Love it, Love it, LOVE it!
I bought mine second hand and have been sewing daily with it for 18 months now and I haven't even broken a needle!
This absolutely beautiful to look at machine has a self threader also so my eyes do not have to struggle with getting the thread through that teeny needle hole...
I have started up a micro business making Deluxe face masks, Delicates wash bags and lavender sachets and I am sewing every day currently and my Singer has not let me down...
I have sewn literally hundreds and hundreds of topstitched masks and there was only 1 time the s...

Gorgeous and do an awesome job
Guess everyone has different experiences and more likely different patience levels. I must admit it takes awhile to master some
Stitch options and I have to figured out myself from YouTube to one stitch options which finally be able to use my buttonhole kit with that small lever.
overall after I mastered all of the Operational plus always use the best thread which with gutterman I hardly find any issue, I’m pretty proud of my patience levels and so happy to confess this is my dream sewing machine! Not just a look but I don’t need a separate overlocker machine to do all the sewing job, it has a nice steady adjustable stitch and can do a simple border embroidery too ! Just what I need.
Not just a good looking
But It’s a Must have

No pressure foot control
Machine does not have a pressure foot control.....and does not like bulk material......2 layers of fleece and can't cope with a buttonhole. I'll be pulling out my old janome to finish the job...also prob fix my 1960s machine even better so disappointing that today's machines are made so poorly.

Looks can be deceiving
I bought this machine from spotlight in 2018. Within an hour it was making a great deal of noise. Screw popped off the back turning wheel and it popped right off..Took it back to spotlight...apparently fixed....NOT... This has happened twice. Took six weeks before I got machine back. Very disappointed with service. Wouldn’t replace machine even though under warranty... Definite fault. It still makes quite a bit of noise when sewing...however it is easy to thread and being able to see the bobbin through the clear window is a bonus..I would not purchase this machine again.....I bought it because of the heritage look.. don’t be fooled by the look...

Simply the worst
This machine kept reverting to the C6 error which is infuriating as you have to readjust it constantly. It is very precious. Lots of fiddling to get it working. It does not go happily through heavy fabrics, in fact it doesn't go happily through anything. And then when I thought it couldn't get any worse, the turning reel on the right of the machine flew right off. It wouldn't reattach. I took it to the sewing machine shop, they said the screw was too small to hold the reel in place. They said the Heritage was the worst machine they'd ever serviced and appalled at the quality. Very flimsy. I am looking for a new machine. This is simply junk!

Love my singer
I bought one and love it. Beautiful stitches. Quality thread and correct settings makes a difference.I recommend anyone to buy one of these.
You won't be sorry. Remember it's limited edition. I bought the last one in the shop
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Use quality thread.
Purchased for my daughter's birthday. Easy to thread (wow! So easy), bobbin wound (easy also).
I will say, I was all over my new best friend YouTube before buying machine. Tutorials, love em. There we were ready to go, breath held, full of excitement. Then...... waa waa waa! Tension was all over the place. What a mess. Then I noticed the needle wasn't sitting central on straight stitch, fiddled and messed around a bit. Tried the zipper foot and went gently figuring it would hit. It didn't. What tha? Put multi foot back on and it was sit...

Pretty, but problems
I purchased this machine about 7 years ago as an ex demo. I have had problems with it from the get go. Keeps throwing a C6 error, which is apparently a thread tension issue. I have had it serviced and they repaired a couple of bits that were damaged, I'd say from its demo days, still the C6 error. It eats thread like the cookie monster. Doesn't tension the thread and you have it all loose and messy. It wasn't cheap and now I think I'd better start looking for another machine as this one is just not able to be used.
I had such high hopes for this machine. So many things I loved about its design.

Great learner machine, can go the miles.
I bought this machine a couple months into starting my online handmade children’s clothing store.
It has served me very well over the last two years.
I have had it running for upto 5 hrs daily and it doesn’t miss a beat.
I wouldn’t recommend it for heavy/thick items as it can struggle going through, but great for lightweight fabrics.
It doesn’t have a setting to adjust speed so for experienced sewers it could seem a little slow.
It’s a very solid machine and doesn’t jump around the table like other smaller machines can.
I love the needle threading option but you definitely need to read the instructions on how to use it correctly or watch a video tutorial....All round is a great machine for beginners upto advanced sewers it has definitely served and will continue to serve for what I need it for and looks great while doing it.

This machine has just fallen apart and it has had little use in the year I have owned it its a piece of junk and I would never recommend it to any one and as I bought it from spotlight there is no after sales services worth talking about

I love it!!!
I am a beginner to medium sewer. I am SO happy with this machine!! I love the look BUT also love the capacity of it. So far i have sewn thin and buttery fabrics like rayon, knit fabrics and heavier fabrics like busoku duck cotton! Not once it has let me down or have i run into a problem with it. I also made a cot bumper with it which had lots of cushiony layers and again, it did not let me down! The only thing i wish was different is that the needle automatically goes up when you stop sewing, so when you are pivoting you need to do this manually, but that’s just me being picky now! If you are into vintage looking things and good quality, this is your machine!

Looks good but.....
Though this Singer Heritage looks good, it could be better. Trying to thread and get running was a confusion in itself. Prior purchasing this machine, I read numerous reviews and was happy with what I read.
Firstly, I struggled to thread the Cotton through the needle eye, even though it is supposed to be easy. Actually went to YouTube for help. Eventually, managed to thread only to have stitching issues. Should have stayed with my original sewing machine of 30 years.

Does everything I need!
I’m a beginner sewer and, to be honest, bought this machine based on its looks (I didn’t know what else I needed to base my decision on!) It’s great though! It’s super easy to use and tells me when there’s a problem and what it is (usually the thread coming out). I’ve used it to sew baby playmats, skirts, bags, scrunchies, burp cloths etc, so albeit nothing too advanced yet.
I would recommend it when spotlight are selling for half price (which seems to be every few months)!
Don’t purchase on good looks alone
I have had nothing but problems with my Heritage, it’s clunky, breaks thread constantly, usually on commencement, and today the foot lift decided to stop working for no apparent reason.
I’m taking it back to Spotlight for repairs and hopefully a refund.
I’m an ex sewing machine mechanic and not even going to bother trying to find out what’s wrong with this absolute lemon.
I have nothing but praise for this outstanding sewing machine. It has a great selection of stitches to choose from, comes with multiple presser feet, storage in the removable platform is generous and so handy. It's also quiet (for a sewing machine) and extremely attractive. The best purchase I've made in years. I couldn't be happier.
Questions & Answers
Machine does not sew. I get this code C2 on when I apply other stitches except for button hole stitch. Any help?
Val, I had that problem aswell...I can’t remember how I fixed it..however each time I had an issue. I went through the instructions manual and started from the beginning...re thread bobbin etc....sorry that I can’t be more specific....my husband and I worked it out together.....it’s so annoying when it happens...
Hi, I like my singer Heritage but can not find the needle down function. Does it have one or not. TIA
Hey Lee there is a manual guide of that,
I’m sure it has needle down function, I’m sorry if I’m wrong you can do
What I had to do when I was stuck, was learn all the machine manual operation through their manual book, call
The distributor where I purchased my singer learn it all from YouTube!, or calling singer costumer service centre when i was stuck do the buttons hole, I called Them to find out of do the buttons loop, there’s the guy that patiently guides me for the machine operation process
Hope it helps
Pressing padal and not working, what can I do?
