I bought my Singer 7470 December of 2009. I have no problems with this machine. It runs smoothly, it is quiet. Along with the variety of stitches, you have a choice of reverse image, twin needle. It allows you to change the stitch width and the stitch length of each stitches. It comes with the Alphabets, numbers 0 through 9, commas, quotation marks, etc. You have a choice needle and down which is great especially when you are quilting. There is a dial that lightens or darkens the display screen. It has a button called the infinity stitch you can use on the specialty stitches. It gives you a choice of stitching just one of the specialty stitch such as the puppy dog or allows you to do a whole role of puppy dogs. It's ease of use, multiple choice of stitches, variety of button holes to choose from makes this a Great Machine for a Good Price. I have my machine for little over 3 years now and No Problems. My Singer 7470 will last me for the next 25 years of Great Enjoyable Sewing.
My wife loves it but would have liked the lettering to be larger.
I bought this machine when price was much higher from a different merchant. First big project machine lost timing and required service. Now, it's not 5 years old and Singer Rep says return to factory. Major gear broke when winding a bobbin.
I got this machine for Christmas and I love it! The only sewing I have ever done was in high school so I wanted a nice machine but not too complicated. This machine is perfect! I love that it is computerized. It makes switching stitch patterns so simple! This machine was not hard at all to figure out. The manual is very good. I love the auto threader!!! I have seen where some people thought it was complicated....I watched a youtube video the first time I threaded the machine and they showed you how to use the auto threader, very simple!! http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how+to+thread+singer&FORM=VIRE8#view=detail&mid=5BC289F17270A68740265BC289F17270A6874026
I have so far hemmed 5 pair of jeans and fixing to start a blanket (have also practiced a lot). I really enjoy this sewing machine!
I am currently on my second project with the new Singer. Singer is a dependable product. I had no problems with it making a quilted tote bag. Now I am making a silk blouse. I am having problems with the bobbin thread knotting. I have adjusted the tension as recommended, no luck. I know I have to keep working with it and learn the machine more. It is going to be a great little machine for basic sewing once I get to know it better. Love the fact that it has 25 year warranty. I just used up my Husqvarna of 15 years. I came back to my old faithful Singer for the dependabality reason. I would prefer the ability to adjust the pressure foot pressure when sewing with lighter fabric. I haven't tried the other stitches yet, but am anxious to do many more projects on it.
Love the machine
I forgot how nice it is to sew on a good machine.
