Singer 7470 is Great!
 from Texas,  Sep 3, 2009

I have used the Singer Confidence 7470 for about a year, and I couldn't be happier. The only issue I have had not resolved, and this is partly because I have chosen not to move forward with it, is the automatic needle threader. It worked great at first; then something happened to knock it off balance. I contaced Singer, who responded quickly and professionally; and they sent me a whole new threader assembly. The problem still exists, so something else if off kilter. But again, I have not done anything else to try to resolve the issue because it's so insignificent to me. I have had zero issues otherwise. No bobbin issues, no tension issues, no problem using any of the feet. The electronic features are great; they have made my sewing experience enjoyable. I previously used a very low end Singer model to learn to sew on; and this 7470 far surpasses that model. I have made apparel, including heavy fleece robes for my family, with excellent results. It's great for piecing in quilting, and can be used for lightweight quilting and smaller projects. I have used this to make quilted totes and get beautiful results. I made one tote out of upholstery, and this machine performed just fine. I do not think the machine is flimsy at all; it does not bounce at top speed and seems pretty heavy to me. I have never owned an older Singer model; and admittedly, I am looking for one for my most heavy duty projects. But for most general sewing and quilting, I think the 7470 is a great machine.
