I needed a machine that would cope with all sorts of fabrics as i make theatre/ opera/ TV/ and film costumes.
This one was one that caught my eye. I have never had a digital machine before so was willing to give it a go.
Can not find any real faults with it just a few little niggles, The first and main one is the position of the reverse button. Most of the time when i sew i am not in the habit of looking for the reverse button as it tends to be by itself somewhere on the machine but on this one it is positioned between 2 other buttons....which i kept hitting by mistake.
The other niggle was the fact that i could not sew and wind the bobbin at the same time.
Only small things but time wasters.
Never had a machine that has all the fancy stitches on it either and i found this great fun to play with and loved the effect of the sewing.
Did get very excited about the eyelet sewer but as of yet have not managed to control it enough...so will still have to do by hand.
All in all i think the AEG 680 machine is excellent and i would highly recommend it.
