Cons:
Complicated, Not User Friendly, Too Many Problems

My mom has been using sewing machines for a long time. So I wanted to learn the skill, and do basic sewing ideas myself. I have made myself a pair of shorts with this machine, which was a good experience.

The machine has been too annoying, and too sensitive. When there are countless youtube videos on how to use, and maintain a machine, there obviously is a problem with user friendliness.

I can completely understand why youngsters aren't (and will not be) interested in sewing. It seems to be more about the machine, than the sewing itself. If you are a beginner, I say wait till a company comes up with a user friendly sewing machine that wouldn't be too annoying to use.

I wanted to post this review before packing up the Promise II given its latest problem of bottom thread jamming.

for simple basic sewing, this machine works well but it does not work well for knit fabrics and the instruction book does not have instructions for different types of fabrics. also, the upper thread does not stay in place.

Pros:
Easy To Use
Cons:
Few Features, Tempramental

I got this machine for Christmas in 2013. I was over the moon, I loved it. I used it virtually everyday and everyday would get increasingly frustrated with the bobbin. It's almost as though it might get too hot, or alignment would get off. It would work for several minutes then bunch up. And with no real way to adjust the tension makes it frustrating.

This machine is good for light use, very basic sewing, and someone who is willing to spend extra time to go slow and not use the back stitching.

It has difficulty going through 4 layers of thin cotton and batting (table runners)

Overall, it is an OK machine.

It's good for the price you pay.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Singer 1512 Promise Ii
Cons:
None

Sewing machine was easy to set up. I still knew how to thread. I sewed my first torn socks, just to try the machine out. It was wonderful, the only thing it didn't come with any oil. I guess I can go to some fabric place, and get me some oil for the machine. But instructions are easy to follow. My husband gave me this singer as a gift. I use to sew my little girls clothes, now I have grandsons, so I can sew their clothes. I really enjoy this singer, it even stitches in reverse.
