Finally Enjoying This Machine

Pros:
Good Value, Easy To Use, High Quality, Versatile

Although I purchased this in 2008, I didn't start using it until 2013. I don't know why I waited, as it truly is an easy machine to use. Although there are a lot of stitches and functions, there aren't too many to make me overwhelmed. I've been taking weekly sewing classes since summer 2013 and I'm even working on my first quilt, a TShirt quilt that is 82 x 90 and this machine handles it all. Sometimes I get a little frustrated at tension issues, but I'm sure it is more about me than about the machine.

Easy To Use
Cons:
Poor Quality, Complicated

worked great for one garment and then got very noisy, no auto speed control, a reverse option that you need to keep depressed in order for it to work. the lettering is legible. love the auto tension should come with more presser feet

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

I've been enjoying my machine since I've gotten it (not long ago). I like the many computerized. stitches it has and that I'm able to change to a different stitch right in the middle of a project, if I want, with no hesitation. It's a really great machine.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

This is a high-quality machine, that is easy to use. While there are a large number of complex features, the machine is well-designed to allow access to the basic features straightaway, and keeps the complexity only for those occasions when you want to use it.

This is a straight-forward enough machine that a beginner will have no trouble getting started, but robust and full of enough features that at least a mid-level person as myself has all the features needed.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, If You Get Stuck And Can't Figure Out How To Get Back To Straight Stitching You Just Turn It Off And On And You're Set To Go. , It Has A Surge Protector Feature On It But Highly Rcommended To Unplug Machine From Wall When Not Using It And Plug Into A Surge Protector
Cons:
It's Hard When You First Get It To Learn About All The Stitches So You Have To Read The Book And Just Really Try Them All Out And Practice Changing The Various Stitches, But Once You Learn It, It Is Very Easy.

Love the Confidence sewing/quilting electronic machine. It easily goes from thick to thin material with no problems. The decorative stitches are very consistent and even. The tension is the best I've found on any Singer that I've had. It changes easily with the buttons from one pattern to another. I would highly recommend this machine even to an expert sewer as it does everything you want. It works great for quilting also. Really love this machine and the price was very reasonable. K-Mart has a special deal where the dealer came in and sold 3 different machines, was very informative, demonstrated all 3 machines, answered every question and w/o a doubt really knew his sewing machines. Their service is great, they are located in Florida and have a BBB rating that is great also. It came with extra attachments not mentioned on the box and there were extras in the box also. The DVD was nice to learn how to use machine and set it up. Stil haven't conquered the needle threader but have to review the DVD. It has 2 cutters on the machine, very easy to thread and wind bobbins and has J bobbins which are easy to find anywhere that are Singer bobbins. I am very happy with the price, quality and features of this machine!!!
