I have been sewing on a little Singer that was my high school graduation present from my parents. I have put a lot of miles on it, but wanted something that would do sewing and embriodery. My sister has this same machine, and I had used hers to do a couple of projects, and loved it. There is still so much that I need to learn about it, but it has already made a jean skirt, four monogrammed pillow cases, and an Ohio Star scrap quilt top. Love it.
Now I can stand and sew, or sit at a height comfortable for ME! Somewhat challenging to assemble, but worth it. Plenty of space to support a quilt while it’s being quilted, or to spread out all the components while piecing a quilt. Very sturdy. It’s a great value and is easily customizable for fabric storage. Watch the video, too, to see how it folds away when not in use.
I purchased this sewing machine since it sews and does embroidery. It has a fair price as well. I owned a Futura machine and the laptop used to do embroidery was dropped and the screen damaged. You cannot update the Futura with newer operating systems and Singer offered no fixes. This machine takes a few times to get used too. I did several test embroidery works to get the tension and sewing area correct. The push LED screen is nice as it lets you move the sewing starting point for what you are embroidering. Unfortunately there is only few designs available on the machine. You have to purchase downloads and send them to a laptop or design cards. Both can be expensive and your choices are great with these options if you can afford them. You should have some experience at sewing before using this machine. Once you have used it and tested it, it will work fine. The needle threader works great and makes that step simpler. The only thing it needs is an expanded hoop sewing area. You can purchase a longer hoop but you must move the hoop to continue embroidering as the machine cannot be programmed that you have a longer hoop and more space. The best machine is 5K from Brother. So in general, small embroidering works good and can be done, but larger panels take time as you have to re-hoop the material to the next area, I haven't used the sewing part as I use a Brother machine I'm comfortable with to do general sewing.
This table has really improved the sewing room! Easily adjustable, holds the portable sewing machine in perfect location. Plenty of space to hold material being sewn. Cloth drawers hold attachments and sewing notions close at hand. All in all a great addition to our sewing room!
