Simplicity Satin 197 Sewing Machine with Extension Table and 3 Simplicity Patterns

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quiet. I can still hear myself think while sewing! I have only just started using it but so far I am impressed with how quiet it is. It is very light which will be useful as I take it to workshops from time to time. The instruction manual is very good. Even a complete novice could follow the instructions, it is the best I have ever seen. I am just starting to explore the range of stitches but so far so good. I definitely think I have had a bargain. Thank you Create and Craft for this opportunity. 19 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything you could want from a sewing machine, whether a beginner or more experienced sewer. Having researched lots of machines I decided to take the plunge with this one, especially as I had a chance to "test drive" it with the flexi-pay option before committing. It is the most perfect of machines, offering every feature I was looking for and more. The operation itself is so simple and self-explanatory, although the instruction manual is also very clear, for those who prefer to be guided by the written word. When running it is quiet and stable and produces high quality stitching, with a good selection of embroidery stitches and an alphabet for personalisation. Being able to adjust the speed and having the option to sew without the foot pedal are great additions. This machine will last me for many years to come, perfect for dressmaking, quilting, etc. I already had a selection of feet which I had purchased for my previous (Janome) machine and these all fit my Simplicity perfectly. To sum up, you will not regret buying this machine, as I have yet to come across something it can't do. Take the plunge! 18 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I LOVE THIS MACHINE. WOW what a beauty, IT sews like a dream and is very sturdy but is light enough to move about for classes etc. well worth the money and It has taken the place of my Bernina and Brother in my workroom and in my heart. Just cant stop sewing and it has sailed through all I have thrown at it. I had a small problem with the Darning and eyelet sewing but phoned the customer service number on the back of the manual and they were SOOOO helpful ,a nice young man, Dave, talked me through in a very short time. Very helpful. 15 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab, Fab, Fab this is an amazing machine This machine is so easy to use and does everything perfect. 15 September 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by it didn't work out for me I was delighted when I opened the box and set it up, it was solid and easy to use and if in doubt the instruction booklet was excellent. However I found it didn't really have many more features than my existing basic Janome machine. I thought the lettering would be useful but the lower case "i" looked like an I as the bottom part of the letter joined up with the dot above. Everything I tried to embroider seemed to need an "i" and it just didn't look right. So I decided to send it back. As a basic machine with a few extras it works very well for a beginner but if you want an embroidery function I think money would be better spend on a machine which does more. Sadly it would mean spending more but better that than a disappointing result. 12 October 2016
