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.
