IKEA SY Sewing Machine Review
IKEA started selling SY sewing machine just for $59. It is the cheapest sewing machine on the market, which can sew real things. It is small, light-weight, very simple and easy to use. IKEA SY is not a toy, like Michley sewing machines. It is the perfect machine for basic sewing and beginners at very affordable price.
IKEA SY has 13 built-tin preset stitches: 3 varios length straight stitches, 3 varios zig zag, some decorative and utility stitches. Also it has 4-step buttonhole sewing feature. All you need to start lern sewing ar for basic sewing.
To select the stitch you only need to turn the operation dial and that's it.
Very big and intuitive reverse lever for sewing in reverese
Thread tension dial to set the tension depending on the fabric and threads for perfect seam.
Automatic bobbing winding
Free arm for sewing narrow tubular items, like sleeves.
Built-in handle for easy carying
Guides on the needle plateand built-in manual thread cutter
I would recommend IKEA SY to absolute begginers in sewing, the interfase of this machine is very-very simple; for sewing classes - it is smaller and lighter then usual sewing machine; and it is perfect for people who don't sew often - the price is very affordable and it is very compact.
