I love my new S18 Studio. It sews like a top, even extra thick seams. It is easy to use and the quick reference attachment is a fantastic aid. Couldn't beat the features for the price. Thanks Singer.

I have never used any thing other than singer products. My last machine was purchased 20 years ago and has enabled me to make some incredible quilts but with limited design capabilities. The studio S18 really allows me to explore my creative side. Though I was extremely nervous during its first use, it has become a love affair that I've been waiting for. I just finished my second quilt and am so happy with the results I don't want to give it up. The money spent on this machine is well worth it. I would recommend this machine to anyone who asked for my opinion.

Near perfect, the foot pedal cord is way too short and the knee operated press foot bar needs to be adjusted a bit to the left. Needs another light in throat area. Other than that the sewing capabilities are excellent, even better than the juki hzl f600.
