the 1034D has a free arm which is great if you're sewing things like armholes, sleeves, waistbands, pant legs etc., it also has a differential feed so you can make things like ruffles or do a narrow hem stitching, as well as adjustable foot pressure. The replacement blades for them are affordable (probably because they're so popular) and it works great on curves.

The singer pretty much has almost every feature the 1034d had except the free arm. I just found it a bit more....finicky than the 1034D. They're both pretty loud but that's to be expected for the cheaper models. Its only when you start upgrading where you get the quieter motors on the machines.
