Summary: Had a Singer for many years til it broke. My daughter gave me a Singer Tradition for Christmas. What a surprise. Used it to hem my granddaughters Prom gown. What a marvelous machine so easy, smooth and has just enough different stitches for an old lady to use. It was so nice to use.
Summary: I grew up sewing with my grandma and her Singer sewing machine. After purchasing this new one for myself, I may just give up sewing all together. What a complete waste of money! The bobbin is the worst thing in the world to get to work. I will not be wasting my money on anything Singer again!
Summary: This sewing machine is awesome! Its great for someone who wants to give sewing a try. It comes with a DVD, that walks you through the threading of the machine and there are little arrows and numbers on the machine that tell you which direction the thread goes. I'm having a blast using this machine.
Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, For Beginners And Teenagers
Summary: I got this for Christmas 2014 because I wanted to learn to sew. The book that came with it didn't help much in getting started, but after many YouTube videos, I finally got the bobbin threaded right and was off and running.
I hemmed 4 pairs of kid's jeans and made myself a shirt.
This is an excellent machine for beginners and experienced sewists alike.

Summary: I have been sewing for almost fourteen years by hand, but this was my first sewing machine. I love it! It's very easy to use. I have not had any problems with mechanical failure or jams. It comes with extra needles, which is essential for people like me who are new to sewing machines.
Summary: Enjoy this machine except threading the needle. For years have threaded needle from right to left & this one is from front to back which I find difficult. Also have trouble passing thread behind a thin wire needle clamp guide (#7) before reaching the needle eye.
Summary: I am very disappointed in this machine. It is very temperamental and difficult for a beginner to work with. If I could have returned it I would have but I threw the box away. I would not recommend it for the new-to-sewing consumer as it is hard to create your own bobbin, hard to load the bobbin w/o...
Excerpt: My husband bought me this sewing machine as a birthday present this past year ( yes I asked for it. ) So far I really enjoy using it. I learned how to sew a long time ago and when my daughter was born I wanted to start up again and see if I could make her some cute dresses and things.
