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

I replaced a 40 year old machine with this one. It is just right for simple sewing needs, and is easy to operate. The instructions for the self-threader were hard to understand, and I had to use the enclosed DVD to see what was happening. I recommend this for those who do not need or want a lot of fancy stitches.

Misleading Stiches

Useless Stitches

How can Singer of all companies make a machine with a backwards overlock stitch! It's misleading because the stitches are on a wheel, so they look correct until you turn the wheel; then you think maybe its a misprint, but no. The stretch stitch next to it is also backwards. Luckily I don't count these stitches as essential since I bought this machine to teach my 8yr daughter how to sew. The one step buttonhole totally makes up for these other two faux pas. Other than that, the machine was easy to set-up and easy to use. The lower bobbin tension did need to be adjusted, but the instructions were clear and easy to understand.
