Singer Curvy

Laurel Levesque, Singer
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I LOVE this machine! After owning Singer machines all my life, I was hesitant to buy a new "plastic" machine. I was afraid it wouldn't be as sturdy, but I researched it and read review after review before I bought this machine. I was able to follow the directions in the manual to complete all the tasks-threading the machine and using the self-threading feature(my absolute favorite feature!), winding the bobbin, and using the all the stitches.

Handy features, but . . . .

Connie Conner, Singer
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Has some handy features and relatively simple to use. In the second month of ownership during the third use, the needle broke while sewing 3 layers of material together while making a comforter. I replaced the needle with one of the extra needles that were supplied with the machine according to the instructions, but the needle apparently doesn't go far enough up into the shaft that holds the needle in place after several tries by me and my husband.

Huge disappointment.

Jordan Quintana, Singer
8 December 2013
  • Summary: I was so excited when I bought this. It has a good motor, not too noisy, sews relatively smoothly, and had features I liked. HOWEVER, I have several complaints about this machine. 1. The bobbin winder has not worked from day one. 2. When cleaning the needle plate, a metal notch on the back of it snapped off without me applying any more pressure than one would use in simply holding the thing. I've had this machine for 3 months.
  • Pros: Great Features
  • Cons: Poor Quality, Expensive, Parts To Dont Function Properly.

Great for kids and simple use

Robin Bianchi, Singer
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I don't sew much so all I was using was my grandmother's old machine that just goes forwards and has a knee pedal. But my daughters were becoming interested in sewing and my oldest started to take machine sewing classes at JoAnn's Fabrics and my grandmother's sewing machine wasn't so friendly. I did research online and then when there was a sale I went to JoAnn's in Northridge California to buy a machine.
  • Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, Great For Kids
  • Cons: Maybe It Won't Last As Long As Some

worst machine i've ever owned

Amelia Blount, Singer
15 June 2013
  • Summary: I grew up using Singer machines so when the time came for a new machine I saw the Curvy 8763 at Joann's and liked what I saw. Wish I had never bought it; jams all the time, beeps at me constantly. Spend more time removing bad stitching and redoing. I will no longer buy Singer machines; very disappointed.
  • Cons: Poor Quality

Love My New Sewing Machine!!

Leanna Thomas, Singer
28 April 2013
  • Summary: I am 54 years old, been sewing since I was 8 yrs old. I love to sew, but have worked with two wonderful machines. I have a Singer Featherweight and a cabinet model, made in 1952, both Singers. They have served me wonderfully all these years. This winter, I finally broke down and bought a Singer Curvy. I absolutely love it!! It makes mending so much easier. I still intend to use my cabinet model though but wanted you to know how much I love this new machine!!

Happiest Sewing Experience I Have Had!

Virginia Burkman, Singer
21 April 2013
  • Summary: I was sewing within minutes of taking it out of the box. The quick start directions had me up and running with out a hitch unlike my last machine that took forever to get just the bobbin wound and the machine threaded! I plan on doing a lot more sewing now that I don't have to fight the machine anymore. Wonderful!

Love this machine!

Jessica Ivancso, Singer
21 March 2013
  • Summary: After owing a Brother machine for 20+ years, I am very pleased to say that my Singer Curvy is GREAT! It was very easy to use (even without using the included DVD). The drop-in bobbin is a breeze as is the threading. It took a while to use the self-feed for the needle but I finally got it after about three tries. I sew pretty regularly now, creating handbags, accessories, and have moved on to clothes. I have recommended this machine to others.

poor quality

isela salgado, Singer
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Every time I try to sew, it loops, the bobbin pops. The tension no matter how much I try, its off. I had only used it about four times and I stopped functioning, all the light went on. Sent it out to fix, and its doing the same thing. worst machine ever, don't recommend it, SAVE your money. Never again will I buy singer $300 gone to waste!
