The Singer 1725 is an ideal choice for someone who has never used a sewing machine before and wants to learn the basics of sewing. It is a simple and uncomplicated machine, making it great for the beginner to intermediate sewer. The straight, zigzag and decorative stitch options are clearly displayed on the front panel and easily accessible with a simple twist of the wrist. The three needle positions – left, right and center – give an added dimension to the decorative stitches available, significantly increasing the available options. The machine is easy to care for and is light weight – less than 20 pounds – with a handle top that folds down and is completely out of the way when it is in use. 25 year limited manufacturer warranty

The stitchwork is usually great, unless I'm being absurd with what I feed. More on that later. My results seem to convince others I've been sewing for 5+ years on a modern-midrange machine. I've only been sewing for about 2, but I can afford to be ambitious with my work because of how reliable this machine has proven to be for me, and the feedback I get shows.
As far as heavy usage goes, I've been able to handle things like reliably sewing 8 layers of "stretch sateen", and producing french-seamed in-seam pockets for a lined skirt. It hasn't let me down yet for any of my cosplay needs.
There was a time it seemed to get regularly jammed, but it was a hand-me-down and I thought it was just wearing out. It would screech and struggle with making simple stitches, or thread would get caught somewhere inside the bobbin mechanism (whatever it's called). Over the next dozen uses, I started occasionally taking a can of compressed air to the insides between stitches, and eventually, a lot of "dust" comprising of fabric fibers and clumps of actual dust blew out, and all of the problems I had disappeared. So, it would seem that with basic maintenance, I have still yet to face any unsolvable problems. I would definitely recommend this machine as a starter sewing machine.
Very easy to use and a great asset to my decorating and clothing habits!
