81.3 The Singer 1512 Promise II sewing machine is a very basic machine with a limited number of features. It is also very easy to use. This lack of complexity, coupled with the ease of use, makes the 1512 a good fit for the beginner. The machine does come with some good features, including 13 stitches (basic, decorative, buttonhole), a free arm, a built-in thread cutter, a reverse lever, and adjustable stitch width. Build quality is average but then this in not a particularly costly machine. Some owners describe it as a decent machine on a budget.
