Ratings & Reviews+

Singer 8280C Prelude Basic Sewing Machine is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 37.
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.
