    What a great sewing machine! Sews smoothly and quietly, and is a pleasure to use. The drop-in bobbin is wonderful, especially for someone like me with arthritic fingers. I highly recommend it.

    Really enjoying using the Singer Modern Quilter 8500Q. The extra space to the right of the needle and the extra large table are great for my quilting. I also like the automatic cutting function and the knee operated presser foot lifter, very convenient when both hands are on the fabric. The reason I only gave 4 stars is that it is very fiddly trying to remove the screw and replace it when attaching the walking foot and there is nothing to hold the large 'table in position so it slides away from the machine with the weight of the quilt. I expect this will not be a problem with something smaller or lighter weight.

    Am delighted with my new Singer machine. Easy to use and the Instruction manual is easy to follow. One comment, if you are new to using sewing machines you would not know where to look for the feed dog drop switch !!! nothing in the manual to tell you how to romove accessory box !! But all in all a great machine

    I bought this machine out of desperation, trying to quilt a large single bed quilt on a standard machine. The price is excellent and while it is still awkward rotating such a bulk of fabric, it is now possible. I really like the top loading bobbin, the automatic thread cutter and being able to adjust the sewing speed although you do have to be careful not to knock the slide speed adjuster as it moves very easily. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because the larger quilting table while excellent on size,does not lock onto the machine and keeps coming away. Possibly this is only a problem with very bulky heavier items. Also it is very fiddly removing the screw to replace the normal presser foot with the walking foot. I'm looking forwards to many adventures exploring the many options available on this machine, once I've finished the quilt.

    I used my machine for the first time today - it was so easy to use. I took up a pair of jeans - no problem - it went through the material so smoothly. I would highly recommend the 4423.

    Yesterday 30/3/19 took delivery of my new Singer confidence 7463. The delivery was on time, within the hour stated in the text and email. The machine it was replacing, was the first thing I brought when I started work, almost 40 years ago. It has served me well, but needed replacing. I am so pleased that I took the plunge. The confidence 7463 is so quiet and runs very smoothly. I too struggled with the automatic needle threader. But with a few tries, I had it sorted. I've been busy and made a new dust cover for it. You get do get a cover with the machine , but its flimsy and won't last long. Just a thought, there is no mention on how to change the bulb, in the manual, should it fail. I am more than pleased with the service and the machine. I know I'll have many hours of happy sewing.

    My Mum started off with a Singer treadle machine. This is the third Singer in the home. I haven’t used it a lot yet but it sews a neat straight stitch. It has all the features you could want and is light enough to carry with one hand. Only problem I had was inserting the bobbin into the machine but I found a very helpful video on the Singer site. But how to raise the bobbin thread? You have to go from page 10 to page 15. In the manual. A fab. small machine. Very pleased so far.
