Disappointments with Singer One tm

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

Cons: Cannot Find The Presser Foot Or Rolling Carrier That I Would Like To Have.

My disappointments are: I cannot find the button sewing presser foot shown in the video that came with the machine and I cannot find a rolling carrier large enough for this machine.

Singer One

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality

5 out of 7 people found this helpful.

I thought I liked the Singer One machine, however after using it for a couple months, I admit I'm dissatisfied with some of the aspects of this machine. I'm adamant about cleaning the bobbin assembly. VERY difficult to get to. No screwdriver was supplied, and the position of the placement of the screws was very difficult to get a screwdriver on. This process does not encourage the user to routinely clean it because of the difficult access, and this leads to poor stitching, and breakdowns. Trying to get on the screws meant cut fingers for me. While I had it apart, I can see the bobbin housing rubs on the bedplate of the machine, This will cause ware and was already visible. Gears are plastic, and I question the long term durability. After reading some of the other reviews, I realize, I too am having the same issue with the foot pedal. Does not respond every time pressure is applied, and does continue sewing after released on occasion.

I love my new Singer! I have finally got a new machine after years of struggling with an old one. I even had another brand "explode," (literally) on me. This machine is a dream to use. It threads easily, runs well. I'm in love!

With time running out to sew my daughter's Great Gatsby prom dress and my old (other brand) machine suddenly biting the dust. I hastily looked through reviews, asked friends on facebook and did some quick comparisons. The One really is an awesome, easy to use and very affordable machine. My hats off to Singer for putting together a great product manual and DVD that really answered all my needs. The dress was a huge success and I look forward to many more projects. Thanks Singer, I even love that I got such cool styling with a mid priced machine too.

Singer 1

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, # Of Types Of Stitches

Cons: Complicated, Bobbin Winder, Amount Of Thread Bobbin Holds, Location Of On/off Switch

6 out of 6 people found this helpful.

I bought my new sewing machine in January,2014. I had always had Singers,as had my Mom and Grandmother. I'd had my last Singer for 27 years and it was time for a new one.
I looked at descriptions of Singers and other brands and decided to stick with Singer.
I was not pleased with my new machine, but decided I just needed to get used to it. Unfortunately, I let the 90 day trial time go by or I would have returned it. The most frustrating feature is the bobbin filler. I have only successfully filled 1 bobbin out of about 20 times. I now know that I have to put my finger on the thread,so that it doesn't mess up. If I don't, the thread does not wind smoothly, winds on the spindle and is basically a mess. I have read the directions several times and tried tightening the screw that the thread goes around-nothing seems to help except holding my finger on the thread which seems ridiculous. These bobbins don't seem to hold as much thread as the ones for my old machine, so I have to go through this process more often.
I wish I was able to stop sewing with the needle in the down position-this helps with turning-especially when making doll clothes, but am not able to do that.
The on/off button is in a very inconvenient spot-why isn't it on the front of the machine?
I do love the self threading feature and the variety of types of stitches.

I recently purchased this machine after using the an old Singer for 40 years. I was ready to use it as a boat anchor. This ONE is just wonderful to use. So easy, quiet and threading the needle is awesome. I now have projects lined up.

This machine is wonderful!
It has the large work space...love it.
Threading the bobbin and thread is a breeze.
And it has alarms...letting you know that your thread tension is too tight or caught on the feed dogs...and if the pressed foot hasn't been place in the down position. Worked right out of the box...haven't even touch all the other stitches yet but look forward to it...try this machine...I would buy it again.

This is the first new machine I've had in years and I can not say enough goos things about this machine. The only thing you need to be aware of is the bobin has to be the right one or it will skip stiches and I learned that the hard way. The is an awesome machine.

First off I have the Singer 160 which is the same as Singer One but mine is a different color. This is an easy sewing machine to use. Touch of a button and you are switching stiches just like that. I have been sewing for years and I also have a Singer 9940. I bought the latest machine for my daughter in laws to use and as a back up machine. I have made close to thirty bibs with terry cloth as gifts, a fleece poncho, eight double sided fleece blankets, a half dozen reciving blamkets, kitchen curtains, a quilted bag, and quilted two baby blankets on this machine. When sewing thick material I am using an even feed foot and I lengthen the stich length and widen the decorative stiches. I love using the decorative stitches to accent my projects. If you haven't sewn then try to get a friend to help you or go to a class this will help you to become a more confident sewer.

i have not sewn in years abd this machine was so easy to use I couldn't believe it!! It does a great job and I love it. Has just enough on it and I have only one thing that was hard to get used to and it is that the lever for the pressure foot is on the right and I am a lefty and used to the lever being in the back of the pressure foot.

I'm a beginner sewer and I've only had experience with a couple of older Brother machines. I purchased this machine last nite and I love or already! I was originally doing to go with a Curvy, but this one was on sale at Joann's and cheaper than the curvy so I got it. It was a little confusing at first to get the bobbin filled but that was just my lack of knowledge in reading the directions. Love the automatic threader. I haven't watched the DVD yet. I sewed a quilt top last nite and I love how it just starts sewing so smoothly and instantly. (The Brother would hesitate and whine before it would start to sew). Love the drop in bobber and auto tension. Sewed perfectly the first time. Once I sew more I can come back and update.

Received as a gift to replace my 25 yr old Kenmore. Presets for stitches work well. Its quiet. I love the automatic threader, since my 50 yr old eyes need help with that. Nice variety of stitches. Have used it for a couple of projects. Had a little difficulty with jamming the bobbin while working on knit with the scallop stitch on the corners, but overall did a great job. Haven't used it a whole lot, but its been fine.

Just got my machine out to use for the first time. The foot pedal does not work. I have been on hold with the Singer Customer Service phone line for 30 minutes and there are still 8 callers ahead of me. I see someone else wrote a review with the same foot pedal problem I have.....Not happy with Singer level of customer service at this point. Will review again when I find out what they are going to do about the problem.

I have just started sewing and learning to quilt. The One is a great machine for me as a beginner since there are so many helpful gadgets incorporated into the machine to make it easy to get good results. I can concentrate on making accurate seams rather than why the machine isn't doing what I want it to.
A very nice machine.
Wish I had it years ago.

We didn't sew a single stitch before the jack to receive the plug of the foot control broke off. Had to replace the plastic jack with a metal one. Singer should have manufactured it with a metal jack.

I received my Singer machine as a gift and love it! It is easy to use, straight forward and has more features than many other beginner machines. I'm new to sewing, but feel confident when I use the machine and when I have a question, the answer is easily solved by looking in the user’s manual or on the website. The support provided with the purchase of the machine has been excellent. I love how easy the machine is to thread...for a beginner that is a major plus!

I love my machine!!! It has been the best machine I have ever used. I've done several thing with it including 2 quilts and working on my 3rd.

The only down fall of the machine is the foot pedal. Some times it doesn't want to work and I have to turn it on and off and then it will work.

Just got mine yesterday from HSN special. It is not only beautiful but sews like a charm. I was a bit disappointed with the loud motor but I'm sure I'll get use to it and it doesn't bother me, because it sews so beautifully and has such super great features. I'm starting to day to do a couple of projects that I've wanted to do for a while now.

I like this sewing machine, but have lots of problems with the bobbins and bobbin tension. I even had to order a new bobbin casing. It is under warranty IF I take it an hour and a half away or pay to ship it there. Would be better if they had closer "certified" repair places.

I've been sewing as a hobby for several years using some older machines including my favorite, a 1936 Singer model 15,and after weeks of researching new machines, I decided to purchase the new model ONE. While I have really enjoyed the old machines, this new one is just incredible. I have made two shirts, a coat, 3 quilted pillows, 3 stuffed animals and mended over a dozen clothing items and I have only had the machine for 10 days now. It is truly the most simple machine to use, the ease of threading, stitch selection and adjustment, and the awsome buttonhole features, the design and size of the sewing surface, I absolutely love using this machine and would recommend it to anyone!

Overall Rating:

Cons: Poor Quality, Expensive

23 out of 31 people found this helpful.

Purchased a singer one that was on sale at joann frabic for my granddaughter. The machine would not operate, when the foot petal was pushed it would start and then stop. The machine could not be turned counter clockwise manually. Returned the machine to Joann Frabic and they replaced it with another Singer One. This one operated fine but when the foot petal was released it continued to run. Returned this one to Joann Frabic and they issued a store credit. Poor quality control on this new product. I would give this one a zero rating.
