Summary: Very straightforward machine to thread, fill bobbin and sew! I haven't explored other stitches, but had no problem with straight stitch. I am not an accomplished seamstress and haven't sewed with a machine in 20 years - but follow the directions and it's easy. Lighting, storage container, and handle are very convenient. Also, lightweight. Good value for the money.
Summary: This was my first sewing machine and it is so easy for the beginner to learn to use and to make wonderful projects with. I made a beautiful set of curtains with it, and friends and family could not believe that I had made them myself. Very pleased with this machine...a Excellant Singer product!!!
Excerpt: I found this to be a good sewing machine, until it came down to sewing top stitches and more than two layers of fabric, it stuck and made holes in my fabric every single time. For basic use I would recommend.
Excerpt: This is an excellent, sturdy, well made basic sewing machine. It is very easy to thread and I was using it within minutes with no problems. The instruction manual included is easy to understand. The accessories included are basic but they are all I need for basic sewing. The one thing I would like on this model is an automatic needle threader, but this is only a minor inconvenience.
