    4Good first sewing maching
    By Aleece Hottell
    This is a good sewing machine for a small kid to learn on. It is the only child's sewing machine that I could find with a bobbin thread (without that, the stitch comes out as soon as you remove the fabric from the machine.). Overall, we are very happy with it and my daughter has already made 2 projects, including the bag that is included in the kit. She can't wait to start the skirt this weekend.
    The only problems that we have had is some difficulty trying to keep it threaded (which is remedied by pulling out extra thread before starting to sew) and losing the manual that explains the threading, which we found online from the ALEX website with no problem.
    Be aware that this machine requires pretty constant adult supervision, as it is a real machine and not a toy.

    3Brief Description of My Experience
    By Kimi Kelliebrew
    The machine is just like the larger ones except smaller but it needs a light over the needle area and because it is very necessary for an adults assistances it needs a little more room for bigger fingers and most of all I think any child under the age of 8yrs old will have a problem waiting to get the machine sewing. As I said it's just like the larger machine and it has all the mechanic as the larger version. The tension seems to change with different materials so that slows down the process. Overall it's a nice little sewing machine but if you don't have the patience or time to help your child it's a waste of money.

    1don't buy!
    By Marie L. Leaf
    I am an experienced seamstress and wanted to teach my 7 year old granddaughter to sew on her own little machine. I fought with it and gave up when the bottom tension would not adjust, then the spring flew out nad I couldn't find it! No way would I recommend this machine. The time on return had expired since she doesn't get to visit often so I am stuck with a machine that does not work for $78 when I could have bought a real machine for a few more dollars. Very disappointed.
