Pretty good Review by Anita

Real quilting machines are hard to find, especially in this price range. What I find great is that I got it to do the real work, going through heavy duty layers. The only issues I had was a bit of bouncing at times, but only when really pushing hard. Also, I feel that needle, for the work I do might be a little on the fragile side, but it hasn't broken yet. Shipping, setting it up and everything else was just fine, but it had a little hair crack on the cover, it's not a big issue. (Posted on 14-10-04)
It's ok Review by Morgan

I have constant issues with the bobbin with this one and with threading, but when it works it works fine. The machine needs a few inches of thread in order for it to keep the thread, so, for a machine of its caliber, I’d say it’s a bit too tweaky, needs a bit too much fiddling than what I would have wanted. It also does this sound, like it gets chocked, and you need to turn the wheel to get it back on track. It’s a bit too fiddly, but it works… Other than that, it is sturdy, it works well, when it’s not temperamental. I wish It came with an extension table, but for heavy duty work it works. The problems I experience with it, that I’ve talked about above, it’s a bit hard to totally recommend it, but when it works it works so fine. Also, I wish it could do more stitch patterns, so, well, I guess it was a bit of a hit and miss with me. (Posted on 14-08-17)
Great workhorse Review by Callie

For a entry level, heavy duty machine this is the right one! It does the job and it handles heavy loads. It’s also so easy to use, so straightforward. If you need to do some real work, this is it. (Posted on 14-08-10)

I’m in LOVE with this amazing machine! It seems to be built really well, and I have no problems threading it. I adore the attachment for the needle threader! Everything works great! (Posted on 14-08-07)

I couldn’t wrap my head around one of those machines that have a computer onboard. Something about heavy duty machines and computers doesn’t compute with me (sic!), and so I gave this machine a hard look as it really seemed to be what I needed. And, what I found about it is that the HD1000 does a great job, is not one of those temperamental machine, it goes through thick and thin and gets the job done. I go through 5 to 8 layers of material with it and it gets the job done. Also, the metal box it has is really great and it gives you this feeling of ruggedness and it came with great accessories. All I did before I got it to work was reduce the tension in the bobbin, as for my zig-zag work the tension needed to be a little less. In terms of the things you need to do to keep it working, the raising of the needle and other things are easy to learn (but hard to remember in my case!) but it’s not such an issue to figure out. The plastic shell of the machine looks a bit weak and when the machine works through many layers the shell is vibrating. So, a bit clunky, a fit fiddly, but it works fine; I do recommend it.

This machine is two great things in one: simple and tough! It powers through any sewing project. Even with as sturdy as it is, it’s still easy to transport and set up anywhere. I’m so happy! (Posted on 14-05-05)
Solid machine Review by Cass

This machine is powerful, it’s the real deal. For a new machine I was amazed that it was ready to use so fast; I set it and I got it working. It’s smooth, so much quieter than my older “tank” and I also got everyone using it in no time. It’s a no nonsense machine for real heavy duty work. It's a lot smaller then some semi-industrial machines, but it’s still a great machine. I really recommend it, you will not be disappointed. (Posted on 14-04-01)

By no means am I a seamstress, but I had some gear that I needed to fix, and my wife’s machine was 20 years old and just couldn’t handle it. The second I set this new one up, and it plowed right through corduroy and nylon without any trouble at all. (Posted on 14-02-27)

This machine is the Sherman tank of sewing. It has helped me finish tent cases, Cub Scout patches, couch covers, and other thick fabrics without any hesitation! There’s a video online of a guy using this thing to sew through a yardstick… the power is incredible. I love it! (Posted on 14-02-07)
