Summary: I have had to call Singer twice because the directions in the manual weren't clear. I also have had to go to websites to look at tutorials and learn. I'm not a beginning sewer. I have yet to finish the first project, because something goes wrong...needle broke, needle wouldn't stay threaded and had trouble filling the bobbin. Directions in the manual could be clearer.
Summary: I especially like to have the DVD's that are included with my sewing machine. It's always easier to learn by watching. And you still have the book that you can use to make it clearer, if you aren't sure.
Summary: We bought this sewing machine for our 20-year-old daughter for Christmas. Her mom does sewing, needle work, and crafts that involve material and sewing, and our daughter's into it, too. We found this particular sewing machine has wonderful capabilities, is waaaaay more advanced that my wife's machine and yet its features (e.g. it threads itself!) make it perfect for our daughter who's just a little bit beyond beginner. And it's a Singer.
Summary: Very nice machine. Easy to use.I especially like the accessories that came with it. It is a very good value for the price. I priced similar machines at retail stores and found the price to be a good value.
Summary: I purchase this sewing machine for my daughter's birthday. When it arrived she loved it. The machine is easy to use and she is a beginner. The overall condition was great, looks new and to top it off it came with a animal print case. I really can say it is an easy to use machine.
Summary: I have never liked sewing on any new sewing machine. I much prefer the old singers or some other metal made machine but, this one works just as well. I turned out a sun dress made from a very light almost shere cotton in no time. The machine did not cause me any trouble once! I feel like I can do just about anything on this machine and it will not break down, damage my fabric, or be messy with the tension as I have found other newer machines to do.
Summary: I love Singer sewing machines...that's what I grew up on ... that's the kind of sewing machine I've always had ... I recently went through a divorce and my sewing machine disappeared so obviously I needed a new one...and I got this one and I can't believe how light it is ... how easy it is to use... and how fast it got here.
