i'm getting a new a singer electrical sewing machine for my birthday this year, but not sure what model is best. i'm a beginner, so "user friendly" is important, but i would like some complex functions as well so when i'm more familiar to the machine i can make more complicated stitches etc. with it.
please can anyone recommend a good singer model? thanks so much!

I have no clue about this, but my Mommy has a vintage singer and it can do lots of different stitches etc (she tried to teach me..) so I'm guessing the new "basic" ones would have a lot of different stitches? Does the website not explain the functions so you can compare?

Welll I did not know anything about sewing and sewing machines and I taught myself How to Use It and Sew, and EVERYTHING about sewing. I got the Brother Project Runway Sewing Machine, it was cheap and it is great for beginners i think. I mean i dont know everything about sewing machines of course but it has worked great for me, and it is light weight, and easy to use. I recommend a Brother, the Project Runway ones are good for a lower price!

The new singers are crap compared to the older ones.
I use my Mom's older one and its nice and very simple.
