You Do Have To Know How To Adjust Your Tentsions For The Bobbin

this machine is a great little machine does a lot for a cheaper machine. had to adjust the bobbin tension with the different weight thread but you have to do that will all machine. runs at a nice even speed not too fast. good set of built in stitches that you only see on higher price machines.

This is the first sewing machine I have ever brought and I love it. Most of my sewing machine were given to me so I never had to buy one, then the time came. The features on the 6160 are awesome, this machine sew like a dream for me. Easy to set up and use, stich selections is awesome and most of all it was at the right price. I was going back and forth between brands and decided Singer was the best for me. My sister had a chance to sew on it and she loved it so I know it was the right machine.
