Good Value, Easy To Use

I have had my 2277 for only 2 days, but have made 3 blankets with matching pillows for my grandkids and now a long dress for my daughter for her Halloween costume. I had my old machine for about 25 years and it was starting to go. This new Singer has made the past 2 days of sewing a breeze!! I love it!!

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

I love the Tradition sewing machine! I will definitely be starting(& finishing) many more projects with it! So glad it comes with a dvd, since watching it made using the machine very simple especially since I haven't used many machines or been sewing for very long. I've used it for a few projects already, and feel very comfortable & confident using it. It has plenty of great features for an excellent price!

Automatic Needle Threader Has Never Worked

I have only had the machine a short time and have used it for only the basics (seams/hems).

On the whole, it works very nicely and the manual is very helpful. The automatic needle threader has not worked from the first use and one day the motor felt like it was running on run-down batteries. Otherwise, so far the machine has operated smoothly. I wish it had come with a storage case and I haven't figured out how to overcome sewing over thick seams (e.g., when hemming blue jeans).

It Should Include A Hard Cover For Storage

I love this little machine. It is so smooth, no bunching of the bobbin thread and constant tension problems like my old one. The DVD helped get me started. The automatic needle threader is a nice feature. I realize that I was not sewing because my older machine was such a headache with bunching, stalling, thread breaking, etc. This one is fun and I've already completed one project and onto the next.

Poor Quality

I have had this machine since November of 2011and only used to make two children's blanket and that is it. The Machine only stitches backwards and will not sew anything heavy weight. I tried to hem some 10 year old jeans which I know were worn but the machine would not work then I tried to sew velcro to a patch and that was a joke. Very disappointed with my machine I hate to even try and take it back because I have no doubt that I will probably have trouble in returning it to the store.
