The Singer 2263 is made for use in North America if purchased there. The wiring is designed for the 110V home wiring that is used in the US and Canada. Even though the plug style is the same in N. American and the Philippines, the voltage is not and the machine will be damaged if pluged in with out a transformer.
Also, if you take the machine out of the country it will void your warrantee.
It is recommended that if you intend to use a sewing machine in another country, you purchase your machine there.

It comes with a basic needle but something thick like leather might require you to buy a thicker and more sturdy needle meant for things like denim other wise the basic needle meant for light fabrics light cotton may break.

If you plan on mending or sewing denim items, the Singer 2263 will be able to assist you with your project.
Remember that denim needs some special handling. Things like the correct thread type, stitch settings and needle size can help your project sew smoothly. When hemming jeans, it is always advisable (no matter which machine you are using) to be sure you have a heavy duty needle (at least a size 14) and appropriate thread. You should proceed at a safe speed and be sure to watch carefully the area where the side seams meet the new hem.

Question

Model no.2263

I've seen all the bad reviews and this machine seems to be doing all the things that mine that needs to be replaced is doing. I do not understand thread tension and may have mine all messed up. All I really need is straight stitch and zig zag, extra stitches would be good but not necessary. I like the removable arm and most of all the machines automatic thread's. My eyes are bad and that would help so much. Oh a reasonable price and factory warranty is always important. What do I need to look at?

I am not a expert seamstress by any means, but when my Europro was giving me fits with tension I finally bit the bullet and bought this one. I love it! I have had it since April 2013. I use it frequently. I have not had one bit of trouble with it so far. Tension has never given me an issue so far either. I never could get the hang of the needle threader with the other machine but was able to get it on the first try with this Singer. I am not sure why some other have given it bad reviews. I think for the price and for what it does, you can't go wrong. It sews beautifully.

I can not adjust the bobbie tension. I have tried to adjust it by turning the screw on the bobbin and this does nothing. What should I do?

If you haven't done this, try taking the thread coming out of the bobbin case, hold it and give it a little shake. Your bobbin should drop, but very little. If it does that then try a practice sewing run and see if the tension is okay. If the bobbin drops a lot, almost like a yo-yo, then it's way too loose.

answer 2
Usually tightening the screen shown on page 15 of the 2263 manual to the right will tighten bobbin case tension. It's unusual to need to tighten bobbin case tension unless you're using some type of specialty thread or technique.

Over tightening the bobbin tension will cause puckering. It's much better to lower the needle tension.

We hope this helps!

There are tables like you are describing out in the market place but Singer does not offer one for this machine.
You would have to confirm with the manufacture of the particular table you are looking at to confirm if it would fit this machine.
