Good Value for the Money The conventional wisdom in buying sewing machines (among people who sew a lot) is to spend around $500 minimum. This may mean buying used, because sewing machines can be very pricy. In general, I agree with this philosophy. There are definite advantages to higher end machines. That said, this decidedly lower end machine performed quite a bit beyond my expectations.The most important thing for a sewing machine to do is to hold its tension. Bad tension control of your thread means bad stitches and endless frustration. I’ve heard horror stories about poor tension on low end machines. This machine has very good tension. The motor growls a little before starting when you depress the foot pedal. Once you get going, it is pretty easy to control the speed, which is important too, for precision.The straight stitching is very nice. Straight stitching is, by far, the thing you will do most on a sewing machine, whether you are doing garments or quilts and crafts…

I’ve used Singer machines for 50 years BUT Spanish only instruction manual – you are kidding me! I have been sewing for about 50+ years. I started on my grandmother’s Singer treadle machine. When I got a little older, I used my other grandmother’s electric Singer machine (big time for those days). Over the years I’ve always had Singer machines. I’ve made my own clothes, clothes for my boys. I’ve quilted, made gifts.Nowadays I don’t sew as much. I use the machine for mending and some special projects but I’ll have twin grandbabies soon and wanted to start making a few things for them.So, since the tension on my old machine didn’t work right, I got a new Singer 2259 Machine. I get the new machine, open the shipping box (packed very well by the way) and what do I find? An instruction manual ALL in Spanish. Not in English AND Spanish but all Spanish. I am not a happy camper. I don’t care that I’ve sewed for 50 years. Every machine is a little different plus it’s been a few years since I’ve done much sewing except for mending and I want a manual I…

A Good Replacement I found the Singer 2259 Tradition 20-Stitch Sewing Machine to be all that I really need.First off, I am not an ambitious sewer. Actually, my sewing is concentrated to making crafts like doll clothes for my daughter, basic cloth purses and simple clothing modifications (like turning pants to skirts).I have an old, second-hand Brother that gets jammed so much that I can no longer tolerate it.Although the Singer is roughly the same size with a similar set-up, it is definitely a better machine for me.Pros.The bright white outer shell is hard and durable enough, but decidedly lighter in weight than my grungy-creme beast. It is not a burden to pull this one out of the closet, and once it’s out, it’s not an embarrassment if company should come over unexpectedly.Singer is not re-inventing the wheel. I appreciate that I can start sewing without having to get re-acclimated to an altogether new design.The foot…
