    Default Singer Sewing Machine models.

    Hi,

    Can anyone guide me through the differences in the Singer Sewing machine models? Do you have one at home? If so can you tell me the Model Number of it. I went to the showroom and found a couple of models but not sure which one would to buy.

    I found 2 interesting models. Model 8280 & Model 4228.

    Can you please let me know the difference between those & how effective it is -- if anyone is using it?

    Thanks,
    Anu

    HI,
    Yes I had a singer and it was superb.I don't know the model number,but it was witha zigzag stich attachment.If you are a serious seamstress with a kid or kids, you can go in for the fashion maker model.Goodluck!!

    No problem Kaluputti.... I will check with the dealer or any of the showrooms again to get some info. My actual need would be different types of stitches, quilting, embroidery..... Hope I can come to a conclusion ........

    Hi,I own a Singer Fashion Maker Rotomatic Model. My mother and mother-in-law have Usha normal models. During the period of usage, my opinion is that the parts of Singer Fashion Maker Rotomatic Model are not as robust/strong as that of Usha. The comfort level appears to be more for USHA. Singer Fashion Maker, i feel is a delicate model.The above are my personal thoughts.

    Hi Revathi,

    Thanks for your reply... Yes, everything has changed now.. I enquired a lot and got confused to come to a conclusion... the above two models has the same options which you have listed but its 8280 has 7 basic stiches & 4228 has 20+ stiches.... Hope the one which I choose also lasts longer...
