Poor Quality, Few Features, Complicated, Machine Jam

The machine jams all the time when I try and backstich and even when I'm doing a simple stitch. It has such a complicated process on how to thread the machine and how to thread the bobbin. The instructions aren't written well at all. I don't recommend this product, you get what you pay for.

I have been using this model for two months and I am very pleased with it. I have not had any major problems at all. This is the sewing machine for dummies. I have not used a sewing machine in 20 years but I remember how much I enjoyed sewing and wanted to come back to it.

I researched different Singer model sewing machines but I just wanted something very basic and simple. If you are into embroidery or want to expand this may not be the machine for you but I am looking to sew items for the home and found this to be effective.

I found the manuals easy to read and follow but before I bought the machine I looked at videos online on how to thread a bobbin and the basics of sewing.

I haven't sewn in a while and this machine has helped me to get back in the groove of sewing, the only problem that I have is that I can't use heavy thread on the machine so that has slowed me down some, but other than that it is a great machine for beginners. I will up grade the machine and pass this one on to my daughter so that she will become a great sewer in time. I am going to make my daughters wedding dress for her wedding and the flower girl dress this will be fun and very interesting

I have only some sewing experience, and this is my first machine. I have had my singer for about a month, and so far so good. Very easy to use, though it took some practice to learn to thread both top and bottom properly. The directions were pretty basic, but there were plenty of videos on YouTube that helped. This machine is solidly constructed and easy to use for basic sewing needs. I have zero complaints about this machine and I have been having a lot of fun becoming a more proficient seamstress. Highly recommended for a beginner!

I have sewn before, but this machine is great. It is some simple and the directions were easy to follow when I went to set it up. The only problem that I had was that the thread sometimes gets jumbled up and stuck so I have to re-thread it. It's really no big deal to me. But its something I thought I would point out. I also like the fact that it is same and very portable. Its definitely not a machine for someone who is doing bigger projects.
