don't forgot TCB 3 or 6%

Noooo don't do it! I have had three of these which all broke and in the end I got my money back. Each time I returned I saw a different staff member who told me lots of people had bought them back. Make sure you keep the receipt.

thanks ordered just now

+10%student discount - code MUDN14HC - dont know if it works for everyone

Thank you just ordered for my daughter's.

Thanks OP!:)

One small warning ... it maybe nothing !
When you get to the payment page, the secure https page vanishes!
I was able to get the secure page by going directly to the website(rather than the link) but even then the website does not ask for securecard details which was also a bit peculiar since all websites ask for that credit card company!

I bought one of these for smaller jobs. Tried using it and it's the worst thing I have ever bought. Returned it to Hobby Craft and the look on the sales ladies face said it all. I asked if they get many back and she said most are returned and that staff wished they didn't sell them as it's them that have to deal with the irate customers.

Reviews looked good ile risk it for £10 I payed via paypal to be safe ad I can always return it

I'd also like to know this - after a mini one for my daughter's Christmas present as we don't have room for a full size one, but don't want to buy something that's going to break.

The Janome Mini ones are supposed to be quite good for the size. £39 on Hobbycraft at the minute so if you use the above code it's only £31.20. I wouldn't expect wonders from any of the "mini" ones though to be fair

Not expecting it to do wonders, as long as it does what it does effectively and reliably then that's fine.
So (just so I understand what she would be missing), what would a 'proper' full size one do that the mini ones don't?

Had been thinking of one of these amazon.co.uk/Com…15U
Any good?

I opted for that instead as they do a variety of stitches and looks sturdier.

£31.20 delivered not bad for just hemming and repairing etc

Really? Was about to buy one until I read this. Think I'll leave it lol. Thanks

I've had one for about a month and used it for four jobs so far. I've been impressed by how well it works. Admittedly I haven't tested long term reliability. My guess is most of the people who have had trouble haven't figured out how to thread the bobbin.

If your daughter is only using it for basic stuff the Janome should be fine, a full size might be quite daunting with all of it's features if she's new to sewing machines! The mini ones can only do a few different stitches and will therefore have limited use compared to a full size. The one the OP posted would be pretty useless for the vast majority of jobs to be honest, only does one type of stitch and it won't cope with any thick fabrics. I expect the Janome would deal much better with a variety of fabrics, it looks a lot more sturdy and offers more stitches

Thanks. Appreciate the advice.
She's used the school sewing machines, so isn't exactly new to it all.
I'd love to get her a full size one, but we simply don't have the space. We'll need to pack it all away after each use and store it in a (limited space) cupboard.

My OH works for Hobbycraft.

She says these mini sewing machines are constantly breaking and being returned as they are made from cheap plastic. Customers often ask her which sewing machines in Hobbycraft she recommends - she doesn't recommend any!!!

No problem! If you're near a Hobbycraft it might be worthwhile popping in and looking at the sizes, some of the full size ones are actually quite compact and light nowadays. My mum got a cheap full size one (think it was the brother LS14) from there and I was shocked by how light it was compared to her old sewing machine, fits in the kitchen cupboard too!

Do you think it would be feasible to create some big curtains with this thing?
