Pros: Good Value

I like the machine, but the self-threader is not useful, poor design; like should be facing the inside of machine more for better visualization of what you are doing

Singer 9100

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: Difficult For Me To Learn To Use Automatic Needle Threader, Can Not Increase Size Of Alphabet Letters

1 out of 1 people found this helpful.

I absolutely LOVE my new Singer 9100 that my husband bought me!! Although I have yet to use ALL of the stitch patterns & functions, the ones I have experimented & sewn with have worked like a dream. This is a great value for the money. The only negatives I have found so far are (1) the automatic threader takes some practice to learn to use properly and (2) I wish it was possible to increase the size of the alphabet stitches......7mm is where it is set & it is not possible to make the letters larger or do a classic monogram. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the purchase of this machine.

Replacement for 1961 Singer

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features

Cons: Complicated

As an experienced sewer and computer user, I was confident that I would not have a problem using the electronic 9100 model. I was wrong. After working with it off and on for over a week, I concluded that the machine just needed a "breaking in" . Finally I was able to fill and thread the bobbin and thread the upper thread. The automatic needle threader is not as easy as advertised . I have now mastered straight and zigzag stitches. I am confident that I will soon "graduate" to the decorative settings. In summary, my advice to others is if you are a novice, do not buy this machine. Stay with the simpler models. If you have done a lot of sewing, be patient and work through the steps, you too can do it. .

Truly a Happy Customer

I have used this machine for zippers on jeans as well as altering a prom dress. It does it all. Plus it is very quiet. I could not be happier. I am sure this machine will last me a very long time.

new sewing machine

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

I like all the new features of my machine, but, I wish you could elongate some of the fancier stitches. There is a stitch that looks live a wave and I would like to use it on a quilt, but it is not long and wide enough. Great machine and simple to use. Still learning all the great features. Not expensive and affordable.

Do not buy for embroidery

I have a bigger embroidery machine thought I would by a smaller one for smaller projects that is lighter and can be picked up with ease. I have been trying to figure out the embroidery part of this machine for hours! Very complicated has no embroidery hoop! Had to buy one and still can't get it to do any type of embroidery bought it today and bringing it back for refund tomorrow! How can it embroidery when hoop is free and can move about freely!

i may only be a beginner. self taught and learned most stuff off youtube, but this machine is so easy to use, i feel like a professional.
it was a gift from my boyfriend and is the first machine i have owned.
i had no clue what i was doing when i started. this machine is definitely out of my league. it has so many options and functions I'm going to take a long time to learn them all. but i found it so easy to do basics, like hemming, quilting, crafts, buttons, zips, etc. can't wait to be able to learn more with it.

the only confusing part for me at the moment is thread tension.
but i guess experience will fix that one.

i would highly recommend it. love love love

I returned the machine

Cons: Poor Mechanical Counter-balance

I returned the 9100 for a refund. The machine vibrated so much at various speeds it walked across the table. The needle was difficult to thread despite the included "threader." I found the cover for the bobbin area difficult to remove.

From Spandex to Leather, this machine has stood up to any kind of beating I can throw at it. Maybe not a good choice for a beginner, machine has rather advanced functions for what it is. If you like to make your own clothes, or even an avid quilter I would Recommend this machine. I just did the interior of my car in automotive grade napa leather without one skipped stitch.

I am retired and just wanted a machine to do a few repairs. When I got the machine and used it, it was so easy. I started sewing and haven,t stopped. The stitches are great and with the built in cards to see all the stitches, it is just a joy to use. I used to have my own business and I would consider myself a professional. I sue fast and on all materials and this machine has not hesitated. I just love it!

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

Cons: Poor Lighting And Poor Needle Threader A Con

11 out of 13 people found this helpful.

I love using this machine. It's actually very user friendly. I was a little overwhelmed after using my old mechanical machine, but found it very easy. I'm only giving this machine 4 stars, however, because it's NOT easy to thread the needle. I find it easier to use it the "old fashioned way". In fact, I'm afraid that I'll break the threader because I can't get the needle to thread. Also, the light is very small and dim. I expected more lighting and there isn't. I had to add more lighting myself. I think both of these issues could be a very easy fix for Singer.

got my machine today and really am amazed at how easy it is to operate it and how smooth it runs. I also have 2 Janome's machines, and I can honestly say, this machine runs just as good or better. I plan to use it for making quilt tops and also quilt bindings. it is also very sturdy and does not shake and jump when I put the peddle to the meddle. I know I will enjoy this little jewel..

I bought this machine to replace an old Singer 6217c, which was my grandmother's, until I could get it repaired. I was leery about getting a computerized machine but I sure am glad that I did! It has been a joy to work with. I am not a professional seamstress, just a devoted hobbyist. It was ready to go right out of the box. I am highly pleased with my machine!

So far so good

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Excellent Instruction Manual

Cons: Bobbin A Little Tricky To Wind

8 out of 8 people found this helpful.

Haven't used the machine a lot, but so far it's doing well. Had a problem with the bobbin at one point, primarily in that it was winding the threat too loosely on the spool and it seemed to affect how it fed during operation. Got that worked out. My wife shortened a pair of my jeans and had to sew over some thick seams and it did quite well. In an earlier review on Amazon I neglected to note that the instruction book is very well written and easy to follow and find specific items. Great job there. So far so good.

I was so excited to get this machine! I don't need a million bazillion embroidery patterns. Just something to add a little touch of class. I started on bags and the basic stitches are awesome! Love the machine and was so exicted to embroider..... then the problems started. Basic stitches are perfect, then making the sugested changes in the trouble shooting guide, and I still can't get the top layer lay flat! Snags, pulls missed stiches, you name it, it hapened. I've followed suggested fix and nothing has helped. And since this is a new machine, there aren't any videos or reviews on it. Most of the videos are for other machines. I want something specific to this machine. Im going to rethread the machine and use high quality embroidery thread tonight as my last resort. If I can't get any good results, back to the store this will go.

Disappointed

Overall Rating:

Pros: Winds The Bobbins Fast.

Cons: Poor Quality, The Stitches Are Terrible.

13 out of 15 people found this helpful.

I have had trouble with this machine since I got it. It was a Christmas gift an I was so excited. I immediately started using it and I noticed that when I was using many of the stitches they weren't coming out right. I thought that it was the tension so I spent days trying to get it right. Eventually I quit trying to use the stitches because it just wasn't working. I decided to use it to work on my quilting projects. Again my stitches were not right. They were terrible. I did everything the manual said to do, I bought many different needles, many different threads, but I really think the issue is with the bobbin. While I sew the bobbin goes crazy and then a bunch of thread gets sucked up and my projects get ruined. I emailed Singer telling them I was very upset, a week and a half later they got back to me only to tell me to do the exact same things I already did, which is in the manual. I got it as a gift so I have no receipt, if I could return it I would, but I can't. So all I have now is a very expensive bobbin winder.

Was so excited to get my new machine. I carefully followed all advice in owner's manual. Then started the problems with the bobbins, thread, & dropped stitches. I used the bobbins sent...took forever to finally get the thread to draw up properly...usually 5-6 tries. Even with re-threading the top numerous times, the tension was not right & created an ugly mess on the underside of a quilt I was putting together. I'm returning it to the store. Have already ordered a different machine.

I love this machine. I have only had it for a few weeks. It is so easy to use. I love the auto thread cutter. It is so easy to thread the machine. I'm still learning to use all of the accessories it came with. I look forward to making everything from baby clothes, quilts, pillows and clothes for myself. Love it!
