    Bought this for my wife but I use it as well.
    The great thing about this machine is the ease of use. The hardest part is putting the hoop on the garment. Make sure you use proper backing. Needle threader is great. You can easily download patterns on USB. Just buy a normal USB. Don't listen to bullshit about special janome one you have to buy. Spend the money on janome thread because is the best and will not break. Plus looks better. You can adjust tensions on the machine for the thread, upper and lower.
    Bad thing about this machine, well only one thing is buy a thread holder stand to stretch the thread a bit before going through the machine because when the thread comes off the roll it has been on there for a while and can twist and tangle easy so really not machines fault.
    Oh and thread ain't cheap when you have to buy lots of colours. But my best thread is glow in the dark thread, good for the kids. $30 a roll a bit extreme but worth it.
    Buy the machine. So easy to use. Don't forget to download the files of internet for patterns Jef or appliqué pattern are best but might have to pay. I have payed for a few and they are cheap and worth it. Make sure "instant" download when you buy.
