Singer 2277 Review: Product Specification And Functions
This is a compact type sewing machine with a dimension of 15″ x 6.2″ x 12″ and weighs 13.6 lbs. Though not the smallest, it still wouldn’t be too difficult to carry around or move whenever necessary.
The 2277 is the second among the Singer machines named TRADITION™. Several features are similar to its brother the Singer 2259 TRADITION™ Free-arm sewing machine but there are some additional and improved features.
The Singer 2277 has 23 built-in stitches that consist of 6 basic, 11 decoratives, 5 stretch and 1 buttonhole which are sufficient for several types of sewing projects. Both width and length can be adjusted based on user’s preference.
This machine features an automatic needle threader and a snap-on presser feet replacement function. Easy preparation indeed.
Both thread tension and presser feet pressure settings are automatic. Extra high lifting capability of presser feet to accommodate all thickness of fabrics.
Additionally, this machine has free-arm function, automatic reverse, variable needle positions, center zigzag taper and twin needle capability.
What’s in the box?
The machine comes with the standard paraphernalia like the instruction manual, quick start guide, foot pedal and power cord. Other accessories like different presser feet, needles and bobbins are also included.
3 complaints stood out among the customer’s reviews because they are the most common,
1. Bobbin trouble, either the bobbin thread always gets caught up somewhere resulting in nesting.
2. Threading is not as easy as advertised. A lot of users complains about the auto threader not working
3. The front load bobbin gives some user a hard time threading, specifically inserting the thread into a really small hole.
There were some mentions of the machine not powerful enough for sewing really thick fabrics but that is arguably an issue since the Singer 2277 is a basic household machine not designed for c0mmercial or industrial use.
Hope the Singer 2277 review was helpful. Below are some basic “how-to” videos for you to check out. Here, you can see a demonstration of the machine in action. This should help you decide towards or against getting this machine.
