Finally Enjoying This Machine

Kathi Phillips, Singer
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Although I purchased this in 2008, I didn't start using it until 2013. I don't know why I waited, as it truly is an easy machine to use. Although there are a lot of stitches and functions, there aren't too many to make me overwhelmed. I've been taking weekly sewing classes since summer 2013 and I'm even working on my first quilt, a TShirt quilt that is 82 x 90 and this machine handles it all.
  • Pros: Good Value, Easy To Use, High Quality, Versatile

Great Machine

Marjorie Burr, Singer
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I've been enjoying my machine since I've gotten it (not long ago). I like the many computerized. stitches it has and that I'm able to change to a different stitch right in the middle of a project, if I want, with no hesitation. It's a really great machine.

Robust and straightforward

Andrew Wright, Singer
14 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a high-quality machine, that is easy to use. While there are a large number of complex features, the machine is well-designed to allow access to the basic features straightaway, and keeps the complexity only for those occasions when you want to use it. This is a straight-forward enough machine that a beginner will have no trouble getting started, but robust and full of enough features that at least a mid-level person as myself has all the features needed.

Great machine!

Diane R, Singer
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Love the Confidence sewing/quilting electronic machine. It easily goes from thick to thin material with no problems. The decorative stitches are very consistent and even. The tension is the best I've found on any Singer that I've had. It changes easily with the buttons from one pattern to another. I would highly recommend this machine even to an expert sewer as it does everything you want. It works great for quilting also.
  • Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, If You Get Stuck And Can't Figure Out How To Get Back To Straight Stitching You Just Turn It Off And On And You're Set To Go. , It Has A Surge Protector Feature On It But Highly Rcommended To Unplug Machine From Wall When Not Using It And Plug Into A Surge Protector
  • Cons: It's Hard When You First Get It To Learn About All The Stitches So You Have To Read The Book And Just Really Try Them All Out And Practice Changing The Various Stitches, But Once You Learn It, It Is Very Easy.

Confidence?

Stephen Reser, Singer
5 June 2013
  • Summary: A good medium quality machine; unfortunately the plastic gears throw the timing off with little provocation...and don't even think about sewing heavy fabrics.

Disappointed

Buck71cat, Costco
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I'm an experienced sewer, worked on industrial machines & owned several home sewing machines. I'm really disappointed with this machine. To start with the lighting is poor, and the reverse button is awkwardly placed. The first time I sewed it kept globbing up with thread on the back side of the fabric when you try to lock the stitch. Several times when I used the reverse function, the machine just humms & stops completely.
  • Pros: solid looking
  • Cons: lighting is poor machine frequently stops working

Love this machine!

Denise Montminy, Singer
28 June 2012
  • Summary: My husband gave my the 7470 Confidence 2 years ago for Christmas. I can't tell you how many curtains, bedspreads, table linens, and decorative pillows I have made since then. Confidence is the perfect name for the machine. My creativity level is at an all time high! Good going Singer.
