    this is my sewing machine, i tried to copy it and paste but i will give you the link instead.
    http://www.e-magin.se/v5/viewer/file...e=Europris+u14:+V%C5R+-+hos+Europris&gYear=2009&gUserID=0&gPaperID=25585&gAvailWidth=1014&gAvailHeight=733&gInitPage=1&gHotspot=0

    hopefully you will see it, it is called Singer tradition but i cant see any number on it and i know its a easy plane machine but all i can afford at this time; when i have more experiance and will know i m truly hooked i will save for a more advanced one , well possibly.

    I know you can buy add ons so the machine will be better, i m thinking of gliding sewing foot if that is what its called,lol twin needles etc
    Also i see i can get twin needles.
    It would be a great help if you can help me find out what extras i can get for this machine for quilting purposes and so on.


    It says it has 10 standard and decor stitching (does that mean it got20 all together or ?? )
    variable stitch lenght
    snap on feet
    free arm
    automatic something with theads etc it what it says in the add.
    I havent tried it yet you see :oops:

    I pulled up an advertising paper when I opened what you posted...but, did find this on my own at: http://www.target.com/Singer-Portabl...om&LNM=Primary

    Most 'brands' are interchangeable w/the presser feet with their own machine brands. FInd where you can buy singer presser feet..and try one-I'm sure it will work:)It is a cute machine! Let us know how it works out for you:)I bet some great sewing soon! Skeat

    Why do you want to sew with a twin needle? I have never worked with twin needles - never had a need to. I think they are mainly for decorative topstitching.

    Do you mean a walking foot or even-feed foot? You should have no trouble finding one of those to fit your machine.

    If you click the ad I posted from Target, it list it w/the same name as you said plus the number 2250 after it....you can search your machine on the singer site by the ID number on it...:)

    i dont know if i need on but it looks nice of what i have seen done with it,

    walking foot and even feed foot i m not sure what is, i have only ever used the ones that or on the machine,

    and with foot do you mean the foot like in pedal or where u have the sewing needle in.

    sorry if you find my questions silly but i am a newbie and this is my 2nd language and i m not used with sewing terms in english/american.

    Foot usually means the one by the needle. (Foot pedal would be the other one.)

    A "walking foot" or "even-feed foot" is a special foot you buy for the machine. The "feed dogs" are the moving teeth that move fabric through the machine. A walking foot feeds the fabric from above too, which makes both layers of fabric move together more evenly. A walking foot is very helpful for certain sewing tasks.

    A twin needle is used mostly for decorative top-stitching. It is not used much for quilting. It is used mostly to stitch parallel straight lines on clothing hems.

    It is better to buy a good used sewing machine than a cheap new one. If the one that came up in the picture is your machine, I think you may become frustrated with it.

    i only know its called singer tradition and i m sure it will be ok if not i can always use my mums old one.
    However i wanted to have one at my place so i didnt have to go to mums all the time for sewing.

    I didnt have another option if i wanted a sweing machine to say it frankly, it was the most reasnoble priced i could find with a well known brand, like singer and Janome which is the most used and known here in Norway.
    If i had more money i would have bought a little more advanced or better one , i dont belive always the price has so much to say about the quality and this case it was this one i could afford on my tiny disability benefit.

    Singer's used to be good machines, and a few of the more expensive machines may be decent machines, but I would run away from the cheap ones and even the medium priced ones. My personal opinion.
