Customer Reviews and feedback Scores
The Singer 2259 Tradition has been rated 4.1 out of 5 by 292 Amazon customers which undoubtedly is a good score for a machine designed for the beginner sewers. Priced at a paltry $82.98, this machine offers more than expected and we can declare this from the testimonies of several satisfied customers.
Meanwhile, while going through the customer reviews, we have come across a few let downs as well. While some of the customers seem to have been having jamming issues (the machine gets constantly jammed while sewing- can’t go through 10 stitches without jamming), others have been facing bobbin timing problems. But, beholding the price and the other essential features, we can’t disregard this machine totally.
So, to conclude, the Singer 2259 is a great piece of machine for the total novice. We specially eulogize the sturdy metal frame that this machine features which is rare in most machines of its kind. The final verdict can be accepted as a “go-for-it”.
