Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Dvd Instructions Included, Quick Start Guide Included, Mechanical Needle Threader Is Awesome, Mechanical Hand Wheel Picks Up Bobbin Thread Or, Touch&release Reverse Switch Pick Up Bobbin Thread

This was a Xmas gift so I used the quick start guide and read the "STOP before returning your Singer sewing machine" warning page before I started to sew. This is a quiet lightweight machine that performs as a flexible heavyweight. no problems with birdsnesting in bobbin area - just use a metal class 15 bobbin, also you need to raise the presser foot when threading the machine - then you lower the presser foot just before you get to the needle.

I was excited to purchase this machine, but had problems with it from the start. The bobbin does not really snap in place, so you have to cross your fingers that it got inserted properly. When sewing layers of fabric, such as corduroy, the needle jams and thread breaks and it's loud! It also seems to auto-correct or something when using different stitches and that is as annoying as auto-correct anywhere else. I do love Singer, but hate this machine.

Poor Quality

I recieved this machine for Christmas and was very excited. I followed all the directions exactly for set up and used all the correct stuff, but it kept unthreading amd birdsnesting in the bobbin area. My grandmother recieved the same machine for christmas and had the same problem. I haven't been able to do one project

This is my first sewing machine and I have to say that I love this machine! The features are great, I was dreading making button holes & sewing on buttons but with this machine it was a breeze. If you're just starting out like me this is definitely a great machine to have.

Buttonholer Could Be A Little Easier To Use

Very good machine for the money. Sews better & better made than a machine I paid 2-1/2 times the money for. Buttonholer a little tricky to use, hard to see what you're doing but went okay after the first couuple. Tried hemming jeans first thing and went through all thicknesses without problem, just have to use the correct needle and go slowly at the seams. Very pleased with this machine.
