Editor rating


Singer Superb 2010 is a computerized sewing machine designed for intermediate or advanced sewers.  The machine has 220 built-in stitches including 9 one-step buttonholes. 2 built-in alphabets are available for monogramming. You can use the block or script style fonts in both upper case and lower case. A total of 1000 stitch functions are there to unleash your creativity. There is a top drop-in bobbin with clear cover which lets you keep an eye on the thread supply. The etched in markings on the needle plate acts as a guide (you can see where the stitches go).

Superb 2010 has a reasonably sized LCD display (it could have been a bit larger though). The screen is back lit and it displays the selected stitch, tension, stitch settings and recommended presser foot. There is an automatic needle threader for painless needle threading. The programmable needle up/down button is a huge plus point. You can keep the needle in up position for removing the fabric or put the needle down which is really handy while pivoting or quilting.

The best thing about Singer Superb 2010 is that it has built-in memory to store stitch patterns or phrases. There are 4 memory modules and each can hold up to 20 entries. You can use those saved patterns any time you want. Another great feature is that you can mirror image and elongate select stitches with just the touch of a button. But keep in mind that not all stitch patterns can be elongated or mirror imaged. Select stitches can be elongated up to 5 times.

The maximum stitch width is 7mm. The stitch length and width are set for optimum results, you can override them for customization. You can even store the customized stitch length and width for a particular pattern in the memory, for later use. Horizontal thread delivery ensures even thread movement which improves the stitch quality. The sewing start/stop button and speed control slider lets you sew without using the foot pedal (Singer calls it electronic auto pilot).

The automatic locking stitch button on Superb 2010 locks the stitches preventing them from coming loose. The reverse stitch button is also placed in an easy to access location. Electronic twin needle control automatically adjusts select stitches to twin needle sewing. 13 needle positions are available on the machine.

Presser foot pressure and thread tension is automatic. There is an extra high presser foot lifter for dealing with multiple layers of fabric. It offers extra clearance for bulky fabrics. Cuffs and sleeves can be sewn by converting the machine to free arm. Feed dogs can be lowered for doing free-motion works. The machine doesn't have an automatic thread cutter, instead a manual cutter is provided on the side. Singer Superb 2010 comes with an extension table which makes it easy to work on large projects. There is a built-in accessory storage compartment as well.

Ease of Use

Singer Superb 2010 is easy to thread. There is an immense variety of stitch options and the quality of stitches are pretty good. The machine has an extra LED bulb which illuminates the work space well. The machine is reasonably light, but still it is not the lightest machine you can get (which is a good thing as all the parts are not plastic).

Pros

•    Decent quality stitches
•    Lot of advanced features
•    Good build quality
•    Built-in memory
