Singer 1507
Click to see on Amazon

81.8 An inexpensive machine that is probably best for beginners, the Singer 1507 gets good grades from consumers for being quite compact and easy to use.   It also comes with 8 built-in stitches, a 4-step automatic buttonhole and a 25 year warranty.  It is a bit short on accessories however, and some owners struggle with the vertical bobbin and the tension settings.  [REF Singer Sewing Machine Reviews]

Consumer Ratings
The Singer 1507 retails on a number of respected sites and owners have provided the following ratings:

Consumer Insights
Consumer comments also yield insights into common Singer 1507 likes and dislikes.  In general the machine is popular with folks we are looking for a simple and easy-to-use sewing machine.  It is also not too expensive and can often be found for under $100.  There are, however, a number of comments from owners who struggled with getting tension set properly and also several comments regarding the downside of a vertical bobbin and a horizontal thread holder.
