Additional Features & Benefits

Electronic Sewing Machine with Push-Button Stitch Selection
With just a simple push of a button you have selected the stitch and the optimum settings for length, width, balance, pressure and tension.

Automatic Reverse
Push the conveniently located automatic reverse button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.

7mm Stitch Width
Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.

Twin Needle Sewing
By using a twin needle and manually reducing the stitch width, two parallel rows can be sewn to add a decorative touch. Create pintucks and more with twin needle sewing.

Sewing Speed
With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per minute, projects can be sewn quickly.

Automatic Tension
This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being used.

Five Snap-on Presser Feet
Expands your creative sewing possibilities.

Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.

6-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate feeding.

Box Feed
This is a feed dog motion that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.

Thread Cutter
Located for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors.

Free Arm
Provides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.

Portable and Cabinet Mountable
Machine has a built-in carry handle, making it easy to transport the machine. Machine can be mounted into a cabinet.

Heavy-Duty Metal Frame
This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.

On-Board Storage
Storage of accessories in the closed-lid conversion-table-accessory storage area means accessories are always handy.

Electronic Stitch Formation
All stepper motors are electronically controlled. Digital electronic control of the stepper motors that control the pattern formation allows for perfectly formed patterns every time.

Optimum Power Control
A control system senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (six to eight) layers of fabric.

30 Built-In Stitches

Included stitch guide is a handy reference that tells you when to use every stitch and setting.
6 essential stitches
6 essential stitches are the core stitches of construction and mending.
5 stretch stitches
5 stretch stitches are specially designed to move with your fabric.
17 decorative stitches
17 decorative stitches create special details on any project.

Before reading, please understand that this is my fist sewing machine. So while I do not have a lot to compare it against, I can provide what I've learned through my research that led me to choose this product, as well as my experiences with it so far.

After doing a lot of research, I chose THIS sewing machine for some pretty specific reasons:

1. It's pretty heavy, weighing in at 27 pounds. Why is this a benefit? It's sturdy, very sturdy, with a metal frame inside. Everything I've read leads me to believe that the lighter plastic machines simply don't last, while the old-school metal monstrosities keep working forever. I feel that this one has the best of both worlds. It looks sleek and classy, but can still sew through multiple layers of denim or thick fleece with no trouble.

2. The controls are all analog, with no digital programming to malfunction. You just push the buttons to select your stitch and go, and there are sliding levers for stitch width and length. It seemed that the digital models are wonderful, but sometimes they go wrong, and I just wasn't willing to deal with that.

3. It got good reviews. I read all the reviews for a number of different machines I was considering by Brother, Singer, and Janome, literally thousands in total. Considering that I was trying to come up with something that would LAST and be an investment without spending an arm and a leg, this one beat out the others. I also considered % of reviewers who rates it 4 stars or higher vs. 3 stars and under for each machine. They all have some 1-star reviews for some reason or another, but at the time of both my purchase and the writing of this review, this one seems to have less than its share of unhappy buyers compared to other similar machines here on Amazon.

This is the first new sewing machine I've ever bought and I love it. I've been sewing for 40years, quilting for 30 and never treated myself to a decent machine. When my second hand-me-down died I decided it was time. I love the nice bright light, the auto needle threader, and the drop in bobbin feature. The foot pedal took a little getting used to, as my old one was wider, but it works well.
I've sewn several different kinds of fabrics both light and heavy and it handles them all great!

I purchased my Singer Curvy Sewing Machine in August 2008 after taking sewing lessons learning on a Pfaff machine. After getting accustomed to some of the convenient and easy to use features on the Pfaff machines, I set out to find an equally convenient, easy to use AND affordable sewing machine. My research led me to the Curvy, and I have no regrets. I have completed many projects with this machine, all of which came out beautiful. Best of all, the machine is easy to use and has many convenient features. All in all, the Curvy has proven to be a great value to me and I will be enjoying it for a very long time!

I'm an experienced sewer who received this machine as a gift about 5 years ago and have used it to sew a few dozen mid-weight fabric projects (many alterations, a few dresses including my wedding dress, throw pillows, a small quilt for my baby, etc.). It gets the job done, but I actually had to lower expectations from the 30+year old Singer machine that I learned on at home.

Here are the main problems with this machine:

-The stitch length nob slides from 1 to 7, with 1 hammering out stitches less than half a mm and 7 making about 3.5mm stitches. Two problems here: first, this arbitrary numbering system does not correlate with either of the commonly used stitch length systems that you'll run across in patterns (SPI or stitches per inch, and millimeters), so you have to do a little trial and error to figure out where you need to set your slider nob. Second, the longest stitch, at 7, is still not as long as you need for a basting or gathering stitch on sturdier weight fabrics like courderoy.

-The needle rests at its highest position when you take your foot off the treadle rather than at its lowest position, in the fabric, which makes pivoting around points (used often in quilting) more difficult. You have to manually wheel the needle into the fabric every time you want to lift the presser foot and pivot the fabric.

-The machine does not make even stitches or perfectly straight lines, which isn't a huge problem if you're sewing for yourself. However, I couldn't trust my machine for any school sewing assignments and I wouldn't use it for any commission sewing, which meant that I was always in my college's sewing lab finishing things even though I had a machine at home.

After many decades of service, my wife's old Singer finally went kaput so we researched several different machines before deciding on this one. Not only did Amazon offer the best value, but my credit card had barely cooled when the machine and case arrived - super fast shipping. I know, I know - guys aren't supposed to give APPLIANCES as gifts but that's what she wanted and that's what she got.

Although this was a Christmas gift the wifey has been dieting and had quite a few outfits to alter before the holidays, so I encouraged her to open the boxes and get acquainted with her new machine. Right away, we were struck by just how much larger this machine was in person than when viewed on the web site. It's not really huge, just a bit bigger than we's envisioned. The machine works great, and she is still learning all the functions and features.

One curiousity - there was no instructional DVD with this particular machine, and nothing in the product description to indicate there would be one included, but it sure would be helpful - especially for a guy like me that is not very sewing machine savvy. Beyond the presser feet described on the web site, ours came with a whole 'nother bag of different presser feet - 4 or 5 others that we have not yet identified. Not sure if this was a packaging mistake or what, but it was a bonus. Singer *should* at least include a descriptive sheet of the different presser feet along with the intended use for each one so we'd know exactly what we're working with here. My bride is no stranger to Singer products, but this has even her a bit baffled. There's a double fistful of presser feet and are left to discover their useful functions on our own. This is the only reason I only rated this product at four stars instead of five.
