Great Value and First Sewing Machine
This review is from: Singer Sewing Co. 2259 Tradition Sewing Machine 20 Utility Stitch Functions
Pros: Very good price for all the different stitches it has. My girlfriend loves using it and has gotten up to speed very quickly with it (it is her first sewing machine that she owns but not the first she has used). She has already made several things with it that have turned out great. Saves her a huge amount of time compared to sewing by hand.
Cons: Manual is a little skimpy with how to do stuff other than basic setup, but my girlfriend found several videos online as well as several books at the local craft store that have shown here all the techniques she need. She did mention the bottom needle/threader is a bit tricky to get set correctly, but once you do, it moves pretty quickly. She has said this is a common complaint of most sewing machines so I don't think this one is any worse than others when it comes to that aspect.
Other Thoughts: This is a good choice for a first sewing machine. No complaints on our end after over a month of using it. It is very sturdy and seems well built. Should last for years and many, many projects based on our time with it so far.
