Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

Couldn't be more pleased with this 4423. It's my my workhorse--handles everything. Bought it to have for the heavy jobs and also to have as a 2nd machine for when I'm sewing something which requires thread color changes often. This machines handles it all with ease and power. When I got it I took a strip of denim and folded layers in here and there to see how it would sew. This machine sewed down the strip up and over the humps like butter and without a vibration either. I was impressed as I had 14 layers in the little lumps. This would be a good starter machine for a beginner or to have as a 2nd machine for the heavy sewing. It does an equally nice job on sheer fabrics too. I am very happy with this machine! Just remember to use the correct size needle for the sewing job you're doing and you won't have any problems.

"A Guy Machine"

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, My Dogs Like It.
Cons:
My Tailor Hates It.

I'm a 66 year old male and I needed a "guy machine" not a wimpy to many buttons kind of machine. Don't get me wrong the Singer 4423 has lots of extras. The 4423 was the perfect choice. I'm big in the belly and short in the legs so I always have a problem with pants that are too long legged. It cost me $8.00 every time I had my pants hemmed up. The Singer 4423 does the job easily. Like I said I'm a little too round so button popping is also a problem. The 4423 has an easy button sewing foot. No more sticking my fingers trying to hand sew those suckers. Oh and my eyes are a bit tired so threading a needle has always been a challenge. No more, the singer 4423 has a really great built in threader. At 1100 stitches per minute it made fast work of some black-out curtains I made for my t.v. room. the Singer 4423 is so much fun to use I'm constantly looking around my house to find something to sew. For instance my dogs chew up their stuffed toys. But now they are happy because I can sew up their toys instead of throwing them out. There, another savings. The 4423 has already paid for itself. My 92 year old mother has a Singer she bought during WW2. She still has it and it still works perfectly. That's why I knew my 4423 would be a great machine. Love it-love it-love it.

picky bobbin threading

I got this machine 5 months ago. It worked very well with different thickness fabric and the speed is very good. I noticed the bobbin threading problem at first try and it broke in 5 months of use. The upper thread won't pick up bobbin thread anymore and it won't loop and sew anymore. If the bobbin threading issue can be improved, this can be a great machine.

Boxy Casing

I purchased this machine over the internet by the description and picture of the machine. I am a seamstress and sew approx. 55 hours a week. I was looking forward to a heavy duty machine that still had metal parts.

I was disappointed in the boxy style of the casing as the needle is hard to change, and threading is harder - even with the auto threader.

I patch jeans frequently and do so by turning the leg inside out. I cannot see to sew the patch down as the casing edge is too far in front of the needle. I like the built in stitches, easy to use.

The instruction book is very basic and not helpful if you need to trouble shoot, nothing about cleaning/lubricating the machine.

The machine is a good value for the money but not what I was hoping for.

I won't buy sight unseen again!

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Versatile

Although I have to admit, I am new to sewing. Being a Man its kind of hard to find information on the subject. After doing some research on sewing machines, I chose the 4423 Heavy Duty model. My initial intention was to use it for sewing garment quality leather. It worked well, seeing how I had NO sewing experience what so ever. I then moved onto other projects, little ones like sewing two coats for two pups. It worked really well for this. I have to say, this machine is sturdy. I have since moved onto other materials, namely 80% polyester 20% Lycra. After realizing the importance of needles, with the leather. I quickly went and bought some ball point needles. I have to say, you have to have the right tools for ANY given job. This machine really does handle it. Looking for different presser feet, there are alot of them which fit this machine. At the nearby Singer Authorized Repair facility, they toolk the time to try out several different ones with me. Online they do not offer a big selection of available presser feet. I have a pretty good list of new items, I eventually will need. At the store where I purchased this machine, they tried to sell me a different make, other than Singer, but seeing how My Grandmother used a Singer, My Sisters used Singer's, I felt relatively secure in choosing a Singer. The quality is excellent and this machine really does a good job. Money well spent if you ask me.
