I have been trying to fix up my Mom's old Singer since she passed 2yrs ago, ugh. Finally with the help of my cousin I decided to buy a new one..Had another model in mind but can't find it. Found this at Canadian Tire, brought it home and prepared to be frustrated. Piece of cake getting it set up. I didn't load the bobbin correctly at first, just took a second to correct that and away I went..New kitchen curtains up within 45 minutes..

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Light Weight So I Can Easily Move It, Sews Through Thick Layers Of Fabric

I bought this one as a backup machine because my other one is extremely old. After trying this machine, I liked this machine so much I bought a second one. It plows through thicknesses of fleece and can sew on thin fabric too.

Poor Quality, Complicated

Frankly, I am not finding my new machine very user friendly. I have used Kenmore sewing machines all of my life, have taught sewing, and am pretty proficient at sewing. My 30+ year old Kenmore was no longer functioning so I purchased a Singer 3221 model machine. I was thrilled by the price and the prompt delivery but have found that getting the bobbin in place is a real chore. To me, this machine is not easy to use at all, and I am very disappointed at this point. I had looked at the ratings of others before purchasing the machine. Frankly, I am surprised by the 4-5 star ratings. The machine seems poorly made also, which probably explains the inexpensive price.

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

As the name says very easy and simple to use and still very versatile. I am a man and have been associated with Singer machines since my childhood because of my mother. I am 67 now and still can use a Singer machine.
