|What hese61 likes about this machine|
Wow, this machine is my very first Singer and my first computerised sewing machine. It has some good qualities: easy to thread, the machine is bigger than my Bernina 1031 but lighter in weight. It has lots of stitches both utility and decorative stitches, seven buttonholes and alphabets. Last but not least this machine is very beautiful with rounded edges. This machine has a lot of features at low price, but...
What hese61 does not like about this machine
I had high hopes, maybe too high, long sigh. Firstly, presser feet what a joke; flimsy and cheaply made. This machine is noisy (my Bernina just purrs). I mean really noisy. Three led-lights but they are too dim. I don't like drop-in bobbin (this is my personal opinion not a fault). Plastic everywhere; plastic parts inside and plastic outside.
Biggest minus comes here; I tried different fabrics from light fabrics to thick denim and knitted fabrics. I was very disappointed with the quality of the stitches, even a straight stitch was not a straight.
Instruction manual is horrible to read, four languages (Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish)
The conclusion; this machine is not a lemon. It's todays Singer-quality. This machine was my first and last Singer.
