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

After spending a lot of money having my clothes altered and repaired, I decided that I would by a sewing machine and do them myself. I grew up in a home with a Grandmother who sewed a lot, but I haven't used a sewing machine in years. I looked at a lot of machines. Some were more expensive than this machine, some were less expensive. Once I saw this machine, it seemed to have all the features I needed, and was at an affordable price. It is very easy to set up and use. I hemmed my first pair of pants the second day I owned it, and they came out good. My Grandmother used a Singer sewing machine for decades, so I trust the brand. Thanks Singer! Just to give some perspective, I am a 43 year old man who's other hobbies include riding motorcycles, camping, and boating. Now I guess I will have to include sewing on my list of hobbies:)!

I should have known better

Cons:
Poor Quality, Few Features, Sticky Foot Control

The quality on this machine is just not there. It's way too noisy (and that is well hidden from the consumer because the videos mask the sound) and the stitch quality is inconsistent. The foot "control" is really sticky/touchy and makes it hard to control the machine. Those aren't the characteristics you want in a machine geared to new sewers, in fact they could discourage new sewers from wanting to continue. With so much negative publicity that is so public right now, I don't understand why Singer would put so much effort into a machine of this poor quality. On the outside it's "cute," but that's about all it is. I wanted to like this one, Singer, I really did, but I should have known better.

It's OK for the money

Pros:
Good Value, Easy To Use, Powerful

Exceptional for the money! But I had a problem with the reverse feature - it keeps bending the needle - so I just don't reverse anymore and - don't know if this is bad... but it goes way too fast... lol... even on the low... I'm not the best sewing machine operator and I like to go slow - I loved that it offered that feature - but the low goes too fast - that could just be me though. Other than that - and that all the accessories that were listed on the outside of the box were missing - it is a very good value - it has a lot of power and can go through many layers of material (I'm piecing a quilt together). I'm very pleased with my find - and it was only $60 at Walmart!
