Rated 4 out of 5 by nyfreedombelle An Excellent Buy
I'm not one who usually leaves reviews, but this machine inspired me to write.
I've been an on-again, off-again sewer for the better part of two decades. I learned how to sew on my grandmother's 1950s model Singer sewing machine (hated it), and for the last ten years have used a Europro that my mom gave me as a graduation present. When the Euro-Pro died mid-project, I headed off to my local Walmart where they had this model in-stock.
I'll admit, I was nervous at first to buy this model, especially when I saw that it had "automatic" stitch width and length set. When I got home, I was preparing myself mentally for having to take it back, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the "automatic" settings can be changed very easily, and it sews like a dream. Honestly, for the first sewing machine I've ever purchased myself, I'm incredibly happy and would recommend this model highly to any sewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MostHappyMommy I'm a beginner with sewing, have never owned a sewing maching, haven't even used one in 20+ years but I really wanted to get into sewing. This machine is great! I recieved the SewMate as a gift but the bobbin got hung up horribly after just a couple small projects so I upgraded a little to this machine. Very easy to use, simple threading, and I believe great for a beginner such as myself. Runs very smooth. It's pretty quiet too, I have a little one and I can use it just fine while he is napping in the other room. I would recommend this to anyone, even a beginner.
Rated 5 out of 5 by buggme I have had a Singer serwing machine for 45 years that has worked perfectly. I needed to replace it and chose this machine. The machine is wonderful. It does so many things and it sews on all weights of fabric without a hitch.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ar0378 Love it!!!
I bought this machine to replace a Kenmore I have had for 14 years. I got it home and tried it out. This machine doesn't shake or jump when using it. It is heavier than it looks. Everywhere else this machine cost more. It is easy to use. I highly recommend this one. I learned how to sew using a Singer when I was a teenager. I am glad I choose a Singer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by foxxygrandmother sept. 2012. bought this mchine because i needed the blanket stitch reversed to left side, sewed good for about 10 days, the it stared skipping stitchs. got out my book and did everything it said, changed needle, cleaned bobbin, made sure it was threaded correct. nothing helped. so i returned it . was a cheap made mchine to stat with, i thought a singer was better quality...........wrong. i would give it 2 stars.
