Questions & Answers for Singer Singer Simple 23-Stitch Sewing Machine 2263

Question

Stitching speed

Is this one of those machines that goes 0 to 100 and would be very difficult for a 7 year old to maintain a slow speed? I would like the Singer name but Michly has a slow/fast speed so might be better for a young child.

This is a slow machine compared to alot out there. However, the bobbin is difficult to thread. It is not a drop in like Brother sewing machines have. Also the tread winder sits on its side, and just makes it difficult to tell if the thread is coming out the right way. Not often do I dislike a product as much as I disliked this. I returned it and purchased a Brother

I haven't used the "hemming" feature, but have hemmed jeans by simple straight stitch. Trick is to lift the sewing "thingie" where the needle is to go over the "hump" at the thick part of the hem and then lower it again for straight stitching the rest of the hem.

Question

Does this machine come with an instructional video? Referring to singer model 2263

Also, what is the most important feature to consider before I purchase one. It sounds really good and since I have not sewn anything since home economics class over 30 years ago, this sounds like an ideal machine to have.

It would be ideal for you :) i only learned to sew in home ec even longer ago than you Although I have been designing and making Teddy Bears for the last couple of years, I just usually want it to go forward and backward, keep the tension for both threads reliably constant, and be a dependable workhorse, and this machine fits the bill. It is a GREAT bargain for this price, and right now you can get it with a hard case thrown in for free, regularly $22+

A basic zigzag stitch/straight stitch presser foot is available at Joann's for about five dollars (off brand; found mine on an end cap right behind the fabric cutting station.) You can check your local wal-mart/target/kmart --just look for the basic straight/zigzag presser foot, snap on, low shank.

The blue switch on the front of the body of the machine is probably pushed down. Push it back up again. If you can't, then it needs servicing.

Try using something that'll give you some leverage like grip the screw with a pair of pliers to give you more oomph when turning. You can try steadying the needle by sticking it in a potato or something.

I haven't tried it on this one, but my old basic Singer would handle lighter weight vinyl with a heavy duty needle. Just go slow, at least to begin with, so you don't break the needle. Good luck!
