Great everyday machine

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

we purchased this machine on sale. It has been perfect for everyday usage. Portable so it goes camping with us, I can use it where ever, even the kitchen counter. My cabinet machine can't do that. Definitely worth this price.

This is an awesome machine as it has a serger ability built in. I have been sewing for many years and have always owned Singer machines. Easy to run and never any issues with the quality or durability. Highly recommend this machine.

I had my old Singer Sewing machine since 1981 I loved it I sew a lot of projects and it just wore out. So when I needed a new one and wanted a basic one that would do what I needed it for I found this one and it will be the best for me.
