The only thing I use a sewing machine for is the occasional repair. I don't even hem my own pants. I had a machine that broke and when I found out I could by a new one for the cost of repair I bought the 2277. I left it in the box for a long time and let it intimidate me. Finally my mother-in-law sat me down with it and I was surprised to see how easy it was to use. I would recommend this machine to anyone.

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.
