Singer Curvy 8763 – Review & FAQs

(Last Updated On: December 29, 2021)

When it comes to old-school, old-fashioned, solid and heavy-duty sewing machines, there are two brand names that pop up in everyone’s mind: Singer and Brother.

Each and everyone of us has seen an old-fashioned and heavy-duty Singer or Brother at home – doesn’t matter whether it belonged to mother or grandmother.

However, time has changed a lot; just like computers, powerful and yet portable sewing machines are possible. There are potent sewing machines in small and lightweight bodies that you can take anywhere with you.

Singer Curvy 8763

In case a portable but powerful Singer sewing machine is what you’re looking for, Curvy 8763 might be the best machine to buy for beginners. However, I’d like to remind you that there is no such thing as equally powerful and portable. Portability always comes at expense to power and functionality.

It’s just this machine performs way better than many portable sewing machines. It does so while being as powerful as possible.


Before I get into the nitty gritty of this sewing machine, it is important for you to understand my review criteria and how I review products.

So, definitely, there are only so many sewing machines that I can test and/or own, this is why for the machines that I have never laid my hands on, I trust on experts’ opinions – you know, the people who have been into manufacturing and testing such machines. Lastly, I rely on the reviews given to such machines by their verified customers on Amazon and other forums.

Likewise, the reviewing framework is pretty simple; I review these machines based on their most important features, their pros and cons and the answers to the most frequently asked questions about these machines.

Here are the answers to the FAQs.

Does it come with a case?

This is not a big and heavy machine, so there is no hard case that you can get with this machine. However, this machine comes with a soft dust cover.

Can I do free motion quilting with it?

Yes. Although this is a little tricky. The free motion quilting foot does not come with the machine so you may have to buy that separately. Also, you have to tweak with certain settings, but yes, it is possible.

How to turn it into a free arm?

There is an accessory box to the front and it comes next to the needle plate. Just remove that part and you will be able to enjoy the free arm functionality.


Singer Curvy 8763 is not for you if you are into heavy-duty sewing or quilting with materials like leather and denim etc., because it does not have that kind of motor or speed. However, if you’re a beginner or your sewing and quilting affairs only include lightweight fabrics, you must get your hands on this machine.
