    I brought this machine about 3 years ago. I had been wanting a machine for years and finally bit the bullet and decided I wanted to buy the best machine that I could afford. When I first got it I was over the moon, it stitched like a dream, then disaster struck. I couldn't get it to stitch properly for love nor money. I finally gave up and the machine was relegated to the spare bedroom. I didn't dare tell the other half. Then about 18 months ago I was flicking through the TV channels and saw a lady from Singer demonstrating new machines. She was talking about the common problems people have when they call the Singer help line. I listened with interest only to find out that most stitch problems were caused by the threading of the machine, and sometimes the use of poor quality cotton. I was a little sceptical, but I brought some good quality cotton, replaced the cotton in the bobbin and re-threaded the machine and since that day my machine has worked like a dream. It has coped easily with making quilts, bags, hemming curtains, altering a dress and taking up trousers. I now wouldn't be without it. Despite my unhappy start, I would be more than happy to recommend this machine and the words of wisdom from the lovely Sue at Singers helpline!

    The singer one plus sewing machine is a dream. It is a lovely machine to look at well as use. Easy to use if a beginner, a wonderful machine to upgrade too. It has so many stitch patterns that one is spoilt for choice. I would recommend this singer to anyone who is thinking of purchasing a machine with lots of different types of stitch patterns for different types of projects. Its very useful to have the start/stop button and the speed control, it makes ease of doing difficult things like circles, as you can have the machine going as fast or as slow as you want to go. It is a very good price for all the features it has and competitive to other machines out there on the market. I'm thrilled with my purchase and love it to bits, I'm so glad I bought it and I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks so highly of this singer one plus sewing machine.

    A great machine, easy to set up, does everything it says. The automatic needle threader took a few tries to get used to, but it really does work - very helpful for someone whose eyesight isn't what it was! After a few bits of test stitching I used it to sew lining fabric, which is usually tricky, but no trouble at all with this machine - so I'm confident it'll do what I need it to.

    As other people have said, the delivery service is really good too. I ordered this machine during a bank holiday weekend. The shipment was confirmed at lunchtime on Tuesday and it arrived at lunchtime on Wednesday, with follow-up emails in between to let me know when it was coming. Thanks for excellent service!

    This machine appears to be a good machine. However, I find the manual very poor and I had to phone the Singer help line on one occasion as there was no mention in the manual on how to move the needle to the right. I felt a little better after speaking to the very helpful young lady at Singer, as she also didn't at first know how to achieve what I was seeking. She phoned me back after she had got one of the machines in front of her and talked me through what I was seeking. I cannot find fault with the help line at Singer or the machine, but I wish I hadn't purchased this machine. I'm a Pfaff and Brother devotee, but felt I wanted to try a Singer, but it is not for me.

    I loaned my old machine(Toyota) to a friend and didn't have the heart to ask for it back as she uses it so much! I am not an expert but this machine seems great. A really good price, fast delivery and I have just tried it out. It seems straightforward and is quiet.
