If you want a beginner sewing machine but think that mechanical type is too outdated, you should try this One from Singer (haha pun intended). In the Singer One review, we’ll tell you about this super easy to use and very quiet basic-featured sewing machine.
Singer One Review: General Specifications
The Singer One is a full sized electronic sewing. It is 23 x 10 x 13 inches big and weighs 23.9 lbs. The shape, like other models such the limited edition Singer 160 and Singer 90S, is designed to look like a vintage sewing machine. I personally like this design because it stands out among other box-type machines. The details add to its “personality” so to speak. The interior of this machine is a heavy duty metal frame that promises durability.
Singer One Review: Features & Functions
When it comes to features, the Singer One isn’t like other machines that are so packed you wouldn’t even know where to begin. This one has just the basic features a beginner sewists will need. (or possibly an experienced one who only works on basic projects)
• This machine features one-touch selection buttons. You do not have to enter corresponding number codes or get the tip of your finger calloused (ok fine, this is an exaggeration) by having to press on an arrow button a hundred times.
• It features 24 built-in stitches consisting of basic, stretch, decoratives and 2 buttonholes.
• 2 exclusive Singer features are also on this machine. The SwiftSmart Threading System which allows for easy needle threading, the Drop & Sew Bobbin System takes one step less your sewing preparation because you do not have to manually raise the bobbin thread.
• The recommended stitch setting is shown as the stitch is selected. Light indicator on the screen informs the user if any changes have been made to a stitch’s default setting.
• Features a presser foot sensor ensures that the presser foot is in place before you start sewing. Drop feed function allows free-motion sewing.
• This has an extra large sewing area. It’s not just the length of the needle to the arm but also the width.
• Sewing speed is 750 stitches per minute. Additional features are free-arm capability and auto reverse button.

Singer One Review: Known Issues
The primary complaint about this particular model is the instruction manual. Apparently, it has a lot of room for improvement. One other thing is the power of this machine not enough to sew through thick textiles.
