Summary: My mom used to have a Singer one at that time and she never complaint about it. Reliable and strong at the same time.
So that's why I decided to buy this model for my small sewing project and it's awesome for basic stuff.
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality
Summary: I only use for adjustments and to hem. However I accidentally took metal bobbin case out, and it took 30 minutes to a line and put casing back in for the bobbin. In the beginning it sews fine, but then the threads get tangled for no reason I can think of.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Poor Quality, I Wish Bobbin Case Was More Secure.
Summary: This is an inexpensive machine, however you expect it to at least sew consistently. It will sew just fine for a while then the tension will be all screwed up...and I don't even touch anything that would affect the tension. Do not buy! I didnt expect to get a fabulous machine for the money, but I did expect to get a machine that works.
Summary: Day one, set it up and ran some stitches to see how it worked. Day two, bobbin kept jamming no matter what I did. Broke two needles and spent over an hour trying to get it to work correctly. I wish I looked up the reviews before I bought it. Seems lots of people are having the same problem. So disappointed in Singer for not recalling this machine.
Summary: I needed to fix my older machine - not a free-arm - and happened to see this machine on sale at my Canadian Tire for the same price as a sewing machine repair! THIS ONE IS A FREE-ARM! Guess what; I am interested in sewing again and am trying a simple quilt.
