Singer 8280 Sewing Machine 4.8 5 45 45
Singer 8280 Sewing Machine I purchased the Singer 8280 to replace my 50 year old Singer. I was pleasantly surprised how easy I found it to get started, how light and clean looking it is. I have done more sewing since I purchased it than I had done in many years due to how easy it is to use. I love it and would recommend it to others. 10 July 2014
Excelent replacement! I bought this to replace a trusty friend (my Singer sewing machine of 45 years!). Am extremely pleased with this 8280 - it is simple to use and just what I need now that I sew less then in previous years. 10 July 2014
Singer 8280 Sewing Machine Love my Singer 8280 Sewing Machine - not over-complicated which I like and a lot of the threading-up instructions are quite easy and like my old fashioned machine. Good machine for a starter. 03 June 2014
To use when I retire I was lucky enough to have enough birthday money to buy this sewing machine and had been lucky that a friend, who is a sewing bee ,advised me that this was the one suitable for me. I hope to spend many happy retirement hours whirring away ! 03 June 2014
Easy to use Really great sewing machine suitable for all types of material easy to follow instruction recommend this product as so easy to use 29 April 2014
Recommend to everyone So simple and easy to use not a lot of difference to my mothers older one 09 April 2014
Excellent value I bought this as a second sewing machine - my 1980's singer machine stays at my sewing class so I wanted one to keep set up at home. I have done a few things with it including different fabrics, layers, different stitches etc and it has coped well with everything. It is an excellent machine and so easy to use. Threading is very similar to the old style singer. I have taken off a star for the bobbin for the lower thread...it's excellent when it is working, but on the one occasion I got a problem (the upper thread or a loose thread got looped into the bobbin casing somehow) it was tricky to get into the bobbin casing. This seems to be the way many machines are set up now as others in my sewing class have had similar problems with theirs (other makes, not singer). Snag with thread did n't ruin my project fabric as the machine stopped. Overall excellent value for money. 04 January 2014
