I love how easy this machine is to use. The only feature I have problems with is the automatic threader. More practice I guess.

Sewing again after 25 years!

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

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.
