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.Read more ›
Most machines brands similar in price provide this plate as an accessory you can buy. I assumed Singer would as well so I bought the machine without checking. Now I'm stuck with a machine that's overpriced but still performs at beginner levels. Make sure that if you're going to pay more $500 or more on your machine, this machine will allow you to sew for at least 4-6 years. Assuming your sewing ability will increase, the machine should have all the features you will need by the end of its useful life.
I've sewn several different kinds of fabrics both light and heavy and it handles them all great!
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.Read more ›
