Singer 8780 Curvy
Released September, 2008
The Pros:Reliable performance with a nice finish on most things. Monogram feature works reliably on a number of fabric types. Large selection of stitches to play with.
The Cons:No instructions provided for the feet, difficult to figure out. Takes a number of presses on the pedal to get it to respond sometimes. Bobbin is fragile, prone to breaking into pieces.
The Singer 8780 Curvy is a high-end electronic sewing machine similar to the Singer 8770 Curvy. The sole, yet significant, improvement that sets the 8780 apart from the 8770 is an extension table.

Otherwise, the two sewing machines offer the same features and functionality, including: 227 stitch patterns including alphanumeric stitches, seven full automatic one-step buttonholes, a Drop & Sew bobbin system and twin needle sewing capability.
The 8780 Curvy's extension table offers more room for more unwieldy sewing projects and is detachable, allowing the 8780 to function normally for smaller-scale projects. Its Drop & Sew bobbin system eliminates the need to manually raise the bobbin thread, allowing users to just drop in the bobbin and sew. Meanwhile, the 8780 Curvy's twin needle sewing capability allows for more decorative sewing patterns that take half the time to sew.
