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.

Singer 9970

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: Wish It Had The Auto Bobbin Rewind My 1970's Machine Had.

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.

having trouble with this machine

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 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.
