I love this machine

Overall Rating:

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

I am a relatively new sewer, but love both of these machines. I have borrowed other machines in the past and found them difficult and frustrating, but this set is different.

The serger is so easy, fast, and fun. My most recent project with it has been changing all my son's onesies into t-shirts with a quick sew. Making pillows is amazingly fast with this machine. Friends keep asking to borrow it, but I'm hestitant to loan it out since I love it so much.

The sewing machine is great. I am nearing the end of my son's halloween costume and have been using the machine daily. Even though I'm a beginning, I have had little trouble using the machine and adjusting settings.

The extra's this set comes with are great. My mom about died when she saw how easy it was to make ruffles with the ruffler foot.

Not a happy camper

Cons: Poor Quality, Complicated

I received this combo as a gift. The sewing machine worked like a charm for three sessions then the material got tangled in the bobbin. I was able to disengage the mess but now the machine will not sew. The bobbin does not feed the thread to the needle for pick up. I did all the suggested remedies but still no luck. I want to send it packing. I have not used the serger as I am afraid if the thread breaks I will be sunk again.

Pros: Good Value In That You Get The Serger Included

Cons: Poor Quality, Cannot Adjust Foot Pressure, Awkward To Change To Even Feed Foot

1 out of 1 people found this helpful.

The combo set was a great value but I'm finding that the presser foot assembly is very awkward to change. Changing just the foot is fine, but to change to the even feed foot requires you to use your left hand to unscrew (with a screwdriver) the assembly. Also, you cannot adjust the pressure of the presser foot which makes it very difficult when sewing curves and different weight materials. Final complaint is the biggest. It stops every few inches and beeps. Seems to be a feed dog adjustment issue-but shouldn't have this problem on a fairly new machine! I have to tug the fabric towards me in order to make the machine stitch-this makes it difficult to guide the fabric accurately. I'm very frustrated with this machine!

Great Set! Good value!

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: Timing Can Be Off Needing Professional Repair

I was absolutely thrilled to receive this set for a gift from my mother! I love the serger! Works fantastically, when my cat isn't eating the threads when I'm not looking...
As for the Stylist II, overall I still give it a 5, despite a few drawbacks. I had never had a machine that would do embroidery. Now that I've gotten a taste of this one, I'd like something programmable. The only complaint and issue I've had in the 10 months I've had this set is that the timing is now off on the machine. The needle goes down to catch the bobbin thread but instead hits the mechanism turning the bobbin. So currently it's in the repair shop-but it's under warranty so no charge for fixing and I can't wait to get this great machine back.

Overall, I would recommend this set to someone. It's very simple and easy to use with plenty of bonus features and accessories. Although if you had a few hundred more to spend (or didn't need a serger in a set) get a programmable embroidery machine if that's something you're into. I can't wait to get one in a few years when our budget allows it. I love my Singers!

I LOVE THIS MACHINE!!!

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

I bought the sewing machine not the serger last week and I got this past Tuesday and I have been on it since I got it. I am a novice sewer and this is my first sewing machine and I heard that Singer was the best and that is the truth. I will be a long time fan for the rest of my life. I can't wait to try other Singer Products.
