BEST Value!!

Overall Rating:

This machine is AWSOME!! I bought this machine at amazon.com, and have not had any buyers remorse! The amount of feet this machine comes with is a bit overwhelming, but I'm sure I will adjust. The best value for the money, for sure! I received this machine in April of 2014, so I will report back once i have have had it for a while. The main reason I bought this machine was from watching youtube videos from KevinSews. I highly recommend you watch these videos before purchasing a singer machine to decide which machine best fits your sewing needs.

Love it so far, but auto needle threader is not so great

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use

Cons: Needle Threader Difficult

I don't have anything negative to say other than the auto needle threader works about 1/8 of the time.

So much fun to sew again

Overall Rating:

I purchased this machine after I decided I wanted to begin sewing after 20 years. It's so much more advanced than my very old Singer. The price was within my budget and had all the features i wanted. It's quiet, smooth and responsive. I'm planning projects so I can learn how to use all the presser feet.
There are a couple of disappointments though. The large table that comes with the machine is very light and is easily bumped around. It's just not very stable when doing quilting. The walking foot that came with the machine broke within an hour. The arm that rides on the needle lever kept getting stuck in the up position. I contacted Singer and never got a response. So I'll go to a big supplier on the internet and purchase another one.
Things I think you could improve? Make cutouts on the side of the dust cover so the cords could come through. Then I could leave the cords plugged in and just put the cover on top without having to unplug. The power connection doesn't look like it will stand a lot of fiddling.

Love Singer

Overall Rating:

I looked at several machines and decided on Singer 9970, because it had all the features I needed without the high price.'
When it was delivered I couldn't wait to try it out. I haven't used all the features but in less then 2 months I made two quilts and started another and worked on several smaller projects.
I had a Singer Touch & Sew that was purchased December 1966, and my daughter is still using it.
I am very happy with the new machine and expect to make many quilts with it.

I really enjoy using my new singer 9970. It has more then I could of imagined. I enjoy trying new settings. I have only had my machine for a short time but I can say that I am very satisfied with my purchase.

9970 Sewing Machine

Overall Rating:

Pros: Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Goo Instructional Book, Easy To Read And Informative

This is my 1st electronic sewing machine. I think this is a wonderful product. I received my machine only yesterday and within about 20 minutes I was up and sewing. I have already sewn a quilt top and the machine has performed beautifully. My other sewing machine was a White Sewing Jeans Machine that was over 20 years old, this machine is like a rolls Royce. It will take me a long time to use all of the extra feet that came with the machine, it is a good machine and a wonderful value.

I love my Singer embroidery machines and this 9970 is also a favorite. I am still learning to sew clothing and this machine is great with the extension table and large selection of feet. It also has nice stitch quality.

having trouble with this machine

Pros: Good Value, Easy To Use

Cons: Poor Quality, Poor Workmanship

I also purchased this model from HSN. I have had trouble with it for the past two months, and it is only five months old! The plastic door on the bobbin cover will not stay closed, and the bobbin housing itself will not stay in place, meaning that when I am sewing along, the bobbin housing shifts and moves and the needle breaks time and time again. Now it was so jammed this evening that the bobbin housing was way further up than it has been and I have broken three needles just today. The bobbin housing is supposed to come out to clean under it, but it will not stay where it is supposed. to. Of course, I cannot return it, as it is out of the 30 day return from HSN, and the nearest service center is 2 hours from my home, and it is 9 days before Christmas and I cannot get my grandchildren's pajamas sewn, really disappointed. I feel stuck with this machine.

I purchased my machine last month on HSN. Researched for several months and decided to take the plunge. I sewed for many years until my children, job, etc. kept me too busy. I had a singer machine that my husband purchased for me when we were first married in 1975. It was wonderful but wore out after many hours of use. I'm nearing retirement and really wanted to pursue sewing once again. Love, love, love it. Just finished my first project, a quilt for my granddaughter. My machine is so easy to use and it was like riding a bike, everything came back. I do like all the easy stitches, the feet, and can't wait to explore more as I own my machine longer.
All I have to do is get on utube to watch videos when I feel a little rusty or unsure of myself.

Unbelievable Value

Singer's reputation has taken a hit over the last years, so I was leery of this purchase. However HSN made it irresistible and I thought I'd take a risk. Am I glad I did! I have an Elna and had just returned from my local sewing shop, looking at high end machines. Now this one won't embroider Donald Duck like the $5,000 Brother I tried but I could go to Disney World with the money I saved. The lettering for which I got this machine is lovely and I can't wait to sew my grandson a new blanket for his big boy bed. I am considering getting one for my daughter as well. Great job Singer! Here's to your return to the top.
