Good Value, Easy To Use

In order to stop the bobbin from jamming. You must make sure it is threaded at the top correctly and it's very, very crucial the the bobbin is nice and tight with no loose threading!!! I can not stress to you how important that is I "Youtube" a video and the lady is a fashion designer and she mentions the tighten of the thread on the bobbin helps.

Hope this helps!!

Good Luck

Easy to use. Bought one for myself and one for my 12 year old grandaughter. She learned to use it quickly. She never used a machine before.Great Value! Have always loved Singer products so it was a no brainer when I needed a new machine to buy a Singer.

Due to the enormous cost of dressing my four year old grand daughter for her dance and drama shows, I decided to start sewing, again, something I haven't done since her mother was a toddler.

The 2259 tradition seemed to have everything I wanted, as It will be very basic stitching, (I hope!!)

My only 'problem' was the thread kept on breaking when I started to sew, something to do with the way it was threaded, but despite numerous retries, the problem could not be solved. That was until I spoke to a lovely lady called Sue, who is part of the support team at Singer.

With in seconds she had talked me through the threading process and as of yet I have not had the problem again. Thank you Sue.
