The Singer Confidence sewing machine is everything I thought it would be. It was a Christmas come birthday present from my family. I am slowly learning what it can do that's different to my old machine and am enjoying the journey. The automatic threader was a little tricky to grasp but I got there in the end!! Hope to have lots of pleasant hours sewing.

I absolutely love my new Singer sewing machine 'confidence'. I really didn't know how much it could do. Still not mastered the auto threading but I haven't given up. It's a while since I have done any sewing but I can't wait to really get stuck in and spend a day on a project .

Rated 5 out of 5 by patch17 very happy with this machine and would recomend it to others.
This machine has all the facilities which i need for my sewing projects. There are a huge variety of stitches to choose from and these are easy to change on the menu screen. The machine has some very useful accessories which are stored within the body of the machine. I found the written instructions easy to understand and i was using the machine successfully within 20 minutes of unpacking it.

This machine is fantastic, I am still exploring all the stitches it can do, and the automatic buttonholes are something to die for!!!!
Well worth buying and getting rid of the boring old machine :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dandi68 Excellent machine
Only had this machine a few days. Bought it to replace an older Singer with not many features on it. Mastered the needle threader first time and finding my way around is a joy. Runs smoothly and quieter than my old machine. Can't fault it and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenson I'm so glad I bought this machine
I recently ordered the Singer 7470 Confidence sewing machine from Hobbycraft. The ordering process was simple, and the price was the best I could find anywhere. It didn’t take long to arrive, but we were out when Royal Mail delivered the machine and I couldn’t believe they just left it in the porch! Luckily it was still there when we got home.
The machine is great – everything I hoped for. I read the instruction book through first, and it is well set out and easy to follow. I wound a bobbin and got the machine threaded up. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to master the automatic needle threader as I had read several reviews where people had given up, but I was pleasantly surprised and got it threaded on the first attempt.
The Singer 7470 runs quietly and smoothly, and is very easy to operate. I picked several stitches at random and all of them sewed perfectly. I then had a go at sewing names, and again they sewed beautifully. The foot pedal feels a nice weight – not too light, as I thought it might have been. I really feel in control, which is good as I only took up sewing again recently after a long break of many years.
I haven’t used all the different feet yet, and I haven’t made buttonholes, but from what I have done so far I think this is a great machine for both beginner and the more experienced machinist. Well done Singer. And well done Hobbycraft for a great price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dorsetrose Only upper case font
It is a lovely machne but I have a very good Janome machine and was looking for a machine which would do monogrammes but this one is only upper case letters. But I was very impressed with it other wise and obviously I need a more expensive machine for what I want to do. The value is phenomenal with the Confidence 7470 and especially good price through Hobbycraft. I was very impressed with their help in this instance.

Really easy to use even for a total novice like me-the letters are great for simple tgings such as school uniform and i love the little pictures too. I look forward to using it for years to come
