Singer Tradition 2273 Sewing Machine
Just likes it's partner models in the Tradition range, this Singer 2273 has all the functions, reliability, quality and strength. Plus it offers extra features.
It is more suitable to users that want to do more dressmaking. It covers a slightly different selection of stitches. It does have the straight stretch stitches as explained on the 2263 page, however the 2273 has a one-step button system, which is suited to users that need precise measured buttonholes for each button. Perfect professional looking buttonholes every time and each buttonhole will be the exact same size as the last, thanks to the unique button measuring system used by the machine and foot.
We also like the horizontal spool pin to stop thread twisting when sewing at fast speeds. It has the fast way to thread needles with the built-in automatic needle threader. When winding the bobbin the hand wheel is automatically disengaged to stop the needle moving whilst winding thread on to the bobbin. When the bobbin is full it will stop.
The Singer 2273 uses the simple front loading 15k type bobbin system. It gives plenty room to access the bobbin case once the sleeve arm accessory storage plate has been removed. It's electronic foot control helps you maintain control at all times.
The 2273 sewing machine is capable of doing many types of stitching projects. It comes with a feed cover plate, so free-motion embroidery is possible. Patchwork can be sewn thanks to the patchwork guide which is included. Heavy curtains or multiple layers of denim are not a problem to this ridged aluminium framed sewing machine and electronic foot control.
Where does the 2273 excel over it's other competition in the Tradition range.? Personally I would say the one-step buttonholes are a great addition to this machine.

Fast delivery service - very impressed! Pleased with the machine - it is a lot different from my old Singer machine but am getting used to the new features. The only new feature I have used so far that I cannot get on with is the automatic needle threader, it is too complicated and really needs to be looked at again by the designers. Also far too much plastic that can snap and break - it was all chrome plated metal on the old machine and much better. Overall, apart from the couple of comments I have mentioned, am happy with the sewing machine and would recommend it.
Very pleased with the machine which I purchased as an upgrade from my existing basic Singer model . I am now able to achieve a professional finish to my work.
Excellent attention on ordering and delivered exactly on time, only problem I could not registration immediately as your records had not changed to show 2018 on the day I ttried. I have done so since thank you
I liked the machine, It's good, and working smoothly. Easy to use and even good for professional stitching.
Excellent service next day delivery, machine does exactly what it says on the box absolutely loving it.
I am very satisfied .so easy to use great results.very smooth. It's very brilliant product good value for money and very pleased with the free gift. I am very happy and would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic machine as I haven't sewn for years I am looking forward to using my new Singer 2273. Good value for money and very pleased with the free gift.
Everyone very happy with this new purchase, which is a large step up from the previous antique model (literally).
The sewing machine was bought for my daughters 11th birthday. I didn't want a toy machine, but one that would last her for years as she had used a full size machine on a textile course she attended during the summer holidays. She loves this machine and finds it easy to use, although she hasn't tried anything difficult as yet. I can see that she will gain confidence and try different types of sewing over time. With a bit of luck she might even let me have a go!
I did a massive amount of research online before replacing my 40 year old Singer machine with this one. It has all the features I wanted at a superb price. I phoned the company on a Saturday, got a live expert who gave good advice, and was promised free delivery on a 24 hour service. Good machine, great value for money and an amazing service, together with TWO free gifts. I'm going to order some extra presser feet from these people - they sure do deserve to get all my future business.
