Ratings & Reviews+

Singer 8280C Prelude Basic Sewing Machine is rated 3.7222222222222223 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible, terrible, terrible... I recently bought this machine and the reverse lever was broke along with the tightening function on the lower bobbin. Regardless of the defects, threading the machine sought to be VERY difficult and time consuming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, basic sewing machine I bought this awhile ago and have had no issues yet. I sew/quilt, but I recommend if your an avid quilter-this is not the machine for you (I have down basic, small quilting projects, but large quilts are impossible.) I found it quick and easy to thread, the enclosed manual is clear and easy to understand-if you encounter any problems, I would recommend checking out the manual. I have never watched the enclosed DVD (maybe one day.) I have made dozens of projects and clothing on this machine with no issues/problems. I do advise to keep it maintained- oil/lube (included); when taking the bobbin out, check for debris and "sweep out"-this will stop any jams/freezing of your machine down the line. I am now teaching my granddaughter a few things on sewing and this machine will not overwhelm/confuse her-great for teaching the basics. Would recommend for a beginner or someone who sews occasionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OVERALL GREAT MACHINE! Amazing little, jamb-packed unit, as good for the experienced seamstress as it is for the beginner. Works wonderfully!!!! Lots of bells and whistles.
