Q & As

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dreadful Machine Fiddly with poor and minimal instructions. Finally got machine up and running and did one longish line of straight stitching. Good; Then tried to do zig zag line alongside original line. Machine constantly jammed and lots of tangles underneath. Tried several times to sort out. NO Joy. So re-tried straight la basic line of stitching again. No, won't do even this now !! I wish I hadn't given my old machine away - although heavier and more cumbersome - at least it worked !! Will phone customer services tomorrow, but if they can't help get it working again, I will return it to John Lewis and buy another make. SOOOOO disappointed.. I thought one couldn't go wrong with Singer. 12 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Machine I bought this machine 6 months ago as an absolute beginner when starting a dressmaking evening class. I have been delighted with it. It's very easy to use, thread and maintain. The one-step button hole is great once you've got the nack (heavier fabrics need guiding thru). I'd definitely recommend this product! 26 September 2014
