    Personally speaking, I wouldn't buy a NEW Singer, OLD yes.

    I bought a low end, non-computerized Singer about 15 years ago and although I have been happy with it, I would not buy a Singer again. I have heard so many negative things about the newer Singers that I think it is a risk. I would probably buy a Brother. I haven't heard anything negative about Brother and they are affordable for me. I had a older Brother I got at the thrift store and it sewed well for years. I should have kept it.

    At HSN you can buy and sew on the machine for 30 days and decide if you want to keep it or not. There is no risk. If you don't like it send it back. Save the box and all packing material. I can only review my older Singer Quantum. It's been a great machine and I don't baby it at all. It's gone through several power surges and still the computer screen pops right back up. Singer for some reason makes two qualities of the same machine. One for lower price and one for top of the line. Same with their needles. The needles sold in the red and white package are top quality the Singer needles sold in the yellow/black package are lower quality. Many times you'll see Singer products being sold for a very high price when you know you seen them lots cheaper elsewhere. It's the different quality. Makes no sense to me at all.

    Thats true but it costs about $45 00 to return it.

    I guess I'll find out soon enough how good it is. I ordered one last night. If it's as good as they say it is I'll have a wonderful machine. If it doesn't live up to my standards then I will be out shipping cost because I will send it back in a flash if it doesn't do what I want it to. I'll keep you posted when it gets here. Janice

    Good luck! I've decided to start out with less expensive and simpler model. Joann Fabrics is having a sale on the Brother XL2610 machine for $99. I figure that might be a little less daunting. Please report back on the Singer model though. I'd love to hear from a non salesperson!

    I ordered it as today's special and have enjoyed learning how to use it, no problems so far. This is my first computerized machine so I don't have another one to compare it to. Diggin' all the different stitches.
