As a beginner to the world of sewing I have found this machine very easy to use. I only wanted something basic but find it excellent.
Review by Karen Blake
I am very happy with this machine, its so easy to use and the needle threader is brilliant and I dont have to oil it a job I did not like with my old machine, it runs smoothly and quietly and sewed through three thicknesses of denim easily. Another good feature is the button to do reverse sewing, at the begining and end of the work. The choice of stitches are great Im having fun experimenting with this machine I have many happy hours of sewing in front of me Regards Karen

I was very pleased with your service and ease of delivery, even though my machine was not in stock when I ordered it, it only took a few extra days, delivery was free and on time, a real bonus these days. I love Singer sewing machines, so all in all I am most impressed and very happy!!

The quality of the machine is fab, it has many features that I have never used before and I found them easy to learn as the instruction manual was very explicit. Loads of time saving facilities which have come in very useful when needed to make something to a time limit. I have been encouraged to try things that I have never thought I would.

Having just completed a Soft Furnishing course consisiting of curtains to cushion covers, this machine was absolutely brilliant. It took all thicknesses with ease, ample bobbin quantity and so very easy to master and understand. A foolproof machine, a must for any amateur sewer.

I am really pleased with the machine I have had other overlockers in the past but this one is great to sew with and really easy to thread. The service from ordering it and the delivery could not have been better. a big thanks to all who helped me.. Kitty Ogreid

This was purchased as my first machine as a birthday present, and I find it really easy to use. I too agree that a heavier cover would be better for storage purposes. The 2273 is easy to use and the instruction book is clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this as a first machine to anyone.
Review by Amy
I learned to sew on my moms Singer. This singer is almost identical (functionally) to her Singer which she purchased over 30 years ago (with more features, stitch designs, etc). Singer sewing machines are so logically designed - the mechanics are obviously proven to work if there are so few changes over the span of 30 years! Im very happy with the 2273. Id have given it 5 stars if the picture in the manual showed how to load the bobbin a little bit better.

Review by Carol
I sew for a living and have finally run my old faithful 20+year old singers to death. I wanted a heavy, solid machine with just the basic stitches and the 2273 seems to fit the bill, with a few add ons. I like the disengage switch on the handwheel for bobbin winding, the decorative stretch stitches and the one step button hole function which seems to work best on heavier fabric. My one complaint so far is that the curved shape below the flat bed means the machine tilts if you apply too much pressure feeding fabric through. It will be used constantly and time will tell if it is up to the job. I did phone for advice and must say I am very satisfied with the level of service from this site.
Review by Mrs Heart
My new Singer overlock machine does a fine job on thicker fabrics. It seems to feed the fabric better than my old overlocker. Also im glad i can get the feet and accessories i need here.
