I purchased this machine after never having owned a sewing machine made after 1940. My only complaint is the excessive vibration/shaking when sewing at high speed, due to the lightweight characteristic. It is great to have a modern tool!

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Instructional Dvd Helpful, Easy To Learn

I wanted to take up sewing and got this machine for Christmas. I absolutely LOVE IT! Here's what I liked:

1) The instructional DVD was extremely helpful. I learned many things from this video, as did my mom who has sewn in the past

2) This machine is easy to use, just plug it in, turn it on and you're ready to sew!

The step by step video on how to thread the machine is great, but if you're eager like me and want to jump right into action, the numbered instructions on the machine itself are easy to follow

3) The threader assistant!! Man, this makes life a lot easier not having to fight putting the thread through the needle hole. Just lower the assistant and viola! You're machine is threaded

I would suggest watching the video for how to use this properly

4) Ease of Use

After threading the machine, it simply is just turn it on and you're ready to go! This is a great machine to learn to sew on, it supports your basic beginner projects as well as more advanced ones like quilting.

5) The Singer Brand

It's good to know the Singer brand is behind this; they have been making sewing machines for years and have really made this machine convenient and easy to use. You'll fall in love with sewing very quickly!

This is my first sewing machine and my first time sewing. I find this machine to be extremely easy to use. It's easy to wind the bobbin, thread the machine and needle. Works well on many different types of fabrics and projects. Has just the right amount of features and stitches for learning how to use a sewing machine, at an affordable price.
