Question

Is this machine good to sew a quilt together ?

asked 6 months ago

Answers
answer 1
Yes any machine that has a built-in straight stitch can be sued to sew a quilt. To piece the quilt, you will most likely need a 1/4 inch foot and to assemble the layers, we recommend an Even Feed (walking) foot.

No. They are perfectly user friendly. Mechanical machines are simpler than the computerized ones. You can take one look at the front of the machine and know what your machine is going to do. You have more control of the stitch settings, too, because you're not limited to .5mm increments, and this one has width adjustment as well as length. You can adjust the pressure on the foot and lower the feed dogs. Drop-in bobbins are easy to load and your thread supply is always visible. The threading is easy. Just remember to use the right bobbin (clear plastic class 15), the right needle for the fabric and size thread you are using, and to learn how to correctly thread the machine. The upper thread guide that leads to the thread tension discs has a "pretension spring" on it (that is a new part, at least to me). Don't miss it! The ones who have the most difficulty are inexperienced with sewing machines and new to sewing in general. It's not that the machines are difficult, it's that they probably would learn to use the machine better if at first they worked with a more experienced person to show them how. These folks end up putting the bobbins in backwards or miss threading steps which causes all sorts of problems which are not the machine's fault. Videos are nice to a certain point, but you can't ask questions of a video and this machine doesn't come with one.

The Classic 44S machine I have needed a very minor adjustment to a part on the needleplate, but that was an easy fix and now it runs very smoothly, and that probably was just a fluke and not the norm.

I believe every one has a right to their opinion; this singer is however user friendly as far as I and family members are concerned;--you know sometimes we are used to another product that was seasoned with time -likewise with this product- you just need to feel your way through

Jo,
The 44S is a basic, mechanical machine. This machine is easy to use. It does have a powerful motor and it sews at a higher speed then a 'regular' sewing machine so that may intimidate some at first.
Stitch selection is easy with just a turn of the dial, there is a 1-step buttonhole, and threading is simple with the automatic needle threader.
If you have questions or concerns about the use of the machine once you have it home Singer’s Consumer Affairs Dept. is there to help at 1800-4SINGER (1800-474-6437), M-F, 8:00 – 4:00 CST or email at talktous@svpworldwide.com.

If you mean "mend" denim - the Singer Heavy Duty/Classic is the perfect home machine to use when working with denim. With the stronger motor and smooth sewing surface, the leather/fabric will feed smoothly. Of course, you still need to remember the guidelines when working with denim: use the correct size needle and thread, watch speed when approching multi-layer sections and other guidelines for handling denim.

Question

Will this machine fit into an older Singer sewing cabinet?

answer 1
I haven't a sewing cabinet. I use a five foot office work table that I have drilled holes into for the cord.
However, I see no reason why this would not fit into a cabinet.
I have finally begun to use the machine though threading is so different than what I had been doing most my life I still have not mastered it myself. I sewed until something made the thread broke; then I was 'dead in the water;' humiliating.
It is very difficult to thread and the automatic threading is for the needle itself, and useless. The instructions say to thread from the back--the eye-hole faces you--but this is very difficult. It worked for my friend to thread from the front.

It really depends on your cabinet.
The Classic does have a mounting bracket.
Here are instructions on how to secure your machine to a cabinet.

If you turn the machine over, you will see 2 mounting brackets in the center base of the machine; these are screw openings where the mounting bolts will fit. You will need to purchase 2 mounting screws. These mounting screws will fit in the openings located in the base of the machine and then will attach to the base of your cabinet. You can purchase the mounting screws from one of the following locations. The part number is 969074.
Please contact your local Singer Sewing Specialty Retailer. To find a location near you go to our website at www.singerco.com and click on “Where to Buy” and then enter your zip code.
If you have already contacted a local dealer, one of the following Singer Service Centers may be able to help you. All offer mail order service. If you give them a call, they can provide pricing, shipping costs and product availability.

Question

Is this machine too much for a very very beginner?

I'm 47 years old and just now getting the urge to learn to sew (simple summer dresses). So, I'm looking for a machine I can handle, that's easy to use, and I can grow with. I want this to be my first and only machine. Would this machine be too advanced for me????

The 44S Classic could be great for a beginner. It has all the basic stitches that makes up 95% of all sewing time. The top drop-in bobbin is easy to use. An automatic 1-step buttonhole will be great for a beginner and experianced sewing. A Quick-Start Guide will introduce you to your machine and be a useful tool if you need a reminder on how to do something in the future.
The only caution - it does have a strong motor and can sew faster then the machines you might have used back in high school. But, if this is the first machine you have ever owned & used on a regular basis, you should have no problem with it. You will get used to the speed and strength quickly.
