      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      simple, made for the job

      I love being able to use a simple light sewing machine. I dont have alot of room in my house so when I want to use my sewing maching I actually have to get it out to use it then when I'm done I have to pack it up again so it makes such a difference to have a light one that can be stored on the top shelf of the cuboard. This sewing machine is incredible easy to use and a credit to the singer brand name. Singer is something you can trust I have used serveral machines made by singer and they are brilliant. The simple features, different stiches are easy to use. As i is light it can sort of wobble when you use it so it has to be used on a really steady stable table so that t doesn't move as you work. Other than that its a really fantastic sewing machine!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Look for a deal, and if you can find one, don't hesitate to get this machine.

      This is a pretty good machine. It gets the job done and has enough settings and options to satisfy most part-time tailors. I wouldn't reccomend it for use in a shop, but if you're making or altering clothes out of your home, it works well enough.

      I picked up one for much cheaper than the listed price over in the states. I am not great at sewing and it's been an interesting learning experience, and so far, I haven't had any real problems with this machine that I wouldn't have with any other.

      So if the price is right, this is a good machine. At 200 pounds, though, you might be better off looking elsewhere. As I said, I got mine for about 35 pounds and was VERY happy with it, so it's all relative I guess.

      It's packaged with an instructional DVD and enough supplies to get you started right away, so it's good for first timers, too.
