The AEG 227 is my second sewing machine and what a step up it is from the last one! I have never used an AEG before, but they are now my favourite brand. The machine is easy to thread, the instructions are very clear and it comes with a range of useful accessories.
The machine was extremely easy to set up following the instructions provided, even for a beginner. The instructions also provide advice on how to use the different stitches of which the machine is capable.
Once I started sewing, I found the pedal responsive and easy to use, giving me great control over my sewing speed. The machine also came with an interchangeable zipper-foot that was very easy to install. The whole product is very intuitive and easy to become used to. I have also used it to sew quite thick layers together, which it did with ease.
Being a beginner at sewing, I have not used it for anything too complicated yet, but I have tried some of the other stitches, including the blind hem stitch, which I think will be very useful in my dress-making. There are a large number of different stitches available, as well as an automatic button hole which will come in handy as I grow in experience and take on more complicated projects.
Overall, the machine is lightweight, easy to use, and also quiet when operating; in conclusion a sturdy, well-built machine perfect for a beginner or a more experienced sewer.
