|The Singer 1234 Sewing Machine may look somewhat like a child’s toy, but appearances can be misleading. Though very basic, this is actually a highly serviceable, extremely reasonably priced sewing machine for anyone who only needs the fundamentals. Slightly scaled down in size and weight, this machine travels well and can easily be stored away when not in use.
While this is not a feature-packed sewing machine, it can handle most sewing or mending chores. Controls are very simple and easy to interpret, consisting of a stitch selection dial and a reverse lever. The six basic stitches include straight, satin, zigzag, blind hem, scallop and a four-step buttonhole. The selection of presser feet is equally as limited: all-purpose, buttonhole and zipper.
The Singer 1234 Sewing Machine includes some very nice features. A threading diagram is printed right on the machine, so threading is quick and easy, even for the absolute beginner. Threading is a tedious chore, and, if done incorrectly, can cause innumerable problems. An easy-to-read threading guide is a significant advantage. Additionally, the length and stitch width settings are pre-programmed, eliminating another decision that might be confusing for the beginner.
Dual spool pins allow the use of two different threads for professional-looking hem stitching, giving a more finished look to garments made from knit fabrics, or for decorative sewing using two different thread colors. A removable free arm makes hemming pants, as well as attaching sleeves and collars, a breeze.
The included accessories are the necessities: extra needles and bobbins, a combination lint brush and seam ripper, a darning plate, power cord and foot pedal, user manual and Quick Start Guide. A nice addition is a project sheet for a tote bag that is designed to be used to carry and store the 1234. Finally, some cute and colorful decals are included so that the machine can be personalized, which will appeal to young sewers.
Priced at about $100, this machine will appeal to three groups of sewers: beginners who are interested in learning on an easy-to-use machine; intermediate sewers who want a basic machine just for repairs and simple projects; and serious sewers, with more sophisticated machines at home, who want a smaller, portable sewing machine that can travel to classes, client sites, or on crafting retreats, cruises and vacations. Anyone looking for a low cost, no-frills machine that can deliver functionality, durability and Singer reliability will find what they are looking for in the 1234 Sewing Machine.
The Singer 1234 sewing machine gives beginning sewists and hobbyists just enough features to get their creativity off the ground. Perfect for beginners and hobbyists.
