► Usha Janome Allure Sewing Machine
Unlike any other brand, Usha has tried the best to make this electric sewing machine as compact & portable as possible. It weighs in at 8KG, which is not much considering this device also packs an inbuilt electric motor. The manufacturer has also provided a pivoting handle at the top that helps a lot while moving the machine from one place to another.
This Usha sewing machine firmly grasps the surface through its rubberized feet for a stable operation because of which stitching accuracy gets increased. Button for the reverse stitching is at the bottom for easy accessibility. The white finish of the outer shell is appealing and gives this device a much premium look, withal.
Free Arm and Sewing Light: The Usha Allure sewing machine comes with tons of features. It comes with a free arm feature use for stitching sleeves and cuffs. The tension control wheel is in the vertical position so that the users can rotate it easily.
Further, this sewing machine also features a sewing light, which is controlled using a switch. Use the main control dial for selecting the stitch pattern while the other control dial is for selecting the size of each stitch. Moreover, this device comes equipped with a bobbin winder, which is not a unique feature since all the latest sewing machines available in the market offer that.
→ Fewer Stitch Patterns
It is unfortunate that this Usha sewing machine comes only 13 inbuilt stitch patterns. This would restrict customers from ordering it. Nowadays, everyone looks for a sewing machine with more than 20 stitch patterns these days. However, the good thing is that this machine is suitable for nine different applications that include button-fixing, zip fixing as well as pico.
The labels on the front make it easy for a new user to remember the different code numbers for each stitch pattern. Its foot pedal is not hard to press and not too loose to cause any accident either. You also get a detailed instruction manual in the box. Experienced users wouldn’t need to read it as the controls on this Usha sewing machine are at the known points.
Consumes Less Power: The machine consumes just 75 watts of power, which is less than what a full-size tube light consumes. Therefore, if you are concerned about the power bill, throw all the worries to a dustbin since this machine would not cause a significant hike in the monthly electricity bill. Another significant fact is that the sewing machine comes with 2- years of warranty from the manufacturer’s side.

→ Should you buy this Usha sewing machine?
The Allure electric sewing machine from the house of Usha has really impressed me. I appreciate the compactness and portability infused in its build. Extra features such as sewing light and free arm make sewing fun instead of a headache.
The limitation of only 13 patterns, however, is making this Usha sewing machine an undesirable choice for fashion designers. For a regular tailor shop, it is a perfect sewing machine under 11000 Rupees.

To make it easier for the user to use this brother sewing appliance, the manufacturer inscribed a gauge above the control knob. You can use this gauge to configure the stitch settings.
More colorful: Another difference between the Brother GS3710 and the GS3700 is the color selection. The manufacturer released the older version (GS3700), only in white. However, its successor (the GS3710) comes with a wide range of colors to choose from.
