QUESTION: CAN IT SEW TODDLER QUILTS
I think anything thicker than blue jeans would be questionable . Even with that you must change the needle. Read the expects on the needle . I mostly use it to hem my pants- that's all
If u could get one that's not dysfunctional and if the quilt its not to thick
Im sure it can, but ive never used it. It was a gift. So i havent tried it in that sense
not with the needle attached! The needle breaks when you have three layers of cotton! I changed the needles and it works better, but the whole machine is simply a miscreation, it changes stitches while sewing, the thread breaks all the time no matter how much one regulates it.
I pretty sure it will.
I would think yes, depending on the type of fabric you'll use. The instruction manual says not to use it on terrycloth and the like, type material. I haven't used mine much yet, but the stitches seem strong enough for the type of "abuse" a child would put a quilt through. The only thing I don't like about it is the foot peddle is too lightweight.

QUESTION: WHAT FEET DOES THIS MACHINE HAVE?
It has a simple two prong presser foot
I do not respond to questions such as this. I do not take unnecessary surveys
Don't remember. Purchased it. Used it twice and donated it to goodwill. It couldn't keep even thread pressure. Too light for a boat anchor and too big for a door stop.
This is a very basic sewing machine.

QUESTION: IS THE THREAD TENSION ON THIS MACHINE NORMALLY NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TURN? AND IF ITS NOT AM I CORRECT IN MY UNDERSTANDING THAT 1 IS LOOSEST?
to be honest - i have given up on this machine - i am currently looking for another one.... on my tension - it turns fine, but i can not get it to be as tight/loose as i would like - it keeps messing up - more of an annoyance than anything else. i seem to be fixing it more than sewing. i'm sorry i wasted $60 some on it when i could have put it toward a nicer machine.
It Worked fine for the job that I bought it for. The tension seemed fine just wish it would take bigger spools of thread. For 45 bucks can't ask for much!
That's exactly why I dumped it and purchased a Brothers sewing machine!!
No, you're absolutely right. I have been trying to look up what has been going on, but I can't seem to fix it. 1 should be the loosest, but I honestly cannot find a difference between all the numbers. I know this isn't much help, but I hope you figure it out! Happy New Year!

QUESTION: CAN YOU CHANGE THE PRESSER FOOT? I NEED TO USE A ZIPPER FOOT, I KNOW IT'S NOT INCLUDED BUT CAN IT BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY?
This machine is good for beginning to sew but I would not recommend it for putting in a zipper. It's not that heavy duty.
Hello, I'm sorry but I can't help you because I return this machine, it's to compact for me. Have a nice day.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Review

QUESTION: HOW MANY LBS DOES IT WEIGH? THANK YOU
On my bathroom scale it weighs approx 4.5 pounds. It certainly DOES have a power cord. It works well enough for me to be making an entire wardrobe of shirts, jackets, skirts, and pants out of linen. I have a very high end Brother, which is so complicated to use that for simple seams and zigzags I would rather use my Sunbeam. Also, it does do two types of button holes, it has three different straight stitches and a number of different zigzag stitches. I love my little Sunbeam. It's lightweight enough that I can take it with me everywhere.
Didn't come with a power cord, you get what you pay for doesn't work well. Weighs around 2-3 pounds which is good didn't take much muscle to throw out.
It is very light weight. I am unsure exactly but would say less than 5 pounds.
no idea. did you read my review??
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: I'M LOOKING FOR A LIGHT WEIGHT MACHINE. THIS ONE IS DESCRIBED TO BE 5 LBS, IS THAT ACCURATE?
Yes
It is very light weight. Very portable if need be.
Sort of. I received the machine and thus far I have seen a three year old run around carrying it. If not five pounds it's lighter.
I bought it for my 9 year old daughter and she can carry it
#Sunbeam_SB-1800

QUESTION: DEOS IT INCLUDE THE BOBBINS? WHAT IS THE MODEL OR SIZE OF BOBBINS THAT FITS IT?
hi, yes, it came ready-to-sew with a bobbin in there. i can't remember if it came with extra bobbins, sorry. the machine broke not that long afterwards. it was always running, i had the slide the fabric in while the needle was going up and down, and there was only one speed and it was fast. reverse was nearly imposssible. sorry i can't remember how many bobbins came with it. don't buy this machine. for a hundred bucks you can get something solid.
Yes, it comes with 3. And 3 small spools of thread..black and white are the only colors....its nice and light..
#Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: STUPID QUESTION, BUT HOW DO YOU LOWER THE PRESSER FOOT??
There is a lever to the right on or close to back
The presser foot is kind of hard to see it is on the inside by the needle instead of on the back like normal. It is very short and on My machine it is dark gray or black.
It is a lever located directly behind the needle holder
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Review

QUESTION: HOW MUCH DOES IT WEIGH? WHAT ARE ITS DIMENSIONS (HXWXD)?
Its light like around 2-3 pounds.
I gave this to my granddaughters for a birthday gift, so I don't know exactly but it is lightweight & compact. They like it a lot & take it to their Grammy's when they visit. It's their first time using a sewing machine & is very easy for them to use.
It weighs about a pound or so, 11 inches with handle x 12 x 5. It is not very big and very light. I bought a cheep fabric ice chest with pockets to put it in and it fits perfect with room.
The product info says it is 5 lbs. I haven't weighed it but it seems about right. It could be less.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: I BOUGHT THIS A FEW MONTHS AGO. I NOW CANNOT FIND THE CORD AND WHATEVER IT CAME WITH. WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE A LIST TO TELL ME, WHAT I AM LOOKING
It looks like a phone charger and it goes into the machine
It looks like a black charger that plugs into the outlet and a phone jack type connection to the machine
#Sunbeam_SB-1800

QUESTION: DOES THIS HAVE A FOOT PEDAL
Yes it comes with a foot pedal
Yes it does... but its not a good quality machine.... it came defective.
It has a foot pedal.I recommend a do not buy on this. I got about 3 yards of sewing done and it jumped time. Costs more to send in on warranty than it cost. To buy.I have been sewing for 50 yrs. Local shop could not fix it either:(
It does have a foot pedal, but it is small and light. I had trouble finding it without stopping what I was doing to use the wire to find it. I was happy with the machine at first, but something broke inside and now won't pull the tread from the bobbin up.
#Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: HOW TO THREAT THE NEEDLE - I CAN'T EVEN FIND THE HOLE IN IT???
First make sure you have the correct type of needle. Remember a needle on a sewing machine has a hole at the tip (bottom) not at the head (top). I hope this helps.
Either use a magnifying glass or put in a new needle. Mine threaded fine.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Review

QUESTION: I BOUGHT THIS MACHINE. ALTHOUGH THE TENSION WAS GREAT FOR ABOUT 3 FEET NOW IT IS NOT HOOKING THE BOTTOM THREAD AND WILL NOT WORK. I CHANGED THE NEEDLE
i would check the bobbin thread. Make sure both threads are out before starting. Check that the bobbin thread is not so tight that it is breaking. I hope this helps.
Im sorry pamela H. But this machine is a sale out. The first time I used it for about a foot the tension got tight n the thread broke. To this day it still does it n ive only had it for over three months or so. Over all, dont have any thing to fix yours... hope u do better than me.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: DOES IT USE STANDARD BOBBINS USED IN BIGGER MODELS?
Yes but if you have the money I would by a better sewing machine its useless
Does not matter. It will be a boat anchor in a week or two. Spending money on this machine is like throwing it away.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800

QUESTION: I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS MACHINE CAN SO QUILTING. CYNTHIA
I've never quilted before but I made both my children's halloween costumes so I would say possibly
Unfortunately, I had high hopes for these inexpensive machines and was totally disappointed. I am reselling it (garage sale) as it barely was able to sew a hem. The insides are all plastic and it makes noise like a freight train. I would never buy one again unless it was the expensive actual miniature sewing machine. These are junk.
#Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: DOES THIS MACHINE COME WITH A FOOT PEDAL?
It does come with a foot pedal, but not a very big one. It's more like the ones on toy sewing machines. One of the few things I don't like about it.
Yes, it has a foot pedal on a nice long cord.
yes
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Review

QUESTION: I AM HANDICAP AND LOOKING FOR A LIGHTWEIGHT MACHINE TO MAKE A QUILT FOR THE FIRST TIME;SEWING THE SQUARES. WILL THIS MACHINE DO THE JOB? THANK YOU.
Yes, this machine is perfect. It is very light and the handle on top makes it easy to carry. It sews as good as the pricier machines. I love it
Excellent Question! Yes, This machine will most definitely do the job for you!!
It is a great little machine, however I would recommend it for smaller jobs.
Thank you.
I think it's perfect for that!
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: HOW MANY SPEEDS
I don't know how many speeds. Was given to my 9 year old granddaughter who just gave 7 neck warmers she made to all the mothers at our mothers day picnic made by her sewing machine so I assume its fairly easy to use
2 speeds.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800

QUESTION: DOES THE MACHINE MAKE BUTTON HOLES?
You can make a buttonhole with it but it does not have a buttonhole feature on the machine. This is a very basic machine but does sew well.
Thank you for your inquiry! This Machine can make buttons, but does not have the regular features for it. The Sunbeam SB-1800 is a good classic sewing Machine for all your basic needs.
The machine has only 1 foot, so the buttonhole option needs to be done in a 3 to 4 step process as far as I can tell from the manual.
#Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: DOES THIS SUNBEAM SB1800 COME WITH A MANUEL>
Yes, it's pretty basic. I found it helpful.
YES IT DOES.
Yes, a manual is included.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Review

QUESTION: WILL IT WORK FOR HEMMING SKIRTS/LIGHT WEIGHT PANTS?
Thanks for your question. Yes It is a great machine that will work on any light or even heavy duty work. Perfect for all your every day mending, and for any sewing projects.
It is fine for hemming skirts, and lightweight fabrics. Bear in mind, it has no guide, so it is entirely up to the operator to keep your sewing in a straight line.
#Sunbeam_SB-1800_Compact_Sewing_Machine

QUESTION: DOES IT USE A UNIVERSAL NEEDLE?
Yes it will use a unviveral needle.
Yes it uses a universal needle
#Sunbeam_SB-1800

QUESTION: IS THIS PRODUCT RECOMENDED FOR AN 8 YEAR OLD GIRL THAT WANTS TO LEARN SEWING?
I bought as a gift it didn't come with the power cord, it is very slow and weak. I would get something else for her, so she can learn properly.
I hope so, as I bought it for my 9yr old daughter for Christmas
it is a good learning machine. ,But it is not good for heavy duty projects.
