Pros: Affordable and Relatively easy to understand, Easy to get maintence on it
Cons: Frustrating bobbin system, tension problems, bad instructions
Summary: I recently returned my Singer model 2517 after receiving it for Christmas. Even as a novice sewer - the machine seemed far too elementry, and had too many confusing problems/directions. My grandmother whom has passed on her love of sewing to me loves ... read more
