Cons: Poor Quality, Problematic

I am very disappointed with this machine. If I was a "beginning" sewer, I would return this to JoAnne Fabrics.
I've had it back to the store 3 times - the thread builds up under the fabric. The solution? To unthread the bobbin and top thread every time it jams up. This is counterproductive to say the least!
In addition, the top thread breaks almost every time I begin to sew.
I'm seriously considering returning it for refund. I've been sewing for many years, but do not consider myself a "pro", but I made my daughter's wedding dress and as a thank you received a gift card to purchase a new machine.
The machine I was using was my mother's and was at least 30 years old. Considering going back to it.
I'm not at all happy with the Talent.

Worked good for maybe 2 days then needle stopped. Checked everything inside & out, which was fine. Removed cap on manual turn knob & there was defective part inside. Returned & refunded.

Not a workhorse

Overall Rating:

Pros: Easy To Use, Seems To Like Lightweight Fabric

Cons: Poor Quality

This machine will be designated for lightweight use only. I've had to send it to be repaired after only 2 weeks of light use. When it came back, it didn't even engage...had to be sent back again. Service people are nice, but the "repair" left much to be desired. Wonder if I have a lemon??? The self-threader also is less than acceptable.

My old machine of 40 years died! I was nervous about getting a new one. This machine was extremely easy to thread and operate. My biggest fear was getting the tension right, it was
Extremely uncomplicated. I don't do as much intricate sewing any more and wanted a very basic machine, very pleased with this model.

Very user friendly, I love that it came with an instructional DVD. I had a Simplicity before and it broke countless times. I've seriously never been happier with a sewing machine!

I am a complete beginner. In February I took a free 2-hour sewing machine class at my local library, and then in March my 2nd grader had a Book Character assignment at school and decided to be Willy Wonka. I wanted to make him a lined purple paisley vest from a pattern and so I bought this machine. The vest turned out beautifully! I agree that the manual leaves a lot to be desired, but you can overcome that with diligence. I'm the type of person that makes pages of notes and questions and reads all the directions several times before starting a project. I googled a lot of my questions and asked some experienced friends a few things, and the DVD that comes with the machine was very helpful too. Next I'm going to make some sweatpants for my 5-year old and look forward to learning to use the stretch stitches with knit fabric. I can't wait!!

Disappointed

I purchased this machine to do simple piecing at my quilt guild charity sews.
The machine sounded like it broke a shaft one weekend during the sew. All the ladies were shocked just as I. I am so disappointed. The machine was only 8 months old. When I contacted Singer they stated I would need to take it to a certified Singer repair shop. The closest one is 6 hours away. To ship it would cost more than half of the value of the machine. So you got it. I am going to trash it. Such a shame. I love Singer but the new machine I bought is a Brother. Please be careful using this machine. It can't handle anything but simple two pieces of material sewed together.

I purchased this machine for an immediate need without comparison shopping, and was very pleased with its performance. I agree that it could be a bit heavier, but it was easy to use and a great value for money!

I hardly ever sew, but this machine makes it much less daunting! My only complaint would be that the foot pedal is rather light. Otherwise, I think it has been a good purchase.

Talent 3321

Overall Rating:

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

Cons: Manual Not Step-by-step Simple

86 out of 89 people found this helpful.

I would not really recommend a beginner try this machine at home alone as the manual is not step-by-step enough for a beginner. I am a Singer enthusiast, own several vintage Singers, and I really feel that is why I have been able to get excellent results with my Talent 3321. It's a great little machine but getting a good stitch with it was easier because I've sewn on so many different Singers. I knew, for example, that I needed to use the L-screwdriver when changing needles, and that I needed to try all of the stitches on a scrap to figure out what settings were needed to get the stitch I wanted. I will say this little machine sews the nicest stretch stitches and it is very simple to achieve those. The straight stitches are also very nice, something I've not always seen with machines that have both stitch types. The only reason I am not giving this a full five star rating is the manual-it doesn't give sufficient information on setting the stitches. If you buy this machine, and I do recommend it as a wonderful basic machine, make sure you practice with scraps, and take notes right into the manual for future sewing reference. The machine is not as light and jumpy as other reviews here and elsewhere have reported, I deliberately ran it at high speed in several settings and it sat quietly on the sewing table. The bobbin does click a bit whilst sewing but slowing down settles that. Bigger than it looks in the pics, too.

Fairly easy to use, nice stitches, easy to thread. Could be quieter, not really heavy enough as it likes to jump around a little when sewing at fastest speed.
