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.

Easy To Use
Poor Quality

I bought three before I found one that worked good. I was pretty happy with it but the fourth time that I used the needle threader it would not work. I have tried it many times since and can't get it to work. It is sad that a person thinks that a product is OK when it doesn't work as well as my old machine. The thread breaks easily on this machine so it would be nice if it worked correctly. I am sure if you bought a better more expensive machine it would work better but that is not in my budget.

Sewing with Duck Cloth

Easy To Use, Machine Was Cheap For Todays Market
Poor Quality

This machine does not sew well on duck cloth or I would imagine denim, it would sew for a few stitches then stop make a loud noise then after a few seconds you could sew again only to have the same thing happen over & over again. I've had Singer sewing machines all of my life for some 45+ years and have never been as disappointed with a machine

Great Features, Reasonable Weight
Complicated, Continually Jams

Cord to electric supply too short. Since I bought this machine, I have had nothing but problems. It continually goes into a "C 4" error and jams. I have cleaned it, oiled it, the works. The settings are those recommended for straight sewing. My mother swore by Singer.... I personally miss my old Brother machine! After 20+ years, it finally died so I bought this one to replace it. I am so unhappy!!!!!!
