My Review of the Singer 1507

Singer 1507 Sewing Machine

The Singer 1507 is a good entry level machine with a powerful motor and an attractive design.

It does have a fairly limited number of stitches though, and so whilst I would recommend it for beginners or hobbyists, it isn't well suited to more advanced sewists.

Overview

The Singer 1507 is an attractive, nimble but fairly powerful machine, perfect for beginners and hobbyists. It has a total of 8 stitches, including a four-step buttonhole.

Stitches

As is the case with the Singer Promise 1409, the 1507 has a fairly limited selection of stitches. It has a four-step buttonhole and a total of 8 stitches, which includes a scallop stitch but no decorative stitches. If you are an advanced sewist, or you think you will use decorative stitches often, then I would not recommend the 1507 model for you. But for most beginners it has the basics covered. You can see the full set of available stitches in the image below:

Design

The Singer 1507 feels quite well built, and doesn't have the cheap feel you sometimes get with low cost machines.

I feel that Singer have done really well with the aesthetics of this machine. It has an attractive design, and the curved geometry and red and blue highlights set it apart from most other entry-level machines!

Other Features

Unlike the Brother LS14, the pressure of the presser foot can be adjusted using a dial on top of the machine, which is a useful feature if you are working with particularly thick or thin materials and need a little extra control.

Accessories

In additional to needles and bobbins, the Singer 1507 comes with the following accessories:

  • All Purpose Foot
  • Buttonhole Foot
  • Zipper Foot
  • Button Sewing Foot
  • Seam Ripper
  • Seam Guide
  • Darning Plate

This is the standard set of accessories for Singer machines, which is fairly generous compared to the accessories offered by some other brands.

I like that a darning plate is included, as you cannot drop the feed dogs on this machine.
