Bad Machine for experienced sewing/quilting
Amy Farhood | October 08, 2011

Cons:
Poor Quality, Can't See Bobbin Thread, Needle Breaks Easily, Can't Open It Up To Clean

I have been sewing 25 years and have worked on everything from quilts to dresses to costumes and this machine is by far the worst! It is poorly made out of plastic. You cannot see the bobbin thread without taking the whole front section off and the bobbin out. Everytime you shut the machine off you have to reprogram the stitch you want (if you stopped in the middle of something). It breaks down easily. I had to replace it once after only one project because the needle alignment was off and needles kept breaking. I am on my second one and making a skirt for an important event is taking five times longer because the thread keeps catching and tangling. Come on Singer - I trusted your quality. This machine seems ok to look at but I have had nothing but trouble with two of them! Never again will I buy a Singer sewing machine. By the way I had my last machine for 18 years without any problems. (It was not a Singer.)

Pros:
Easy To Use

I am experienced with sewing. Sewed mostly on a very basic Kenmore. Decided after 20 some years to step up. Hemmed one pair of pants and the sewing job was beautiful. Extremely pleased - started making a softside children's book and could not get to the machine to do a tight zig-zag stitch over the outside edge. Bobbin thread continued to knot up. Took bobbin out - cleaned the thread out - could not get the bobbin thread to work again. Just took the machine back.

Wasn't Happy

Cons:
Poor Quality

I bought this machine as a starter for my granddaughter. From the very first time we started using the machine, the thread was constantly breaking. There were intermittent clunking noises...sometimes it sounded almost normal and sometimes it sounded like it was going to fall apart. Returned the machine and bought another brand for a bit higher price, but it works MUCH better.

'Sew' Wonderful!

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

The Singer 6199 Brilliance sewing machine is really 'Sew' Wonderful! It's a little complicated at first due to so many different, cool stitches. But once you figure what stitch is best for your project, the rest of it is easy. I would seriously recommend this machine to ANYONE & EVERYONE no matter what their level of sewing experience.

What a bommer

Pros:
Looks Ok
Cons:
Poor Quality

Received this sewing machine as gift for my second residence, which means I had to wait several months before I could try it.

Now totally excited to start using it......it appears that the pressure foot doesn't touch the dog feeds. I can only use this machine if I fold my fabric 4 times, and then it is perfect ?!?!? Customer Service tells me to send it back to Service Center (out of state) to have the warranty work. Postage with insurance would cost more than a new machine...which leaves me very disappointed.
