Euro-Pro Shark Sewing Machine @ Target
Has anyone used the Euro-Pro Shark Intelli-Sew sewing machine? I’m looking at a Target department store flyer and this week they have it marked down from $299 to $199 as a closeout price. It says that it is a computerized machine with over 400 stitch functions and an auto threader. I think that the fine print under the ad might list a model number: No.9110.
Does anyone have any feedback on this machine? I really, really don’t need a machine, but if anyone here says it’s a good machine and a good deal, I might ‘redirect’ some of our grocery money towards it since we have a full freezer to be getting on with.
EDITED TO ADD:
I dug around here on the forum and found only one mention of the Euro-Pro Shark, but it was the similarly named vacuum that was discussed. So then I wandered bravely out into the Internet and read 10 reviews at Patternreview.com and found the complete machine manual at the Euro-Pro Shark website (www.sharkcompany.com). Yikes! I still don’t really know what to do.
So I have a slightly wider question – for those of you here who use the embroidery stitches on your sewing machines, can you tell me what kinds of items you embroider? My current machine (a heavy White from the late 80s named Fred) has everything the Euro-Pro has except for the embroidery stitches, so I’d have to have a good reason to buy the second machine because Fred’s not going anywhere.
Oh, and the model number of the Euro-Pro machine is indeed 9110 but unlike the description in the Target flyer that says the machine has “over 400 stitch functions”, the manual only lists about 250. Hmmmm.
Any ideas or suggestions? Should I just go hug Fred and get sewing Christmas stockings? Thanks, everyone! 🙂 M
