    Honestly, I love my Singer's old AND new but in my opinion, unless you want it for the collectibility of it, I say it's not worth the price. I have one but don't use it mainly because it doesn't have the needle up/down feature that I use a lot. I'm saving it as a backup machine. For the price they want you could get another machine with more features. I'm a little disappointed in it and I'm a Singer Lover!

    Personally speaking, I wouldn't buy a new Singer, a old one, yes.

    I agree. I purchased mine from HSN and I enjoy using it but I wish it had the needle up/down feature. I am a Singer gal but I prefer my older singers. I have a Brother CS6000i and now this Singer 160 which are computerized machines but neither one of them work quite as well as the old reliable singers.
