Best Singer Sewing Machine

To many people the name “Singer” is synonymous with sewing machines.  Singer machines are very popular and people looking for sewing machines today often start their search by looking for a Singer.

The company has been around for over 160 years.  It was founded in 1851 by Isaac Singer, an inventor and entrepreneur.  They started mass producing machines in 1856 and today still manufacture sewing machines along with a range of other consumer products.

All of these sewing machines are good but we would urge you to read the reviews carefully before making a purchase because some may excel in one area and not another.  Consider your sewing needs carefully and make an informed decision.

Singer One Plus#1 Singer One Plus
The Singer One Plus sewing machine is getting very good grades from consumers.  This machine is a slightly more feature-rich version of the Singer One – a popular machine in its own right (and shown as #4 below).  The One Plus has 231 built-in stitches and owners report that it is smooth, quiet, and very easy to use.  On the downside there is some criticism due to the lack of good instructional materials.  Read our Singer One Plus review.  You can also check out the latest pricing for this model on Amazon.


Singer Stylist 7258#2 Singer Stylist 7258
With 100 built-in stitches and speed control the Singer 7258 Stylist is getting better reviews from consumers than many other Singer sewing machines.   It is not too expensive and can be found at some retail outlets for about $150 to $200.  Owners like the quiet and smooth operation of the Stylist and indicate that the manual is so easy to understand that they are up and sewing in no time. Like many sewing machines today however it uses a lot of plastic in its construction.  Read our Singer Stylist 7258 review.  You can also check out the latest pricing for this model on Amazon.



Singer 7256 Fashion Mate#3 Singer Fashion Mate 7256
The Singer Fashion Mate 7256 is well liked by owners and ratings are very good. This model, along with the Stylist 7258, are consumer favorites. This machine has 70 built-in stitches, an LCD screen, an automatic needle threader, and 13 needle positions. Consumers also report that the Fashion Mate is very easy to get up and running. However, some owners feel that the LED light provides only limited illumination and that the machine sometimes struggles on heavier materials.  Read our Singer Fashion Mate review.  You can also check out the latest pricing for this model on Amazon.


Singer One#4 Singer One
We’ve looked at a lot of Singer sewing machines in the past and while some get good reviews many get only average ratings from consumers.  The Singer ONE is something of an exception in this regard and owners are giving it high praise.  Owners like the fact that the unit is extremely easy to use, quiet and stylish.  It does struggle with thicker materials though and the instruction manual could be better.  Read our Singer One review.  You can also check out the latest pricing for this model on Amazon.



9960 Quantum Stylist#5 Singer 9960 Quantum Stylist
The Singer 9960 Quantum Stylist gets good consumer ratings.  It is feature rich and has 600 built-in stitches, 5 alphanumeric fonts, 13 automatic one-touch buttonholes and many, many more features.  Consumers report that this sewing machine is very easy to use and that it produces consistent, quality stitches.  However some folks find that the manual is not very easy to understand and that the machine is so full of features that they are a little overwhelmed.  Read our Singer 9960 Quantum review.  You can also check out the latest pricing for this model on Amazon.
