Singer 1304 Review: Customers’ Feedback


Positive feedback:


  • Small and portable, easy to bring anywhere and can be packed away in a closet or cupboard when not in use.
  • Has twin needle function for sewing edges or can also be used as a decorative stitch.
  • Robust base in spite of its size


Critical feedback:


  • Vertical, front-loading bobbin system doesn’t make it easy to replace bobbin and raising the bobbin thread presents a challenge.
  • The thread always jams and breaks which is attributed to the lack of manual tension capability.
