In the beginning it was a challenge
I like the way the machine is laid out. It's easy to change the stitch patterns and adjust their length and width. Threading is easy. The needle threader works great! I really love that this machine has the ability to adjust the pressure on the foot and drop the feed dogs. I'm really glad that feature is back again! The light is good and right where it is the most helpful - another plus! This machine is simple to operate, but even then, I had a real problem with it. The problem was significant enough that I came very close to bringing my machine back and exchanging it, but decided to give it one more try. I was just sewing on cotton fabric, nothing fancy, but the needle thread kept getting caught around the bobbin carrier and I'd have a tangled mess of thread underneath. I know that the first thing to check is the upper threading, so I did that; I changed the needle, I changed the thread, I checked the timing - all of those things - and the thread still kept getting caught. I finally just used the hand wheel with the bobbin cover off and manually sewed a few stitches to see what was happening where. Aha! Attached on the underside of the throat plate is a small metal bar that sits just over the bobbin carrier. That's where the thread was getting caught - there wasn't enough clearance between that little bar and the bobbin case and the thread was dragging there and being caught on the next stitch as well (and making a real mess of things!). It was a simple fix: I removed the needle plate and adjusted that little bar by just slightly pushing it up towards the needle plate. I reattached the needle plate, and tried it again, and that has solved the problem perfectly. Now this machine is sewing just like I expected it to. It was a simple fix, but I shouldn't have had to make that correction. This machine has some power to it, and sews through multiple layers of fabric with ease. The selection of stitches will accommodate just about any sewing project you will have. It feeds fabric evenly and the stitch quality is very good. To get the most out of the stitches in this machine consider adding the following presser feet: straight stitch/1/4 inch foot, blind hem foot, satin stitch/applique foot, and rolled hem. The bare minimum of feet have been provided with this machine. This machine is noisy (motor). It has more motor noise when you sew slowly than when you are sewing faster. Now that the thread path problem has been fixed, I think this machine and I will be friends for a long time. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't for the problem I had in the beginning. If the machine I got had been received by a beginner it would have been returned.
I'm a seamstress with 35 yrs. experience. I own 4 sewing machines. I wanted a machine that would sew light weight material for Halloween costumes as well as one that would do heavier stuff like several layers of denim, this machine does both very well. The 1000 stitches per min. helps a lot with long seams like curtains too. I looked for awhile for a replacement for my old Dressmaker & I'm very happy with this one. I don't use the decorative stitch function much, but I love that I can see how much thread is on the bobbin & the auto thread is of enormous help. If your looking for a good basic machine, this is it. Wal-mart shipped it right to my house & very quickly. I'm very satisfied.
I killed my old machine, so I went and got a Singer Classic. It is great. I love the needle threader and all the stretch stitches!! I know I'm going to enjoy it for years to come.
Excellent, if you have a little knowledge already
I sew for a living and I wanted something that would last a long time and was able to do a variety of things so I can expand without worrying about what my machine can handle. This is HEAVY DUTY, mannn. The instructions were excellent, there was even instructions on the machine how to thread it (though I already had some knowledge of that). The only reason this is 4 stars is because somehow, the housing for the bobbin was not resting as it should in its own housing, which caused a lot of problems and it was unusable for a couple days, and I couldn't work on anything. But after I called my friend who knows some about sewing machines, they helped me by taking a look at it, and found that it was the bobbin housing (the thing the bobbin goes in) wasn't resting properly. Once it was back in the proper position and not wobbling around, everything was fine and I can zoom ahead and do all my sewing with no worries. It makes me feel like I'm using power tools, but it's so easy and I love it.
Fantastic Sewing Machine
I have not sewn since 8th grade and 36 yrs later I could easily recall what I learned on this sewing machine. I followed the directions and I was quickly sewing my pillows with ease. The machine is a quality and durable machine and sews on duck fabric and burlap with ease! I use this machine to sew pillows for my business.
