Disappointed

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality

22 out of 23 people found this helpful.

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.

Love my new 2250

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

Cons: Few Features

I bought this machine a couple of days ago and I am having a great time using it! I altered a nylon dress, hemmed it, hemmed the attached slip as well. I cut and shortened a pleated skirt using the blind hem stitch successfully. Mended a couple of garments as well. I found the booklet that advises of which needles to use for different materials very helpful. I used to do some sewing (30 to 35 years ago but didn't have time till now to get back into it) so I am almost learning from scrap.

Awful

Cons: Poor Quality

This machine is really awful, just spent an hour detangling the mess it's making at every attempt, trying to get tension right, nothing is working. I'm a beginner and seems i made a mistake buying this machine.

Pretty good machine

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

Cons: Poor Quality Of Needles

I've been using Singer 2250 Tradition for almost two months now. My overall impression: it is pretty good machine for the beginner. However, I would note quite low quality of needles (90/14) because of their frequent breakdown even when working with appropriate material. Four needles per week - that's too much for me! As for the functions - I only use two or three of them. I believe there's no need for the beginner to spend much money on the functions he/she would hardly use.

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. Awesome

Horrible

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality, Unreliable

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.

Basic

Overall Rating:

Pros: Easy To Use

Cons: Poor Quality, I Wish Bobbin Case Was More Secure.

3 out of 3 people found this helpful.

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.

I do not do a lot of sewing. I needed a machine that I can just get ready, and, sew. This machine does all that I need it to.

I know nothing about sewing but was able to thread the machine and the bobbin directions were easy to follow the cd that was included also helped.

Pretty good for starters

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

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.
