Professional seamstress here: this is a basic machine. It's great for piecing cotton together, sewing lite duty things.

It will *not* go through real denim for a professional looking hem without the stars aligning. You will have to hand crank it, which is absolutely acceptable if you aren't hemming jeans every day.
You will still need a denim needle (90/14 minimum) and a hump-jumper. And some skill Smilie

This is a starter machine.

If you want to do heavy duty work you are better off with an old machine with all metal gears inside. They were built very well and made to last. (And to sew denim).

Again, nothing wrong with this machine for simple mending and for starting. Smilie

Good luck!

Just go buy some jean needles. This machine will work fine for that.

u can buy different needles for sewing machines. Heavy duty needles for jeans or thicker materials. This Would be cheaper than buying a different sewing machine.

This machine doesn't have as many stich patterns as others but for the price I would totally get it if I didn't already have one.

In for 1. Thx OP. Gift for my daughter. Returning another one I got last week for double the price. She just needs an entry level one so this should fit the bill.

I want one. But need a more durable one with thicker needles for hemming jeans.

But first I have to take a sewing class.

What does this normally go for? Is it a reliable model?

I'm wondering if better deals could be had on Craigslist...people often buy these and never use them.

Make sure to get needles and thread for jeans. You can get them at JoAnn's fabric store or Hobby Lobby.

You will need to practice sewing on jeans/denim material before start hemming. I cut the length of jeans I need (and make sure to cut longer than you need for rolling the hem for stitching) and just use the extra jean fabric for practice sewing. You do that to adjust any tensions on the sewing machine and see if stiches look fine.

I'm sure you can find beginner sewing videos on YouTube. JoAnn's also has classes you can take for fees. Sometimes, they have "half off classes" days on weekends. When you sign up for a class during the weekend, most of classes are half off.

I have a Brother computerised sewing machine. Since I don't do much fancy stiches anyway, this machine probably is enough for my needs.

I mainly make Halloween costumes and hem jeans/pants with the sewing machine.

Probably a dumb question, but do they typically supply the jeans/denim for those classes? If they don't provide: I'm thinking it would be most ideal to buy some beat up jeans from the thrift store to practice on for this purpose
