Attractively priced in the under $100 range, the Singer 1507 Sewing Machine does everything you’d expect from a basic machine – and more. Meant for the beginner, or the seasoned pro looking for a portable, workaday machine, the Singer 1507 8-stitch sewing machine is exactly what the people at Singer claim it is – a steady, easy-to-use, portable machine.
The eight basic stitches that come with the Singer sewing machine model 1507 are enough to get anyone started on their sewing career, or to take care of any type of basic sewing need that would crop up around the house. That means cuffs, crafts, sewing seams, rips and tears, attaching buttons, and so forth. Fashion sewing, crafts, home décor and decorative stitching are all available (including an adjustable zigzag stitch). Of course, that doesn’t mean the Singer sewing machines 1507 are limited to the most simple tasks and the lightest fibers. Some reviewers reported success with multiple layers and thicker fabrics like denim. And reviewers love the quiet reliability of this machine – that it just chugs along and does what it’s supposed to do.
The Singer sewing machine 1507 has lots of features to make using it easy and fast. That includes automatic threading, and a 4 step automatic buttonholer, which takes the guesswork out of that task. It’s got three needle positions , a foot pedal for speed control, and the ability to easily adjust the pressure (tension) and stitch length. These features allow for that versatility sewers want even in a machine in this price range. For sewing hems, cuffs, and other hard-to-reach places, it’s got a free arm – allowing the sewer to slip the project right on and keep going with the work. For easy changing of the presser feet and bobbin, it’s got a “snap-on” system, so you’ll hear that satisfying click when it’s ready.
These additional features set the Singer 8-stitch sewing machine apart also:
- A heavy-duty metal frame, which gives stability and strength, even in a machine which is, at 17.2 pounds, light enough to be portable.
- Built-in storage – so those accessories won’t get lost when you need them most.
- An extra-high presser foot lifter – for more clearance with multiple layers and heavier fabrics.
- An excellent, four-segment feed dog system, so that the fabric has movement and support all along its length.
For portability, it’s got a canvas cover with space for the convenient handle, and a light, yet tough design for long-term quality. If portability is not what you’re after, it also comes with the capability to mount onto a cabinet – in just a few steps.
Those who have posted a Singer 1507 review are generally favorably inclined towards the machine. Most find the manual to be very easy to understand, and find satisfaction that the machine performs as it is supposed to perform.
One complaint that several have mentioned is that the top thread lays horizontal and bobbin inserts vertically. That makes it difficult to get used to (for those used to horizontal bobbins) and difficult to wind when using larger spools of thread. Others have complained that the foot pedal is lacking something like a “cruise control” and can therefore be difficult to get to the right speed, and stay there. Still others find the foot pedal to be very sensitive.
All in all, reviews of the Singer 1507 with cover sewing machine show it to be a solid, sturdy, basic machine at a good price that does exactly what it’s supposed to do.
