Customers love the Project Runway CS5055PRW because it’s simple to use, simple to clean and makes sewing easy.
Some of the more advanced seamstresses that use their machines heavily say that this machine isn’t performing as well as when they first bought the machine, but other than that, there have hardly been any complaints. The only other complaints, which were very minor, were the machine unthreading every time the user cut the thread, which was more of an annoyance than the fault of the machine, and the machine not being made of a lightweight plastic.
All of the beginner seamstresses rave about how easy it is to set up and use, and how much they’ve learned on this machine. It comes highly recommended as a first sewing machine for beginners, but will do more advanced projects just as easily.
