Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Number of functions, low price, accessories.
Cons:Outdated Styling, no drop in bobbin feature.
The Bottom Line: This is the Toyota Camry of sewing machine. Moderately priced work horse.
The FY930 is a highly capable machine. It has 21 stitch functions which cover most types of sewing you will ever do at your house. It also does buttonsewing and buttonholing.

The supplied extras such as needles, oil, bobbins and such are a nice touch.
I have been able to sew multiple layers of cotton, silk and even denim.
One thing to double check is the tension knob. For some reason mine was received with the tension set on number 9. It is easily corrected and it sewed fine out of the box.
The threading instruction is printed right on the machine itself that makes it easier for beginner sewer like myself to thread it quickly and correctly.
Purchased the machine for $199 at a local sewing dealer instead of the higher priced models because to me a sewing machine is a sewing machine. I don't need the brand, just need it to sew what i need it to sew.
I haven't had any problems yet and my 2 complaints with the machine is it could be a little more stylish and drop in bobbin feature. Otherwise it is a fine machine for its price.

This machine has the standard straight, zig zag, flex stitches plus other preset patterns such as half moon, oval and other stitches (embroidery). It does not however drop feed so I am not sure how good it would be for embroidery work.
I have gotten another machine since then, a serger mainly because it was on sale for $299. I am giving it to my daughter for her to try it. I will write something about it shortly.
