Summary: This machine is for people who actually know how to sew-not the sit and watch their machine do things people.
I tried several types of fabric on it from denim on down to a very slippery thin knit and it sewed perfect stitches at all speeds. It has the same exact features and performance as the $1,000-range standard machines like a generous, but not ridiculous, number of fancy stitches, several button hole styles and a helpful auto threader.
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Not Made In China
Summary: I received this as a gift. My hubby knew I wanted something a little fancier than the basic singer I already have. Boy did he do a great job picking out a machine...I LOVE IT!! So easy to use, familiar Singer features, smooth sewing and quiet. I spent a whole day having fun sewing. Pretty sure it is going to get a lot of use with all those stitch choices.
Summary: I have been sewing all my life but the last 10 years didnt do very much of it. I signed up for a quilting class and for Christmas I got this new sewing machine. I have used it in class and for various other products such as aprons, bllindstiching hems and sewing on buttons and I cant say enough good points about it. It has gotten me back to my roots with sewing and I absolutely enjoy everything I do on it - even including how simple it is to thread and make bobbins.!
Summary: I have only owned this machine for a few months now & what really made me want it was the one traditional stitch that singer has that not many machines had but now I see Brother is carrying that SAME stitch on some of their new machines now, I must say this machine surprised me as I sew just about anything I can & have been sewing for at least 28 years now & the machines I have had & used before were all excellent in working & performance, seems we take good care of our...
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Excellent Lighting Much Brighter Than I Thought!
Summary: I love this machine! It is easy to use and performs well. It is my go-to machine over my hi tech Janome any day. It is a breeze to thread and never disappoints. It's a fabulous machine at a great price and I highly recommend it!
Summary: When I first bought my new machine which was an upgrade from a really old Brother machine, I was a lil' nervous at first but within a few minutes I was back to my usual routine! The video gave me lots of usual tips! I love that it has a Regular bobbin placement, rather than the drop in. My machine was only $129 and I use it just about Every day, from fixing clothing to Making clothing and headbands. It does pretty well with layers of cloth.
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons: Can't Figure Out Auto Threader!!! And It's In The Way!
