    Very pleased with my new Singer. A real bargain! However, there are a couple of points to consider (i) the thread take-up lever barely comes up above the body of the machine, making it a little tricky to thread; and (ii) the spool pin seems to be rather fragile.

    Excellent service. Delivered in less than 24 hours. Machine is quite quiet and am still getting used to it. But love how it threads. Looking forward to many years in of use. My last machine was a singer and I had it for 42 years with only one repair. Would definitely recommend the Confidence. Sue

    have only had it just over a week I love it. Its easy to use, from threading to changing feet. I have not used the embroidery as yet as I do a lot of quilting, I have made a sampler it took me a while as there were lots to do. I am not sure how to use the buttonhole foot yet but I'm sure it will be on youtube. it is bigger than my last singer and a really good shape to hold onto a large piece of material while you are sewing. I recommend the Singer one plus. I had to talk to the staff and they were lovely to talk to, and phoned me back when they found an answer to my problem. I had a good buying experience and would recommend buying from the singer website always. Thank you

    I am extremly happy with my new sewing machine. It's very lightweight, and I did think at first felt a little plasticy but the performance is brilliant. Much better than my thirty year old one. Very quiet and runs lovely and smoothly.

    Though I have only started using the machine, I have found that it is easy to use, a lot quieter than my previous machine and I love the Grey colour. The delivery was very quick. would recommend this purchase

    I've had my 9960 for just over a week now and I am delighted with it. It sews like a dream, is very quiet and looks lovely. There are lots of useful extras including presser feet, bobbins and machine needles. The abundance of different stitches is mind-blowing and I am not finished going through them all yet. The instruction booklet is good and I can also find lots of useful videos online to help me. This machine is far and above the best one I have ever used and for the price appears to do a lot more than other brands, which is another reason I bought it. Overall I would highly recommend the Singer 9960 sewing machine.

    Excellent machine and easy to use. Compact so easy to store and the instruction manual is clear and easy to understand. Delivery was excellent, prompt and efficient. I have already made two pairs of curtains within 10 days of receiving my machine.

    I've just started sewing again after a long absence and was struggling with my old machine and decided to invest in this one and I'm really glad I did. It's superb, very easy to use and I like the fact that you can slow it down as one of my problems was the fact that my old machine used to run away and I couldn't stitch straight! Would recommend this to anyone.

    Just received my new machine, am enjoying getting to know the in's and out's of it . The instruction book is quite good maybe a little short on when to use different sizes of stitches but I will figure this out , on the whole a very compact machine. Many thanks Sheena l.
