Customer Reviews

What customers who used the Singer 7422 have to say.

“I got this machine almost 10 years ago to replace the very basic Singer that constantly had issues with the bobbin, and snags, and tension. This machine has been a dream. I sew every month or so, and I’ve never had a problem. I don’t do anything too fancy, but the buttonholer is awesome. The only problem I’ve ever had is extremely thick fabrics (many layers) don’t always feed well, but since that is beyond what the machine is designed for, I can handle pulling it through. The stitches always come out beautifully.” from Consumerreports.org.

“Wonderful for quilting (piece work) I had a 1979 Singer. I had used it more than most people ever use a machine. I needed a new one & had been looking for several months. A friend found this one with a special quilters package & extension tray combo. She surprised me with it for my birthday. I have made 2 quilts & am working on another one. Only complaints: tension is not truely automatic, it must be manually changed at times. My other machine was 100% automatic. Light is not bright enough, casts shadows. I use a lamp. I cannot get thicker, bulky fabric layers under the pressure foot. I could on my older machine. Some quilt tops I will have to send out instead of doing them at home. This will be a great machine for traveling to seminars and classes. Threads with ease. Sews great. Not noisey.” from Joann.com.
