    My sister bought me this machine for my birthday last month and I haven't stopped sewing since I took it out of the box. I have not had one problem with this machine, and I have been using it every day for the past 3 weeks. I have made 2 Halloween costumes, and I am starting on the third tomorrow. I would highly recommend this product. Even though I did no pay for my own, it is a great value for the price, and you can never go wrong with a Singer. Also, the instruction DVD is very informative and gives excellent detailed instructions on the correct way to install the thread and bobbin and also on how to use the stitch features as well as the button hole maker. I love this sewing machine!!

    I bought this machine a few years ago as a beginner who had never touched a sewing machine before. I still use this machine today and have never had any major problems that require service. When I had a problem with my bobbin thread making nests I cleaned out the area, adjusted my bobbin holder, and played around with the tension and it worked fine. I have had to take it apart and oil it when it began making grinding noises but after that it stopped. I use this machine to piece and to quilt using a generic walking foot and using a darning pressing foot (I think it is called that). I also use it to make purses and it is serving me well.

    I just bought this machaine- $99.00 best machaine ever had, my last singer lasted me for 25 years and resold to someone else for $25.00 she is still using it, I just wanted a new one, great price, great machaine, for any age, has a great DVD to help you with all the stiches, the button hole maker is awesome, the self threading needle is the best, I have been sewing for 20 some years and this is the best, is Singer, 25 year warranty, best of all no drop in bobbin, and the bobbin case is metal not plastic.. reccommend to any age and sewing experience.... I have just started to make quilts and works great for that....

    I have owned 3 Singer machines in the 40 years I have been sewing. My first one was a black heavy metal Singer that was given to me when I was about 12 yrs old. I still have it and it works great but only has forward and reverse. The next Singer I won in the "Fastest Needle in the West" sewing contest at the Oklahoma State Fair in 1981. It was a Model 2010. I used it until Oct 2008 when a gear broke inside. I took it for repair and since it was quite well used and loved, the repairman changed out the gear but it never seemed correct again. Since at this time I was now unemployed and needing a new machine but could not afford an expensive one, my choice was the Model 3116. I bought it January 2009 and it worked quite well until the reverse lever cracked and fell out after about 8 months of use. Overall though the machine has been a good value for the money. There are 2 other people in my immediate family that also purchased this model and they have had no problems with their machines.

    I read reviews on this page and bought this product. I had a singer very similar to this 15 years ago and LOVED it! It eventually froze up because it was old. When I finally got around to getting a new one I was excited. It worked for my first couple of hemming projects, it worked for my first 3/4 of a throw blanket (light weight material)... and then that is when the tension stopped working all together. No setting, no amount of re-threading, was going to fix the zero tension the machine produced. After only a few uses, it was useless. I got online to other sites and started to review the product. The reviews were much different there. I was assured it wasn't user error, this product has many issues for many users. For those of you who it works great for, keep it. I loved it way back when. But it does sound like there is a few lemons out there. Be careful, don't assume you have a lemon, check with some experts on how you are using it, and if it all checks out and the machine still isn't working for you, take it back.
