Default Michley Lil Sew & Sew Machine?

Does anyone have this model? Do you like it?

Shop for the Michley Lil' Sew & Sew Desktop Sewing Machine for less at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.

I'm wondering if it's any good for card sewing. A friend gave me a lil Provo craft machine and it's a piece of junk! I know that the Janome mini is liked by many BUT I'm wondering about this machine specifically. I have a full size Bernina but want something small just for cards...

Thanks - Wendy

That looks exactly (except for the colours) like the little Singer I bought for card making. I also use it for quick repairs like hemming or fixing a seam. It works ok, but you can tell its light in construction.

Read the reviews. It sounds like the machine will run without pressing the pedal.

The Janome Mini is only $10 more at Handcock Fabrics when it's on sale-which is often. Gina K has a series of wonderful video tutorials on the Mini. The one thing I object to with the Mini is that it is loud and hurts my ears so I just put a pad under it when I use it.

I do sew and don't want to get paper lint in the 'workings' of my full size machine. The Mini is perfect to crafting.

I sew quite a bit too. My husband just rolled his eyes when I told him I think I found the final machine for paper crafting (it was the 3rd one I bought). He asked why I just didn't use one of the other 3 sewing machines I have... I asked him why he didn't just use the the same 3 golf clubs for everything. I think he understood then... besides sewing machines are cheaper than the drivers he buys.

I wish they sold the Janome Mini some place here.

Thanks for the feedback I'm going ahead with ordering the Michley one.
