Nice Light Silent Machine

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

I'm not a tailor & I don't sew regularly at all, but I'm really impressed with this machine. I've bought it for my projects that require some sewing. I've used a few other machines long ago & compared to them, this one is lighter, more compact & much more silent. It has great features & controls & a good selection of stitches which are worth the good price.

It's only been a few days that I've had it at home, but I've practiced too much with it including sewing too much of fabric for no specific reason & also fixing some old clothes. It's done really well on different materials from thin fabric to several layers of thicker ones & even cardboard!.

I'm gonna need more practice before I can confidently start using it for my projects.

Wonderful machine. If you want to sew basic articles, clothes, repairs, buttonholes, this is the machine. I have a brand new computerized machine that was a gift, I hated it. Things were too complicated. I bought the Tradition because it gave me all that I needed. A basic machine that operates perfectly.

The Instructions Are A Little Vague For A New Sewer

everything works well except the needle threader...which is a pain. I found it easier just to thread the needle the old fashioned way!. Also I had problems with the bobbin setting....which I had never dealt with before. The instructions need to include what the sewing looks like when the bobbin tension is too tight and too loose in the section about the bobbin. It took me quite a while to figure out why the thread was bunching up under the fabric and the plate. fortunately I didn't break the machine with all the balled up thread before I figured out how to fix the issue.

Once all the settings are correct the machine works great. I'm glad I have it.

The only thing I use a sewing machine for is the occasional repair. I don't even hem my own pants. I had a machine that broke and when I found out I could by a new one for the cost of repair I bought the 2277. I left it in the box for a long time and let it intimidate me. Finally my mother-in-law sat me down with it and I was surprised to see how easy it was to use. I would recommend this machine to anyone.
