RIP Singer 6135.

So I just called a nearby sewing machine repair shop and according to them, I would end up paying around $70 to fix what's wrong with my Singer. I paid $40 for it. I've barely had this thing for a month. I legitimately want to cry.



  1. did they say what was wrong with it?..and who did you get it there a guarantee? if its a good sewing the money to get it serviced..

  2. I got it from a thrift shop about a month ago. I went back in today and gave them my number in case they get another one in, but I'm going to do some tag sale and flea market hunting this weekend...

    From what I described to them over the phone, they said it sounded like the timing was off. The turning wheel is getting sticky now and when it finally goes, the needle ends up hitting the plate under the bobbin (which starts bending the needle), and it can't stitch. It's an alright machine, but I feel like I could have a better one. I bought it knowing there were a few flaws, but I was just desperate to get something that would stitch the goodies I wanted to start making. :/

  3. I had the same problem with mine...I hope you can find something better..:) keep us posted..;)
