I order this machine because I sew alot and am very hard on my machines- I've gone through two brothers in the pst two years so i decided to upgrade to a singer. I read the reviews and decided on this model. It was the perfect choice for me. I reccommended it to my friend and she also bought one. we both extreemly happy wiith our choice!!!

I'm very pleased with my new Singer. With the stitch selection being on a little screen and computerized, it's a step up from any of my previous machines, but it wasn't hard to learn how to operate. It sews well, and I'm looking forward to many hours using it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality. Time will tell how it stands up.
The sewing machine sews wonderfully but I was concerned that it was very noisy. This is unusual for a Singer. I wrote to Overstock & they apologized & sent me a replacement machine. Much to my dismay it did the same thing! After listening carefully & investigating I discovered that the cover over the motor was put on incorrectly. I loosened up a screw & adjusted the cover & now it is sewing quietly.
A great machine that does EVERYTHING you could want for sewing. It took me awhile to learn about the stitching possibilities and since a few tries I have found some great stitches for hems and necklines that make things look very professional. This was the best gift my husband has every given me.
This machine is very easy to use, easy to thread and select the perfect stitch. I tried using metallic thread and had no problems, no breaking at all. Monogramming works well, but is very limited which was to be expected. For the price I paid this was a terrific deal.

I am so happy that I purchased this machine. So smooth and quiet. Very easy to use. I think this would even be great for a beginner. I only read a little bit of the manual just to familiarize myself with some of the buttons. I have only tried the straight stitch and a few of the other stitches. It worked great! So far have only used this on denim and cotton (both knits and woven). And I did not even need to adjust the tension. I just left it on auto adjust. Such a difference from this machine and my old one. So far a very nice experience.

Hello dgtjon, the Singer Confidence 7470 Computerized Sewing Machine w/225 Stitches does have a drop feed. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 18, 2014
In straight stitch full out is between 750 - 800 stitches per minute.
The speed then varies, depending what stitch is selected ( decorative stitches the speed automatically slows down).
Thank you for shopping with us!
