I have this machine, purchased in 2006, and I love it. I understand it is made by Jamome, has features that can be found on Jamome brand machines for hundreds of dollars more. I use it to make quilts, banners, repair clothing, even stitch the binding on a 12 page "book".
However, the listing is incorrect--it has only 67 built in stitches, not 167. And IMO, it is electronic, rather than comptuerized. While it has a screen and you can choose and adjust stitches electronicly, it does not have a USB port and you cannot download patterns. It has no capablility of doing complex embroidery images, which is my definition of a "computerized" sewing machine.
It has memory capability and you can build a sequence of stitches, including text, and sew that sequence repeatedly. I have used it to print 7mm high text (scripture, labels in upper and lower case.)
That said, I have nothing but good things to say about this machine. I am considering buying another of the same model, because it fits my needs perfectly. Sears no longer makes it, so I will have to buy it here or from some other non-Sears source.
This is am excellent machine it has 215 stitch functions, an auto needle threader and the ability to combine stitches to create many combinations. It has an instructional video and an easy to use manual. It also comes with an assortment of feet: Straight Stitch foot, Automatic Buttonhole foot, Zipper Foot, Blind Hem Stitch Foot, Satin Stitch Foot, Overedge Foot, Overcast Foot, Darning Foot and a Quilter Bar. It has 15 needle positions and room for an additional spool. It also sews very well through layers of fabric. It also sews beautiful buttonholes.
It has a built in thread cutter. It also has a two stage pressor foot lifter making it eaiser to get layers of fabric under or out of the machine. You can also drop the feed dogs and do some free motion quilting and embroidery. Overall this is an excellent machine to own.
This is the first computerized machine and I love it so much. It does so much at just the touch of a button, and the feature for lowering the needle and the feed dogs is great for free motion quilting. I highly recommend it. 5 stars.
I have only done a few things with this machine but I am impressed so far. The first thing I sewed was to take some darts in a pair jeans-it sewed through 8 layers of denim without even working the motor. Then I took a mat that the edges had started to fray on and sewed that-again didn't even fizz on it. I think this is an amazing machine. So glad I bought it. I didn't even bother to put a heavy duty needle in it. I was trying to see how good it was. My old Kenmore (32 yrs old) was awesome too but it was just wearing out and didn't do as many fancy stitches as this one. I am hoping to do a little more 'fun' stuff with this. I'd recommend this machine to anyone-beginner or experienced. Very pleased.
After doing a lot of research I decided on this machine and I couldn't be happier with it. I liked all the features is why I decided on it. It sews beautifully! My husband and I enjoy making quilts and this machine is perfect for it. With it's ease of use, the Kenmore 19233 Conputerized Sewing Machine is great for the beginner to the most experienced sewers. I previously owned a Janome MemoryCraft and loved it, but I think I might just love this machine even more. This machine does everything my old machine did, and for the price you just can't beat it.
