WW is more versed in sewing machines than me but you couldn't hardly buy a warranty for that price. There's 3 yrs on it so looks like a good deal to me, I've never been disappointed with any electrical purchase from Lidls.

I would say "yes". The hardest thing with a new beginner is that you don't know whether you are going to like sewing or not so throwing loads of money at an expensive sewing machine seems a bit daft. It looks like it has the relevant basics and from the looks of the dial, a few embroidery stitches. I think it would be a good investment. Even if you only get it out a couple of times a year to run up some curtains, it would've recouped itself in the cost in no time. By then you would be in a position to decide if you want to invest more.

What would you achieve if you didn't fear failure?

Tringle, couldn't one of us here get one and mail it to you?


I think the weight and the postage would put it wayyyyyyyy out of price range. But not to worry, they usually have the offers here aswell just at different times. I get their newsletters and know a week in advance what they have.

But thanks

I'm so sorry....only just seen this

I have the lidols Lervia sewing machine.
It has all sorts of maintenance accessories, teeny screwdrivers and
whatnot, bobbins and spare needles, a piece of scrap material with
assorted practice stitches on and even some coloured threads! it
does loads of stitches has loads of different, interchangeable 'feet'
(gawd knows what they're all for )

I'm a bit of a novice with machines, preferring hand sewing,
but I've made a few dresses, curtains and school play costumes
on it over the last two years and it's still doing the job just perfectly

I should also add that my horrid sister in law's £700 machine does
less stitches, had shorter warranty and had none of the bits and
bobs included Ha!

Forgot to say, I did get one but haven't had time to play with it yet. I've never used a sewing machine before so going to wait until I've got some time to myself to study it.
