Just saw this workhorse on Vermont Country Store site. Does anyone have an experience with it?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
VCS, the folks who think bringing back a heavy iron is an improvement.
"It has the familiar weight and heft that's missing from today's lightweight models "
just what you need to build up your biceps.
I, personally, wouldn't buy a NEW Singer, regardless of it's classification, "professional", "heavy duty", etc. A friend of mine bought one of those excess "heavy duty school machines", it was a piece of junk, was used maybe 5 times about 20 minutes at a time, and just "froze up".
I've never seen this but I have old Singers that are workhorses for much less money.
do the feed dogs drop?
great feedback everyone. Thank you. I actually have an industrial Juki that does a great job on straight stitch, but I still love my Bernina 1530 the most.
If I were to ever buy a Singer, it would be a vintage one.
Be careful and to do not confuse the name professional with industrial. They can call anythng professional. If you want a great singer get a used pre- 70's singer.. they are real work horses, and have a stronger motor. They started to reduce the motor's in the 70's and the over all quality. So many 1950 era machines and earlier are still working, and require less maintinience than the new machines and can handle just about anything.
Yep, that's true, save your money andOriginally Posted by Lori S
Invest it on a Singer version either Featherweight, Treadle, the 300s, 400s or 500s series. These are the best of the best and still going strong.
