Comparable to the high end machines

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

I wanted a really good high end embroidery machine that did not cost as much as a small car. This machine is comparable to the much more expensive brands. The difference is that Singer cut the cost by letting all the design work be done on the laptop or PC instead of in the machine. It is easy enough to transfer designs using the USB stick. The variety of embroidery hoop sizes is nice and the endless embroidery hoop is a great addition. The software on the provided USB stick is easy to install and use. It is easy to switch between the sewing bed and the embroidery unit. The bobbin winder worked perfectly and I am happy to have the option of using the knee attachment to run the machine. There are lots of videos on the Singer web site and YouTube. This has a large footprint and it is heavy, but I highly recommend this machine if you are serious about sewing and machine embroidery but need to live within a budget.

I have been sewing most of my life but embroidery is a new adventure for me. I was a little intimidated when I set the machine up but the online tutorials and onscreen tutorials made it very easy. I have read where other brands of embroidery machines have different "issues" but I have not found this to be the case with this machine. I love it!!!!

If you follow all of the instructions from singer and always start your embroidery at a slow speed you will have no problems. This machine is so easy to operate and I look forward to the many creative ways I will use it. Applique turned our lovely. Use the bobbin fill not standard thread when embroidering. The only reason I give it 4 not 5 stars is because it has to be plugged in to a computer to embroidery and I find the bobbin winder doesn't work quite as smoothly as my other machine. I also am not a fan of the thread spool laying on its side, I find I have to watch close for hang ups but use of the netting on spool greatly reduced any problems.

Embroidery machine has a large learning curve not good for a novice... Like to see more how to / tips & tricks videos on website.... spool spindle gets tangled and causes thread breaks...bought a separate spindle stand to eleviate problem.

I have this machine and the SEQS6000 and I absolutely love these machines. I have them both going at the same time and having a ball. I would recommend these machines. Can't be without them.
