Summary: This is a good little machine. I call it little because it don't have a lot of fancy stitches. As an embroider I didn't need all of that. I wanted a machine that would sew basic, and a few other stitches. My main requirement was that it would sew heavy material or through several layers of heavy material and so far this machine is a trooper. haven't found anything I don't like about it. I think for the money and what it is you can't beat it.
Summary: First machine broke in 5 minuts of use,sen it back and have replacement so far workin great .I like the machine Singer 1408 its light and easy to work.I will give only 4 stars ,whay? i have to send first on back.
Summary: If you want a easy to use sewing machine this is the one for you. It has several stitch features including button holes and even a special plate to sew open face buttons on. Great warranty. The machine is quiet and glides over the fabric easily. I would recommend this brand and this model.
Entertain yourself for years for the price of one ticket for show!

Summary: I used a similar machine a years ago. Now happy to got this one. For everyday use you don't need nothing but this one. Most i love about this machine very easy to use double needle-to hem jersey sleeves and sweatpants,et cetera. Singer 1408 really good for jeans too. I feel very happy.
Summary: I bought this machine to be able to hem my own pants. I have a short inseam and never can find pants that do not need altering. I'm sure this machine can do other sewing tasks very well. For the small amount of $ this works well for me.
