How is this compared to Ikea's one … How is this compared to Ikea's one http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/30208975/



Not sure how it compares. But I've heard the John Lewis one is actually made by Janome who are renowned for their high quality and reliability.

Do you think this would be able to sow through 3 pieces of denim? Im wanting to turning up so jeans but the way that you do it requires the needle to go through 3 pieces at a time! Im concerned as it says 'Suitable fabrics: Light'

thanks ordered as a present for myself

Is the Ikea one actually a "mini" one? I thought it was full size.

Just bought one for myself. I know a lot of the reviewers say they bought it for their kids, but it does state it's for beginners, which I most certainly am and £35 is a nice price. Thanks for the deal and have some heat.

i just got two of these for my girls buy most of my stuff from john lewis great value for money.:)

I can recommend some great quality sewing thread to go with it - Amazon Link

Bought the 23 set - great stuff and colours.





I bought one of these for my girlfriend last year when they were £50 and she loves it. Highly recommended aty this price.

Bought this at full price a couple of months ago for 9 year old. Very happy with it. Staff in JL said it is good for sewing thin fabrics e.g cotton & making dolls clothes etc.

i got one of these a year ago . its solid and does the job nicely we use it for general sewing and repairs
. not for very thick fabrics or wounds since it is not sterile .... i dont regret buying it at all .
the ikea one looks better (more options)but heavier and bigger .

i too got one for my girlfriend last year and she is very happy with it

I went ahead and bought it, I am a beginner so I am sure it will be suitable for what I need it for .... Thanks op for posting x

thanks op

I bought one of these last year at full price and have since made many things including a full double patch work quilt, so can be used for larger projects than the 'light use' or something that it claims. Great product over all!

i have been meaning to get myself a sewing machine for a couple of years now; will certainly be getting one in purple at this price... cannot wait!

I bought one of these from first seeing it on here and it's brilliant for small jobs. Feels sturdy and simple instructions for idiots who haven't sewn since high school

Just bought one of these for Uni so I can continue sewing! So excited for it to come! Beautiful colour and a bargain price! Can't lose!
