The Singer ONE™ is a very unique sewing machine. Even looking at it you can see that it's special. It uses many of the fantastic new innovative features the Singer company have spawned over its 160 years of manufacturing sewing machines.
This model takes it's styling inspiration from the past, in fact about 70 years ago, when the only Singer sewing machine that was produced was painted black with gold floral decals. This time Singer have gone a step further with the new Singer ONE™ having an all white appearance with silver decals.
From first view it looks tremendous, but what lies beneath its outer unique appearance, is a sewing machine packed with the most up-to date technology. For example, gone is the old fashioned threading. The Singer ONE™ sewing machine uses a new threading system called SwiftSmart. It makes for real simple threading! In fact one handed threading is possible right down to even threading the needle and inserting the bobbin. When threading the top, there is now no need to wrap the thread down-up-down like other sewing machines. The thread path is straight from the thread spool forward. Pull the thread down and straight through the eye of the needle.
New type of needle threader is implemented. Also the Drop & Sew system cuts the bobbin thread end perfectly after the bobbin is loaded so that sewing can begin. No more having to rotate the hand wheel 360 degrees before even a stitch has been sewn.
We also like the Automatic setting on the top tension. Once on the "auto" setting the Singer ONE™ is ready to sew 90% of any type of fabric.
It uses an LED light to brighten up the needle and foot area. The extension bed can be removed to allow the sewing of tubular items on the machines sleeve arm.
Each one of the 24 stitches can be directly selected from the touch panel which will light up when selected. Every stitch is pre-programmed to be able to take best advantage of the fabrics being sewn; however a stitch or pattern can be overridden by using the key to the +/- keys next to the LCD screen. The screen will also display the stitch length or width in mm depending on your desired pattern customisation. 7mm wide for satin and decorative stitches.
It's not as slow as the old hand operated vintage machine from which the Singer ONE™ was inspired by. The ONE™ will sew up-to 750 spm. It does use the electronic foot speed controller, so every stitch even when sewing extremely slowly, will get full motor power.
Seams or top stitching can be sewn very precisely thanks to the 13 needle positions side to side adjustment.
Another nice feature that will not become apparent until the machine is actually being used is the cutter that cuts the bobbin thread, as previously mentioned. There is also another thread end cutter that is located on the lower side cover edge. Why I like this is because once you have sewn a 4" quilt square, for example, one would run the stitching right to the very edge of the fabric, press the reverse button for 2 or 3 stitches to lock and tie-off the seam. Now the clever bit, raise the foot and pull the quilt block backwards and round the side (which is what one would normally do) but instead of reaching for the scissors to snip the thread ends, simply use the manual cutter on the side cover. It will trim off the excess threads close to the fabric and also hold the needle and bobbin thread ends in place ready to start sewing again. Not a mind shattering development, but it will save lots of time and hassle reaching for the scissors.!
I feel sure anyone would be very happy with the Singer ONE™ as it will give many happy hours of stitching, just like the original machine it is inspired by.
Great looking attractive machine. It uses new type of threading system, which works very well. Runs quietly. Large sewing surface. Fairly light and easy to move.
