    A great machine, December 2, 2010

    The only negative thing I can say about this machine is this: It’s so much better than my Singer Esteem II that I’m wondering just how much better an even more expensive Singer would have been. Now that I’ve realized how much fun a better-than-basic machine can be, I’m starting to covet the machines that will do even fancier stitches and do letters.

    With that said, I didn’t really need to spend more than I did on this machine. So, I’m perfectly happy!

    1. The instruction manual is incredibly detailed. My basic Singer Esteem covered many features so briefly that I really didn’t know what I was doing. The Stylist manual even goes so far as to explain many of the included 100 stitches. The machine is pretty self-explanatory to get setup if you’ve sewed before. But it’s nice that any questions you have are probably in the manual and won’t require a long Google search.

    2. It sews VERY smoothly. And it’s so much quieter than my old machine.

    3. The option to have the needle stop up or down might not seem like a big deal – but it’s SO convenient once you get used to it. I love it!

    4. The slider to control the speed of the machine without the foot pedal also gives some speed control when the foot pedal is attached. Although my daughter is too young to sew now, I imagine that being able to limit the foot pedal’s speed for a beginner will be a great plus. And when piecing together long strips of fabric, in particular, the ability to sew without the foot pedal attached is a nice luxury. I was afraid it would be scary and hard to stop. But the Start/Stop button is located in a very convenient place, making it easy to stop the machine with your finger that’s feeding the fabric through.

    5. The stitches are really pretty. To bring back up my old Singer Esteem II – it had some extra stitches that looked quite awful and I wondered why anyone would ever use them. I kind of expected that with this model too, but since I sew mostly children’s clothing, it didn’t matter a lot to me if anything but standard stitches worked. But I have been very pleasantly surprised. I’ve already found myself embellishing some items with the pretty choices.

    6. Can you believe how many presser feet are included with this machine? Really, that alone is what sold me on it. I compared with other machines that offered all the other features except for the feet, and some were even more money. I’d never gotten to use a ruffler foot before this. No more sewing a long stitch and pulling to create my ruffle – the machine does it for me! I’ve been experimenting with the embroidery foot. They’re all awesome.

    7. The ONLY problem I’ve had with the machine is this: When I have the needle in the setting to end “down”, and I stop and need to remove my fabric, and I turn the wheel to move the needle, the thread gets too tight (upper thread) and breaks as I pull my fabric out. I’ve found that the simple solution is to turn the need to the “up” position, do a quick backstitch, and the thread pulls with no problem.

    8. I’ve had zero problems with the bobbin so far. It is super easy to load. It hasn’t jammed (which my old machine did all the stinking time!). And, while the plastic cover over the bobbin compartment originally concerned me because of durability questions, I’m really liking being able to see how much bobbin thread I have left. In my old, front loading bobbin machine, I was always surprised to run out of bobbin thread….often after having sewn a very long time without it (a big pain). Now I can keep an easy eye on it without having to unthread it.

    So that’s it. I love this machine. If you can afford a much more expensive machine, like $500+, then get it. But if you’re looking in the $190-$300 range, this one seems to be one of the best. And if you’re just starting sewing, skip the $100 machines and just go straight for this model. It’s affordable, and makes sewing seem easier because the machine just does what it should.

    I cannot say enough about this machine, it is one of the best ones I have ever used, I have a $1000 Necchi and this one blows that one to bits. It is so smooth and Singer customer service, the best out there. They have almost every Singer sewing machine manual on their website available for a free download. Only Brother is another one to do that. I will not consider another brand because of their great staff. Do not hesitate to buy a Singer and this particular model is just wonderful. If, this is a comeback product for Singer, they are on the right track because sewing is coming back big time. People are sick of cheap clothes, and want quality. You can make your own custom outfits in no time with the new patterns out there. Give it a try!!!!!! You will not be sorry.
    I am only disappointed that it does not have a lever to lower the feed dogs, you get a plastic plate to cover them, which can jump. I fixed that by using painters tape to hold it down and then it does not jump. Always make sure that you use the right size needle, ie. denim should be at least a #14 or #16, plus use a product called hump jumper or a jean a ma jig that lets you sew right over a heavy seam flawlessly. I also use a Brother SA 176 J foot that has a button on the side to hold the foot flat and it will do the same thing for heavy seams. It is a snap on foot and works fine with the Singer, most snap ons are universal. I have taught sewing for over 20 years, been sewing for over 50 years and am always looking for tools to make things easier.

    My First Machine, December 27, 2011

    I researched for a long time before making my decision, learning about drop-in bobbins and zipper foots… but of all the reviews I read none of them told me the things I needed to read as a first-time buyer. I’ll try my best to do that here:

    1. Set up is simple straight out of the box, you plug in the power and the pedal. You turn on the power. Done… Threading time.

    2. The instruction manual has three different languages all on the same page, so threading your machine and learning its functions the first time will be a little frustrating. I really suggest watching the included DVD, even though it’s not model specific, it does provide a lot of helpful information.

    3. The variable speed has proven to be very useful as a first time sewer. I was afraid of pressing the pedal and having the fabric zoom uncontrollably through my inexperienced fingers. However, the lowest speed allows you time to see and understand how the fabric moves through the machine.

    4. My husband hovered over my shoulder during my research days incessantly questioning whether this or that model would handle denim. I have not had a chance to sew actual denim but the machine handled 6 layers of cotton fabric – it groaned and struggled slightly but soldiered through it. I feel confident saying that with the proper needle, this machine would handle it fine.

    5. The throat plate does have measurements engraved on it so you can line up your fabric for the seam allowance, however, I wish the bobbin cover also had the markings on it. I have to crane forward to see the measurements and my unfamiliar hands end up pulling the fabric sideways.

    6. Automatic threader… ingenious! I didn’t read my instruction manually thoroughly the first time (too excited!) and I was trying to thread the needle manually. Stop! Auto-thread! 🙂

    All-in-all, coming from someone who had never sewn anything a day in her life and made an apron and a pillow within hours of getting the machine; this is perfection! A wonderful first-time machine and I doubt there will be many occasions where I’d need anything more substantial. I am very, very happy with this purchase!
