Thread Cutter Does Not Work - Not Covered By Warranty


I have had the Skyline S5 for 8 months now and have used it only a handful of times. Thread cutter works sometimes, but recently it does not work at all. Thread cutter, I was told by the distributor, is not covered under any guarantee or warranty. If I have paid $1700 for a machine, I expect it to work flawlessly, ESPECIALLY within the first year!

Purchased in April 2019 for $1,700.00.

Love it!!


This is a great all rounder machine for the novice who wants to progress easily. The Skyline is quiet, very well lit with multiple LED lights, able to do simple embroidery which looks really professional. The stitch variety is excellent and you actually use a lot of different stitches easily and they are useful. Thread cutter is a fantastic bonus. Can't live without it now! A really good all round machine, for the amateur to look professional!
