"Just purchased the 8500Q as a 'gift' to myself. I had originally seen a similar machine on a tele shopping site and 'dreamed' of owning a machine with these type of features I then wandered onto a website selling the 8500Q and realised that it had all the features at a much more reasonable price - when it arrived I thought I would struggle however threading is easy peasy for top and bottom bobbins. The user manual is clear. I am not a novice but certainly not an expert, however with this machine I feel I can move up a level given the quality of the work I will be able to produce" ~ Barbara
