Singer Start 1306 Sewing Machine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money. I purchased this machine for my 7 year old granddaughter who is very keen to learn to sew. I chose this machine because, with guidance as she is young, she will find it very easy to use. The threading is simple and she will soon be able to thread it completely by herself. The range of different stitches is enough to interest her and although it is a fairly 'basic' machine it will enable her to progress and will keep her interest alive. I'm delighted with the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter machine I'm a complete novice sewer and this machine is really simple to use. The instructions are very helpful but you don't really need them as there are simple pictures on the machine to show you how to thread it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy machine for beginner Very pleased with this machine. Lightweight and easy to use and set up. It would have been 5 stars if the foot pedal was a bit more substantial. Excellent price at Hobbycraft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgraded to this because of a faulty cheaper machine. I have to say that there is a massive difference in quality and how it works. Easy to use and reliable. Excellent would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent basic sewing machine My old top-of-the-range Singer machine is too heavy for me to lift, hence the need to invest in something lightweight. The Singer 1306 has a basic range of stitches, including zig-zag and buttonholes, and absolutely suits my current requirements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Machine Having had a Singer for the last 40 years I was keen to replace it with another. So far I have not been disappointed. Its a good basic machine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine for home sewing My husband bought me this machine as a birthday present. My other sewing machine is 30 years old, very heavy and past it's best. I am delighted with my smaller lighter model , plus it's a reliable singer machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first machine I bought this machine for my nephew who has taken a big interest in sewing and designing garments. I chose Singer for a reliable brand. The machine is quite, and a little heavy for its size, but a great little starter machine for basic home sewing.
