Wonder nice looking machine. Tension is wonderful from the start. Easy to use and understand. Love the extension table it comes with. Has 100 decorative stich patterns, and they all look and work great. Ther only thing is it does not sew bulk. It will struggle and struggle and needle breaks or bobbin gets jammed. Is good for light sewing no more than 3 layers of fabric. But is great buy it.

Hemming a pair of jeggins was a nightmare ~~~

I've owned a few different sewing machines in my day and recently mine broke so I bought a new one. I have owned this machine for only a few hours and I am considering returning it. The treader is not automatic like it states. You have to move a device and place the thread in little hooks and then swing the arm into the needle which eventually threads the needle. You then pull loop of thread. I tried to hem a pair of jeans with the hem folded only once and the machine would not stop getting jammed and giving me error code 4 which is a machine jam. Upon inspection I found wads of thread under the jean leg. The machine does not like thicker than usual thread either. I can't count how many times this happened. I was using jean thread and jean needle and it couldnt handle it. The jeans were actually jeggins which are leggings that have jean material to them. I honestly don't think I would be able to hem a real pair of jeans with this machine. The gap under the foot is too short. I couldn't get a folded hem of the jeggins to go underneath without a fight! The only positive thing I can say about this machine is that it has a lot of stich options and somewhat of a cover to it. Other than that I can't say I would recommend it especially at almost $200

Love this machine! It's my first sewing machine and at first the threading might be a little difficult to get down but if you get frustrated just take a short break like I did and try it again. I used youtube videos for help and that's how I got it down. The machine is very easy to use once you get past the threading it really is EASY. DVD is helpful when trying to learn what each needle is used for. How to choose your fabric for certain projects and important info as such.

I have the 7256 and have used it regularly for 2 years. Its easy to use, works great, the Machine has a lot of decrotive stitiches but I usually end up using the straight or zig-zag stitches. I've read some reviews about the threader not being "automatic" but I've used it a thousand times and yes you do have to put the thread on the threader hook, but its easier then fishing it thru the hole alone! Overall this is a simple machine to use and its a hard worker. Also, I love the automatic button hole feature -night and day compared to a machine without one!

I am very happy with this new Singer. It is replaceing one I had for 40 years. I wish it had a drop in bobbin, but I will get the hang of this. The needle threader is a bit trickey, I also have a Singer Futura & that threader is so easy, they should make them all the same. Very happy with all the features for the price.
