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. Would recommend it to all who just need a simple sewing machine.

Worst sewing machine I've ever used

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! Very disappointed in this machine.

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. When I go shopping, if I don't see my size, I purchase the larger size (without hesitation :-) because I know I can bring it home and tailor it, with thanks to my easy to use sewing machine! :-)

I Give Up.

Binds Up

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. Then the machine started binding up. I'd open the bobbin case and thread would be all bound up around the hook and my material pulled down into the feed teeth so I'd have to cut it to free it from the bobbin. Took everything apart, rethreaded. It sewed a few stitches, then did it again. Long story short... I've watched videos, read websites, talked to experienced sewers and can't figure out why it keeps doing this. I'm giving up. I've spent hours and hours rethreading the machine instead of doing actual sewing. We took everything around the bobbin casing apart, cleaned it and re-threaded. Again, same issue.

Really discouraging for a beginner! I've read tons of reviews from others with similar issues with this machine. No help though, their suggestion was get a different machine.

I'll be finishing my current project by hand and probably looking for new machine. We didn't get an extended warranty or anything, so I'm stuck with a giant paperweight.

Needle threading

Easy To Use

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.
