Great Machine!

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: Needle Threader Doesn't Always Work.

This machine is perfect for beginners and those who have taken some time off and are ready to sew on a reliable, easy to use machine. I have sewn plenty, but it had been many years. My 10 yr. old daughter is just starting to learn. We needed a new machine that does all that you need but wasn't too expensive. This machine is perfect for both of us! She was able to set it up and run it in less than 5 minutes. I have since used it on several projects around the house, and it runs like a top. The only thing that I don't care for is the needle threader. I think it's more trouble than it's worth, and sometimes it cuts the thread. However, I would give this machine 5 stars for everything else. Give it a try, you won't regret it, and for the price, it's an unbelievable deal!

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

I am a 67 y.o. male who recently lost weight and had to have pants taken up in the waist and length. I decided to try it myself. The instructions available were clear and concise. My work is not professional, but I am very pleased with my results. I thought sewing would be too difficult for me to comprehend, but Singer 2277 makes it a breeze. It has already paid for itself in seamstress bills. I would highly recommend this to a beginner.

Singer 2277 Tradition

Overall Rating:

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

I primarily sew for mending and some crafts and am very satisfied with my new 2277 Tradition. Thankfully, an instructional DVD was included to help me figure out the self-threading feature. It works great!

Piece of Junk

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality, Complicated

2 out of 2 people found this helpful.

I was given this machine as a gift. I haven't sewn in a number of years, but my previous machine was a singer I had sewn on for over 20 years with no problems. I haven't sewn in many years, so upon receiving the machine as a gift, I was thrilled to brush up on my skills and start some projects--wrong! This machine made bunched up the bobbin thread in knots, and it could not sew over over several layers with trim (making a pillow with cording). The machine kept trying to revert to a zigzag even though it was not set on this stitch. It finally started to make terrible noises, and ended in a huge knot of thread. My project was ruined from all the seam ripping I had to do. The front loading bobbin is difficult to see (as opposed to a drop in). Needle threader didn't always work, easier to do it myself. NOT recommended. Waste of 100 dollars.

Bobbin problems

Overall Rating:

4 out of 5 people found this helpful.

I have trouble filling the bobbin. The thread is not wound on the bobbin in a smoth even shape,. The thread is more "cone" shape and very uneven. I've watched the video numerous times and find that I have to hold the thread with my left hand very carefully and just so in order for the bobbin to look even halfway decent.

Worthless

Overall Rating:

Pros: None

Cons: Few Features

this machine is useless. Without a way to adjust the pressure on the presser foot, uses are very limited. The needle threader is hopeless - easier to thread by eye. Worst $100 I EVER SPENT1

This machine is not worth much. The "self threading" needle is almost impossible to use. With no way to adjust the presser foot pressure, uses are very limited.

Cons: Poor Directions For Needle Threader

All went well except I could not figure out how to use the needle threader. It was the main reason I got this model rather than one $10 less. Maybe if I go back to the store of purchase, someone will be able to show me how to use it.

Piece of garbage

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value

Cons: Poor Quality

8 out of 10 people found this helpful.

I've only had it a short time and am having trouble with the under thread snarling and bunching. Had it serviced where I bought it and it's doing the same thing the first time I try to use it. I've only had it a few months-of course, just past the return guarantee date. Extremely disappointing. Don't waste your money on this one-maybe spend a few more dollars and save yourself repair bills and headache pills.

My Review of Singer Tradition

Overall Rating:

Pros: Great Features, Easy To Use

Cons: Complicated, Bobbin Drop Is Confusing

3 out of 5 people found this helpful.

I have used my Tradition on several occasions and each time had problems with winding the bobbin too loose to use in the machine, no worth the bother to use it, so I bought a separate bobbin winder which works much better

BEST LITTLE MACHINE EVER!

Overall Rating:

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

6 out of 8 people found this helpful.

I purchased this machine mainly because I needed a machine to do some basic repairs. I grew up in a house where mom used a Singer sewing machine -- this product has, by far, exceeded all of my expectations! The price can't be beat and it is a sturdy machine that can handle just about any tasks you need to do. I love this machine and am so happy with it! It has already paid for itself with all of the repairs to clothing I've done! LOVE IT!

Great Beginner Machine

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: No Stitch Guide. Would Be Most Helpful.

4 out of 5 people found this helpful.

I am a beginner and I love this machine. The instruction DVD was very helpful. The automatic threader that some have complained about I had no trouble using. Watch the DVD! I just wish this machine came with a stitch guide. Very confusing for the beginner and the Singer website doesn't have one specific for this machine. All in all great machine.

Doesn't work

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality

15 out of 28 people found this helpful.

I am an amateur and follow the instructions to a T, threading through the bobbin doesn't work, it gets tangled every time, I've never been able to use my machine even once in the few months I've owned it and I'm furious. I'm about to throw this thing against a wall and buy a different one from another brand. I don't appreciate having my time or money wasted. Thanks Singer.

Easy to Use

Overall Rating:

I have owned my machine for a couple months now. Overall I like it, it is a basic machine that it great for just getting started. It is easy to use and the DVD that is included it very helpful. I am having to buy more accessories for my machine than I anticipated which is a downside for me, but overall I haven't had many problems using my machine.

Great Basic Machine

Overall Rating:

Pros: Easy To Use

Cons: Automatice Threader Is A Pain And Doesn't Work Well

10 out of 11 people found this helpful.

Pro's - easy to use, works well for what little sewing I do.
Con's - Auto threader is a pain (I don’t use it) and occasionally the bobbin thread will bunch up and break.
Other than the 2 con’s it’s a great little machine for the price

Fun Machine - Good Value

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Uniformed Stitching

Cons: Automatic Needle Threader???

9 out of 10 people found this helpful.

I haven't sewn in years, but my daughter wanted a t-shirt quilt. The machine works wonderfully sewing the t-shirt, interfacing and the cotton fabric sashing together. The stitches are uniform and don't seem to bunch. Love the ease of reverse stitching. It is very easy to use. Haven't figured out how the automatic needle threader works, but also haven't watched the DVD yet.

bad buy

Cons: 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.

I have had this machine for a month or so now and have used it for making simple curtains and valances. I am very happy with it and the extra stitches are a very nice feature. I have used one, so far and it was very easy. I am not a seamstress, just every day sewer. I would recommend this machine. It seems to be made very well and I have had no problems at all.
Great value.

Cons: 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).

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!!

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!

Cons: 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.
