DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Shellie Johnson, Singer
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Been sewing for almost 40 years - Have sewn on the cheapest to the most expensive of machines. This is by far the worst machine I have ever used. Had to take it in for service after its second use! The top thread guide cuts the thread about every 12" and you have to rethread. The machine doesn't wind the bobbin tight enough and multiple pieces of thread are picked up from the bobbin causing a huge tangled mess under the presser foot. The stitch options don't work.
  • Cons: Poor Quality, Simple To Use, It Just That Nothing Works Properly!

Pretty good machine

Marianne Footlik, Singer
18 June 2014
  • Summary: The only reason I'm rating 4 stars is because the original Curvy 8763 I purchased did not stitch properly. I went for a sewing class and I couldn't stitch anything properly, so the teacher tried it and said I need a new one. Mind you it was only a few weeks old and barely used. So I got a brand new one and I've been stitching away! Everything works great, good instructions and good starter kit.
  • Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

Singer Curvy

Marsha Hearn, Singer
25 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought my Singer Curvy after sewing with my grandmother's 1918 White treadle machine for many years. I am very satisfied with its performance. It has opened up many possibilities for me that I did not have with my treadle. I am still learning how to use many of the Curvy's features. It is very easy to thread and use the bobbin and easy to operate. I am particularly pleased with the automatic threading feature. It was also an excellent value.
  • Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Difficulty In Sewing Some Thicknesses Of Fabric.

No more swearing!

Karen Craig, Singer
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Wow, my life is so much better!! Previously I used an old K-more which was reliable but limited. Switching to this machine just a few months ago, I feel like after the adjustment period I'm flying. Wonderful, thrilled, and hope it stays as easy to use. So far NO problems! Love it!!! But what I love the most is that I have user friendliness...easy to thread needle, bobbin...easy to switch stitches...just everything.

Crazy for my Singer Curvy

Sadonia Weatherspoon, Singer
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Since buying my Singer Curvy 8763 I am sewing all the time. I am like a second time around beginner. I took sewing in school not good, I didn't do well, but still had the dream of picking it up again one day. That day arrived and value for price and opportunity made the timing right and I test drove the Singer Curvy 8763. I fell in love with it, it is easy to use.

poor quality

Stephanie Schmidt, Singer
28 March 2014
  • Summary: The features are impressive. The durability is disappointing. I had it for three years now and it's broken for the second time. The needle hits the casing and breaks. The first fix cost half the price of the machine , a cam, I think, was out of whack. Now its doing the same thing again. Also the foot pedal is off and on working which is really exasperating. I used only for clothes, denim was the heaviest material. VERY disappointed.
  • Pros: Great Features
  • Cons: Poor Quality

Annoying Beep and Stop

Dana Trumble, Singer
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I thought I would love the machine - but after a week - there is an annoying beeping and then the sewing slows to a stop. My foot is getting a workout because I have to constantly start the sewing again and again. There is nothing in the manual and a few tips online. I have adjusted the tension and cleaned the machine. Nothing works to get rid of the beep. I may return the machine and look for another brand.
  • Cons: Beeping And Slows To A Stop.
