Singer has always been a name associated with quality, and that has not changed over the years.  This sewing machine is a good example of that quality.  It is powerful enough for denim, but also performs equally well with the sheerest fabrics.  The feeddogs can be dropped for precision seams and decorative stitching, and the stable work surface allows easy maneuvering of your work.  It automatically senses the weight of fabrics, and you don't have to manually adjust tensions.  The bobbin loads easily, and it is easy to use the self-threader.  The only drawback I have found is that the motor isn't quite strong enough to sew garment-weight leather. 

 I use this machine almost daily, as I sew for myself, my family, and friends.  I make clothing as well as curtains, cushions, and various household items as well.  This machine gives me no problems, not even when switching fabrics abruptly.  It is definitely worth the money.

I loved the Singer machine I grew up with. It had all metal parts and went through a flood where the whole machine was covered in mud, even the parts inside.  My uncle cleaned it and it is still working 30 years later.

When I left home my mom bought me a new Singer machine.  It worked okay, but there were many plastic pieces.

After awhile, I had problems.  I could not figure out how to keep it from getting plugged up with thread.

I bought another machine that had all metal part.  It works much better than my Singer, which I still have.  Just wish the metal parts would come back.

Great machine

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

I have to say, I am very impressed with the quality of the singer electronic sewing machine. I am not an advanced sewer but I am a mother that loves to create fun outfits for my daughter, friends, and myself. I mostly stick to simple patterns and I love using my Singer sewing machine. I like this machine because it is easy to use. Some sewing machines take hours to thread. I am impressed with how fast it is to thread and get started on projects. I also like that this machine has a lot of stafety features. I know thatI can lock the machine to keep it from my daughter and its even safe for me to use as well. I love all of the sewing features. This machine has a lot of great stitch settings. It even has a setting to sew on buttons which saves lots of time.

Stitch Performance

Ease of Use
A very easy machine to use.

Fabric Handling
This particular machine is great at handling fabric.

The design is compact making it easy to store and for fast projects.

Great little machine

By 

from USA

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

I got this as a birthday present last year and it has to be one of the best presents I've ever got. It's been used for all sorts of alterations - though mostly shortening trousers and hems of dresses for my family - and some simple dressmaking. The bobbin is nice and easy to drop in. It's easy to thread and select the right stitches. It's a great little machine, has never once let me down. The Singer reputation is well-deserved as it's good and sturdy. It's also very easy to get serviced when the need arises in a few years as Singer are so popular. They're popular for a reason, they build good solid machines that just work the way a sewing machine should.

In the box there was a handy manual to get me started as it had been years since I'd used an electric sewing machine. My previous machine was a foot powered treadle machine that belonged to my great-grandmother, that's how well Singer make their machines! Of course, only time will tell if I'll be passing this down to my great-grandchildren.

Versatility
Good selection of stitches.

Great for All Sewing Projects and Easy to Use

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

I have sewn costumes for my granddaughter on my old singer that was handed down to me from my mother and it finally broke after forty years! I decided to buy another Singer Sewing machine as the name equals quality! This year with the Frozen phenomenon, I had to make both Elsa and Anna costumes and they came out beautiful using this machine. You can use it to make most anything from clothes, to household items like pillow covers and so much more. I have made doll clothes and clothes for myself. The options on the machine are easy to use and the instruction manual is easy to follow. I recommend this machine to beginners and advanced sewers as well. The machine was simple to thread and winding the bobbin was equally as simple. This is a great machine for the money. It has a nice modern looking design and it seems to be very durable. Most all of the fabrics I have sewn on this machine has stitched easily with no problems.

so simple and pretty safe

By

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

I just started using this machine and I am so happy with it . It is so easy to use that I got it after the first time and this being that I never used a sewing machine before . You just need to make sure you have the material aligned right and steady . You should hold on to the material but not to strong the machine takes in it itself no need to push it in . The speed depends on how hard you press the pedal . To be safe always keep a safe distance between your fingers and the needle . I recommend this type of sewing machine for people who are beginners at using machines and for small projects .

Stitch Performance
The stitching comes out perfect and small but tight . I made a bag and use it to put textbooks in it and the stitching has not come undone yet .

Ease of Use
So simple the first time you will understand it . The hardest part is probably when you replace the thread . You just need to take off the bottom lid and make sure it clicks on.

Fabric Handling
It handles fabric good , I used soft flannel and did not damage it . I also , used nylon and it stitched it perfectly .

Versatility
I would say you can use it to make anything simple and all kinds of projects . I have made purses , book bags , applied zippers , shirts and even a tutu . It also has many design patters .

Design
The design is basic but it works well .

Durability
It is very durable , my grandmother has had it for over 5 years now and is still like new .

This sewing machine is definitely useful for sewing anything!

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

My mother first introduced me to using this sewing machine. So far, I have used it to create my own Nintendo DSi case as well as a laptop case. Its easy to use and it has different threading patterns as well. I have used it on denim fabric for my laptop case and it goes easily through it. It made beaded patterns on it. Although, it was a little hard to keep my hands sturdy on the fabric, and it looks a little sloppy, but with extra practice, anyone can make perfect seams like on clothing. I would also recommend that when using the pedal, do not press hard on it, but rather lightly because the faster it goes, the faster that your hand has to guide the fabric on the machine, and unless a person is a professional, the pattern will look jagged and all over the place, so it is important to go slow on the pedal.

Fabric Handling
I made a case for my netbook and used denim, bubblewrap, and another cloth and it worked well in the machine.

Great sewing machine, user friendly

By 

from Pueblo, CO

Comments about Singer Electronic Sewing Machine:

My singer sewing machine in great!  It is user friendly but also has some technical features for more complex sewing.  It is easy to load the bobbin and to fill it as well.  Easy to thread.  Glides will on most fabric.  Lightweight but strong enough to sew thick denim.
