Abysmal. Do not buy the Euro-Pro Dressmaker 998B. It is marketed as "easy to use" but it is not. Even looking on line for troubleshooting for threading the thing, I could not manage to get the bottom bobbin to properly pick up.

I received this Euro-Pro Dressmaker sewing machine 4 years ago. It works well. I have made fabulous craft products with it. However, the threading is very complicated. Although it runs well I am very, very pleased to say that I will be getting a new sewing machine very soon… Read Full Review

I felt like a loser trying to figure out how to use the Euro-Pro Dressmaker 998B Sewing machine! I am very old, and I do not have a life, so I wanted something to fill it.
It took me away from more important things, like looking for a date on the internet. I am available and have this stupid sewing machine to prove it… Read Full Review
