I got this mini sewing machine to do small crafts and quick mending, so I did not have to drag out my big machine. It is a good machine for the money. Not heavy duty, it is meant for small projects. My 8 year old hemmed her flannel pajama bottoms and it worked great. She never used a sewing machine before and with a few seconds of instruction she hemmed both bottoms without any problems. I like the slow speed, you don't feel like you are loosing control like on a bigger machines. I think that the poor reviews are because people are expecting too much, I noted one person was trying to make a pair of pants -- I would not expect this machine to handle making an entire peice of clothing or sewing through heavy denim layers or anything like that. I have not tried using it on battery yet, so I have not tried the low and high speed settings, however what I have seen so far I am very pleased with. Again, this is a $50 machine people, you cannot expect it to be as good as a full sized $200+ machine, but I feel I got more than my money's worth with this Pixie.

I purchased this machine earlier this week in a retail store for about $50 (on sale). I had read the reviews here on Amazon and was somewhat put off by all the negative comments, but I was traveling and wanted to finish a project I had started at home on my full-sized machine, also a Singer. I used the machine yesterday for about an hour to sew some VERY heavy duty Velcro strips to polar fleece for some barn items, and had literally NO problems. After quickly scanning the instructions, I used my own thread, and bobbin-threading was no more of a hassle than on my regular machine. I had no really nasty thread jams, only a couple of little ones caused by the thread slipping out of the place in the route marked "2," something that also happens occasionally on my large machine and is easily fixed. I'd recommend simply taking a quick look before each piece you sew to make sure the machine is still properly threaded to prevent any problems. As far as power goes, the Pixie seems to have a strong little motor. I was using the AC adapter, but if it works as well on batteries. I'll be very impressed. It is as loud as a freight train, but honestly, who cares? I used straight stitch on this project and the stitches were more or less straight and even in appearance, even through the thick Velcro, and definitely sturdy. I tried some of the other stitches on the little piece of test fabric that came with the machine, and they also looked fine. I wouldn't expect to be able to use this machine for sewing garments, because there is no adjustment of stitch width or length, but for small home, craft, and mending jobs- hemming drapes and pants, quick throw pillows, teen sewing projects, simple quilt blocks, etc.- it should be great. I'd have been even happier if I had paid the fantastic Amazon price for it. Don't hesitate to buy- if you have reasonable expectations and don't expect it to rival your $200 regular sewing machine, you won't be disappointed!

I bought this machine for my 6 year old daughter as a Christmas present and she loves it!! It works great for beginning sewing projects. So far she has made a quilted blanket and a pillow for her dollies, and we just got it today!

I took a chance buying this machine as it gave a package of extra goodies (thread, spools, etc) with the order. The machine works well. It may be a bit under powered as I purchased it for stiching our boat cover made of canvas. It came with a trial piece of cloth with the manufacturer test connected to it. I have since used this machine on denim and other heavy items. I know I am pushing the limits of the machine, but it still is working... The eight stich options are a plus. Foot pedal is sensitive and is either on or off and only at the slow speed. It does look like a toy, but it is not. Only difficult part is treading the line, but the machine has print on it to diagram how to do it if you forget.

Don't buy this machine!

This is a response I got when I contacted SInger after opening my brand new Pixie and the bobbin would not pull up the thread:

Thank you for contacting Singer. It sounds like the timing has been
disrupted on this unit. Unfortunately if that is the case, it is not
repairable as we do not carry replacement parts for this small disposable
machine.

Disposable! They called it disposable. I bought the Brother Project Runway machine for the same price and it is amazing. i will never buy another Singer product.

I put this little sewing machine on my birthday list two years ago when I really got into sewing my own clothes. I absolutely love it!!! My mom has a big (and expensive) Singer machine that I was used to sewing on, and honestly, I like my Pixie better. I've used it pretty much weekly for two years and it rarely jams, sews evenly, and has plenty of power. I've made so many skirts, blouses and a couple of dresses with no problem. I've worked with everything from delicate chiffon to heavy jacquard and thick wool blends. This is the perfect little machine for me--I love it. It looks like a toy, but it has plenty of strength. It sounds like some other reviewers have had one-time issues, I'm not sure. But mine has been perfect right out of the box and has been going strong since September 2011 with a ton of use.
