Poor Quality

This machine worked great at first! I only sew occasionally though, so I didn't come upon any problems for quite a while. Recently it started to bunch up all the fabric while I was sewing, and leave odd little loops all throughout the stitching. I would not recommend buying this product!

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

Previous machine lasted 30-35 years which was also a Singer. New purchase working just as well as 'oldie' did. Find singer products to be totally reliable and highly recommend them.

Plug To Outlet Could Be 8 Inches Longer.

I have not sewn in about 40 years and this machine was on sale at Canadian tire. My sister helped me to learn the needle change feature and a few tips I had long since forgotten. My first machine was a singer as well and these machines are outstanding quality. I may very well take some lessons and for now I am exceptionally pleased with all the new features like the button sew foot and button hole maker foot. Singer even gives you a CD to watch and explains many many features. THANK YOU Singer. Very Happy. Anne in London, ON Canada.

No Way To Put It In A Sewing Machine Table

This was a gift from my husband and I love it. The only complaint I have is there is no way to put it in my sewing machine table.

My wife was making a set of curtains and our 53 year old Singer quit working so we bought this new one. It works well and she was able to complete the project quickly. We found the CD very helpful in getting started. It has enough stitch types for almost all tasks and the light was helpful. She doesn't sew much and we found the initial setup a little difficult.
