Could not knit more than 6 stitches. It always jammed. Watched the DVD, checked everything over and over. Went on line and found other people had the same problems and couldn't seem to find a solution. A coworker told me she had bought one years ago and couldn't get it to work either but kept her's too long to return to Joannes fabric for a refund. The clerk at Joannes Fabric said they hadn't any complaints. My friend also pointed out it doesn't have a built in tension so your hands determine the tension as the yarn feeds through your fingers. My mother had a Brother machine when I was a kid 50 yrs ago and that worked like a charm and had a tension wire for the yarn to feed through.
