Excerpt: I purchased this sewing machine because I was looking for something that was going to be economical and durable. I have always had great luck with Singer products and was hoping this would be the case despite the low reviews I had read prior to purchase. I was not disappointed.
Excerpt: This machine is not equiped to handle Singer brand thread. You must purchase a stronger brand of thread in order for it to sew ANYTHING.I received this as a gift to replace an older machine, and found myself out and about looking for something that would help me get my machine to work.
