Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 84reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great sewing machine for beginners. I was looking to buy a sewing machine but did not want to spend a lot of money for one right now. I looked at the Singer Simple and liked it at first. But I have heard bad things from friends who have bought the newer Singer machines and sorry they did- poor quality for one.I also did NOT like the style of bobbin the the Singer simple has. I've had other sewing machines with the same style bobbin and always have trouble getting the tension right with it. Then, one of my friends suggested I look into the Brother brand. (She owns a Janome and Brother and prefers her less expensive Brother over her Janome!)Well, I'm glad I decided to go with the Brother.I am very pleased with the quality of this machine. It didn't take long to get the bobbin winded and the machine threaded. No need to turn the handwheel first since placing the bobbin in the locked position keeps the needle from going up and down.I didn't have any trouble with the tension and have already sewn a couple things with it. I really like the features this machine has especially the top drop in bobbin. Easy to see how much thread is left without having to take it all apart. The machine is quiet- which my husband liked.The machine also came with a 25 year warranty which is nice. 12/21/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent machine no matter what skill level I am a somewhat experienced sewer, sewn industrially for 5 years and quilts from home for more years than I would like to admit. I bought this machine to attempt free motion quilting and to test my 10 &11 year old daughters out with it as a possible gift for Christmas.So far, I have owned this machine for about 3 weeks and it has worked beautifully. I had never sewn a button on or made a button hole by machine, but it was really simple with this one. The different stitch designs have also been tried out and I LOVE them. We have sewn 4 quilt tops with different levels of fabric thickness ranging from thin cotton blend up to fleece and denim. So far there haven't been any issues that couldn't be explained through user error.My daughters have picked up quickly how to use this machine as well with minimal assistance from me. I ensured they were in the room with me when I watched the DVD and pointed out the different parts on the machine that they were referring to as we went. They watched me sew for about 10-15 minutes then set down "to try". Once they learned how to keep their seams straight when guiding them through I lost my machine.Overall, this machine has been a very smart buy. I believe that more functions would be a waste personally. It is lightweight and can be moved from space to space easily, the LED is sufficient to add light to the task area, the bobbin is superb because you can load it easily and view it at any time to check how much thread is left, and if you have experience with controlling the presser foot and can control your speed well this machine can do about anything you need it to.I did buy a free motion foot for this machine from a seller on Ebay. The plate they provide for you with the machine does keep the feed dogs from pulling the fabric. I played with the machine for a while and it would be fine to use for smaller projects (baby blanket or smaller) but for the size of projects I am tackling (twin, full, and queen size blankets) I feel that being able to drop the dogs altogether would be a necessity. This is more of a personal preference due to my skill level. It would probably do the job, I am just not brave 08/24/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This little machine rocks my socks off.... After struggling greatly for about 3 months with a Singer Simple machine (which I thought the issue was human error, because I'm something of a novice at this) I finally did some research online. Turns out the issues I was having with the Singer are very common and there's really nothing you can do to fix it. So back to Wal-mart I went with the Singer to get some in store credit.My sister owns a Brother machine, which I used before I purchased my singer to hem 14 curtains with no issues what-so-ever. So I decided to pick up this little beauty.I had it home, set up and running in less then 10 minutes. Had a bobbin wound and top thread in place in less then 5 and went right to work on the mountain of mending and some craft work for gifts that I'd been putting off because of the insurmountable issues with my Singer.In the course of 6 hours, with two little ones underfoot I mended 3 pairs of pants, a bra, 2 pairs of little boy PJ's and made 32 brightly colored burp clothes for gifts and the baby girl we have on the way. Only once did I have a short issue with the bobbin, and it was most definitely user error, because the bobbin did not wind as nicely as the few I had done previously.I am insanely happy with this little machine, and have been talking to my husband about setting up an official sewing area for me so I don't constantly have to put it away and lug it back out.Great for novice sewers! 07/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great sewing machine for a beginner I wanted a sewing machine to do some mending around the home such as work uniforms, children clothes, etc.... I got this machine and it is "FABULOUS"!!! I sewed like seven articles of clothing and two laundry bags the first day and it did not miss a beat! Can't wait to use it again! Switching thread color is a breeze and threading the bobbin is a snap! Great instruction manual for easy start up. I love this machine! Very satisfied with my buy. Oh yeah by the way I am a man so men you can get your sew on! I would definitely refer this machine to a friend! 02/29/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Perfect machine for beginners! I am a complete beginner when it comes to sewing. I have never owned a machine or been taught to sew by someone else... ever. I picked up this machine at Wal-Mart, and couldn't be more pleased. It is on the lower end of sewing machine's cost-wise, but for the price, it's a great value. It has tons of stitches (more than I need, really), a well-lit work area, and is soooo easy to thread and wind a bobbin on this machine. You don't need to pay more if you are just starting out... this is perfect. If the fact that it does not have a self-threading needle option is scaring you away, do NOT let it! It is so extremely easy to thread the needle on this. Oh, and it has a drop-in bobbin feature that makes it so easy to use, too. It came with an instructional DVD and a detailed manual. Like I said, I've never sewn before in my life, and I was able to use this out of the box and sew an entire cloth diaper using it. Mind you, my sewing straight lines leaves much to be desired, but with some more practice I can do it much better. GREAT MACHINE at a GOOD PRICE! 06/15/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Good for the money This sewing machine gets jammed easily but it is a good value for the money, would definitely recommend it for the price you pay, it is great for beginners or light use. It is also very simple to use, has a good variety of stitches, is quiet, and looks cute. It has a few shortcomings, but not enough to knock it for quality compared to price. 05/10/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for beginners My Mom is an AMAZING Seamstress. All my life she has tried to teach me to sew. Unfortunately I never could learn this amazing talent of hers. At any rate I recently had the inkling to start sewing so I went and bought this machine. When I got home it was VERY easy to get started right away. Very self explanatory. I successfully made my first drawstring bag (YouTube is amazing for step by step tutorials for beginners). I had my mother check it over (by the way I am 40 hahaha) and she was very impressed with the quality of stitching the machine put out. Although she did tell me her first machine was a brother as well and it was a great machine also. This is a low cost machine that offers awesome end results. I say with extreme passion this is an awesome buy and definitely exceeded my expectations!!!! Just a side note to anybody else who is just starting to dabble in sewing, if your local Walmart has a fabric center UTILIZE IT!!! The difference in cost of fabric at Walmart and the "speciality stores" is UNREAL!!! 04/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Machine for the price I am and advanced beginner to intermediate sewer. I bought this machine when my machine gave out on me in the middle of a project. Because I paid so little for the machine, I was not expecting much. This machine surprised me! It really is a nice machine for the price. The stiches are not bad for an entry level machine. It is easy to set up and easy to use, It is also an attractive machine to boot! It is light weight and easy to move from room to room. It would be a fantastic machine for a child or occasional sewer. It would also make a good machine to take to sewing classes.This machine doesn't have any bells and whistles, but for 80.00, I think it is a good buy. I did not intend on keeping it, I figured I would use it to finish my project and then I would resell it. It impressed me enough that I chose to keep it as a back up machine.Anyone who buys this machine, should buy it not expecting anything more then a basic machine. In my opinion, after having tried other entry level machines, I think this one does a better job then other machines in it's price range. The stitches are tight and the dial is easy to read and turn. The feed dogs do a pretty good job of pulling the fabric and I love the location of the thread cutter. The light is bright and the work area is sufficient for a smaller machine.If you are wanting a machine with more then basic features, do not buy this machine. If you want a machine that will do the job(and then some!) buy this machine. Just remember that it is very much an entry level machine that was built for light use and you will be a happy customer. :) 03/15/2012
