    I was not too sure if this product would work at all as it is so reasonably priced. I works for me and there is no worry about threading or bobbins. It does what the specs say it will do and it is wonderful for mending.

    I bought this for the main reason of creating my own Halloween costume. It's proformance is excellent. I bought Singer because it's now of the oldest names in the sewing Industry. I used it to place zippers and stich holes. I plan to make other things with it like dresses and quilts. I love the modle and it's well worth the money.

    This is my son and daughter's first time sewing and they are able to use this sewing machine easily. The slow speed made it easy for them to guide their stitch. The faster speed is okay for my sewing. We love it. If you sew a lot, you may want a faster sewing machine.

    • I would say no. I am a beginner and I was getting aggravated with the thread continuing to break over and over. There is no way to control the speeds. I would spend the extra $20 and get a Brothers.

    • I would not recommend this machine to anyone, especially a beginner. If I had used this machine as a beginner, I would have gotten discouraged and given up on sewing. The Vivo has gotten mixed reviews with about 50% of users having difficulty. I would suggest that you read reviews on other models you are considering and purchase one with more consistant positive reviews.

    • The Vivo is not designed for use by children but it is certainly a great option for kids to learn to sew if they have the appropriate adult supervision. Basic stitch selections make it easy to pick a stitch and go. Two sewing speeds allow a controlled, slower speed then many machines provide by forcing the machine to go slower allowing the child to focus on technique and watching where little fingers are. A Blind Hem stitch and presser foot is included so one can master the fold required for this useful technique. A Buttonhole and Zipper Foot are not included but with practice these could be learned the ‘traditional’ way – how we did it before machines became ‘smart’.

    • I would be a bit concerned with only 2 speeds. Learning the sewing techniques requires snail pace for some things and I would be worried that there is no varying the speed other than what it is set to do. May be worth spending a bit more, or looking at a nice used machine so you don't have any set speeds - it all depends on how much pressure you put on the pedal.
