There are both good and bad reviews of this machine, but all the issues people have revolve around the thread tension of the bobbin. If you are new to sewing, the tension is a bit of a challenge sometimes. I would suggest reading the manual and asking an experienced seamstress how the tension is supposed to feel before giving up. Having used this Singer Simple sewing machine with no problems I think it might just be people who are not used to dealing with thread tension. Singer sewing machines are made with metal, not plastic, so they are a little heavier than some of the others but metal lasts longer. 23 stitches is enough variety that you will never need another sewing machine. This Singer Simple Sewing Machine will last you! I think it’s one of the best beginning sewing machines.
