QC missing!

"I just unpacked this sewing machine enthusiastically to start sewing again! I followed the set-up procedures, but found the machine to be defective in the programmed logic! When I tried to wind the bobbin, the needle would not get disengaged and would travel up and down! After 20 attempts to get through the Singer customer support busy line, and a 30 minute hold to get to a representative, she was helpful on the phone and confirmed the machine needed to be returned or repaired! I appreciated the ability to return the machine (have not done it yet), but I found the lack of Quality Control at Singer to detect this obvious problem before shipping unacceptable. I will still try to buy a replacement of the same model, but I hope that once I get a machine that is not defective, I would be satisfied! Stay tuned..."

Great Value, Performance

Pros: lightweight, quiet motor, smooth feed, easy threading bobbin winding, lots of features, lots of accessories, handles delicate fabric very well
Cons: light is dim
Model Number: 8780
"I am an advanced seamstress. I chose this machine to replace my White.
I am very happy with my choice. I am making a wedding dress of silk. I switched to using the Singer to finish the dress and it is amazing how much better the Singer Curvy handles this delicate fabric.
After receiving the Singer, I unpacked, inspected, wiped down and set up to begin sewing. From the first hum of the quiet motor and needle/thread through gossamer, I knew I would be very happy I chose this machine.
The price tag is close to half the price of other retailers. So, get one before they're gone!
After I use more of the features, embroidery, buttonholes, etc, I'll report back."

Highly reccomend

Pros: ease of use, price
"I have never so much as touched a sewing machine in my life. I've been looking for a machine that would not be so complicated that I couldn't use, yet have enough features to keep me going as I get more acquainted with sewing. This product was recommended when I was inquiring about machines at a sewing store, but was priced at nearly twice as much. I just received today and within 2 hours from opening the box I have not only set up the machine, but mended some of my husbands shirts and made a bird cage skirt.
I could not be any happier with the purchase. Great step by step instructions. Super easy to thread the bobbin and needle."

Wonderful sewing machine

Model Number: 8780
"I recently purchased this sewing machine and just love it. The needle threader is easy, quiet, and quick. The bobbin winder is also easy to use. I am a beginner to intermediate sewer, and have enjoyed using this machine. The built in stitches are a plus. Singer quickly shipped me the extra accessories that were supposed to come in the box, but did not. I have been completely satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it."

Love it!

Pros: decorative stitches, quiet, sturdy - no rocking when sewing fast
Cons: slight delay in start/stop sewing
Model Number: 8780
"I have been looking for a new machine for several months and this was my 4th machine to try. It's a keeper! I was a little overwhelmed when I unpacked it and looked at all the options. About 30 minutes later, I had learned the basics and now (a week later) I have a good feel for what it can do. I can see myself using this machine for many years to come."

Great all around machine

Pros: needle up/down stop position, auto thread, see-through bobin case
Cons: pause between stop/start of sewing
Model Number: 8780
"Bought this while there was a manufacturer's rebate of $100. It was an absolute bargain. Have only had the machine a few days and absolutely love it. The stitch patterns are terrific. The block alphabet is fine. It's a nice, solid, fairly quiet sewing machine."
