Here's the story. Every machine that I have ever owned have been Singer brand. Recently I have had a very crappy experience with the last machine I bought which I have had for less than a year and after bringing it in to get repaired the man told me that the timing was off, the gears weren't properly working, and the upper tension adjustment knob had a manufacture defect. Not very impressed for something that I've had for less than a year.
I needed a sewing machine so I went out to the local Costco and bought a "temporary" replacement that I wasn't planing on keeping, but only using to finish off one hem on a garment that was going to be worn in a fashion show that counted as my exam in one of my university classes. Turns out I kind of like the machine and may keep it, but I want to do some research on it first.
It is a Euro-Pro Intelli-Sew 400 Model 9136C.
I know nothing of Euro-Pro brand sewing machines and I can't seem to find anything online for my specific machine. I can't even find a picture. Not sure if that is a good thing or not.
I found this photo, not exactly my machine, but I think it is the model under it:
I paid $299 CAD for it and Costo will give me a full refund if I want to return it. Dang I love Costco for their return policy.
I use my sewing machine for pretty much everything from making handbags and dog collars to alterations and garment construction.
Any feedback is much appreciated.
