Great buy for beginners.

It's a good sewing machine offered at a great price on amazon. Got it with all the mentioned accessories (and instructional dvd). The stitches offered are sufficient for someone who plans to use it for domestic purposes.
If you have no prior experience of using a sewing machine, no worries. The singer 1408 comes with a instructional dvd with instructions in hindi english as well as many indian languages. Beginners may find it all a bit overwhelming. Just be patient and follow the instructions closely.
Portable, lighter than its contemporaries.
Only drawback I could find is lack of a decent dust cover. The one offered with the machine is made of filmsy material.
