Pros:
Good Value, Easy To Use, High Quality

This is my first machine. I had a go on my wife's mothers old machine a few weeks ago and found it a bit hit and miss. I was successful enough to want to do some more machine sewing.

I went for this one because it was on offer and not the very cheapest. Two features on my must have list were than it has a metal frame and electronic speed controller. I have used large machine tools in the past. My family gave me quite a lot of clothing to repair over the first few days and I think the machine has paid for itself already! Not a single broken thread or error from the machine. The only problem I had was with step 4 of the button hole when running through all the settings, but that could be me.

No problem with zigzag through three layers of polyester sail cloth.

Regards,

Andrew

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Lightweight, Has A Handle For Carrying
Cons:
Some Plastic Pieces Like The Presser Foot Lever And The Casing

My 33 year-old machine finally gave it up in the middle of a mending project. So I ran to Target to pick up a sewing machine thinking that I was going to buy another Brother. But there was only one model available - the Singer Promise! So I gave it a try! It was so easy to set up and use! I finished the project with no problems. Lightweight, has a handle for easy lifting and easy to use! A great basic machine!
