Singer 1234 Review on General Specifications
This is a cute machine, probably as cute as its future owner. It is a compact and portable type sewing machine that is only 13″ x 7″ x 11.5″ in size and weighs 12.7 lbs. The internal frame is made of heavy-duty metal. The exterior of the machine presents a white and teal color motif that can be personalized with the decals/ stickers that comes with the machine.
Features & Functions
Unfortunately or fortunately (really depends on the intended user and their expectation), this machine also has “cute” features and functions.
• Armed with 6 built-in stitches and a 4-step buttonhole function.
• Stitch selection is done with a turn of a dial placed directly in the user’s direct line of sight.
• Automatic needle threader functionality makes it easy for beginners to set it up and start sewing in no time.
• Though limited in some functionalities, this machine is fast. It can sew as fast as 1100 stitch per minute.
• Don’t for a minute think that this small machine is flimsy and not more than a toy. Its heavy duty metal frame makes it sturdy and durable.
• Adjustable thread tension. Dual spool pin.
• Carrying handle is attached on top of the machine.
Whats in the box?
Instruction manual and quick start guide. Your first project guide (tote bag). Decal stickers to decorate your machine. Foot pedal and power cord. Extra needles and bobbins. Various presser foot.
The most common complaint on this machine coming from different users is the thread jamming and the bobbin frequently getting out of place. Also, probably because this is designed to be really compact, the bobbin case is installed under the accessories box and it is a front-load type. Some say that this is too complicated for a beginner to use, having to replace bobbins the unconventional way.
