I really like this machine! Easy to operate, runs smoothly, and the drop-in bobbin & needle threader are great. The foot pedal needs more weight, for it slips on carpeting. The thread slot on the presser foot should be on the left, since fabric is usually pushed into position from left-to-right. (With the slot on the right, the top thread is always pushed out from under the presser foot whenever the fabric is moved into the machine.)
Just love this new machine. It's basic, but has features (self threading, auto tension, bobbin winder) that make it easy to use. My husband bought it for me for Christmas, and I've already made drapes, mended several things, and have ideas for our new great-grandchild. I thought my mother's singer (treadle style from 1920's) was the best. It's what I learned on when I was 8 years old. I'm 72 now and am having more fun than ever. Yea Singer!
I bought this machine to carry me through while I repair my old machine with its first failure ever.
I may have been spoiled by my 39 year old Athena 2000.
In spite of technical advances over the years, this machine was like a starter machine with a lot of fancy stitches rather than an improved product.
Either this machine is a QC failure or the product itself is inferior. I plan on returning it for a replacement. If that is no better, I will get my money back.
Pros:Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

looking for a new machine, went to my favorite fabric store and found the singer 7363. one amazing machine and got a very good price too., then gave my daughterinlaw my old electric. this new machine is everything I could ask for , love to sew just about anything. so good that I'm back to sewing many things . so very happy
I put away my old sewing machine because it never worked properly so for years I didn't sew. Now that I have grandchild I thought it would be nice for them to have things that their Mimi made them. Saw this product on sale and purchased it online. I'm having a blast. The new technology is great, self threader, can change stitches by touching a button. Thank you Singer.
