A nice basic machine

Good Value, Easy To Use

After three years of use, I have not experienced any problems! I mostly do basic projects, so I can only speculate that it may struggle with heavier fabrics. So far it has only mildly complained at a stack of fleece.

Good Value
Poor Quality

At first I liked the machine but after its first couple uses it started jamming a bunch. I have changed my needle and it is the bobbin that came with the machine. I had my grandfather look at it because he always fixes my grandmother's machine. Well he couldn't even fix it and he's been able to fix my grandmother's machines for 50 years now. I would not recommend this machine. I am very unhappy with this machine. I liked the other singer machines I have had and used in the past but this one doesn't run like the other machines.
