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

I bought this Singer sewing machine three weeks ago, and since then I have sewn a button-front shirt, altered a pair of khakis and a pair of jeans (including sewing through a thick double-folded hem), and sewn three T-shirts. This Singer performed flawlessly on all these projects, and is so easy to use. I much prefer it to computerized sewing machines, with all their beeping and losing all your stitch settings if you have to turn off the machine for awhile. I like that this Singer Simple 3223 uses a standard Class 15 bobbin, which is very easy to find in stores. I think it's easy to thread--I don't need an automatic needle threader. I like the wide variety of 23 stitches on the machine and the automatic buttonholer. I like that it came with with a zipper foot, buttonhole foot, and button sewing foot. I do wish that it had come with an extra spool pin for twin needle sewing, but I made one from a wooden dowel, so that's okay. The machine was a very good value, and does everything I need in a sewing machine which is mostly sewing clothes.

Good Value

After years without sewing i had to practically learn how to sew again. This machine was so different it actually was hard to get going. My old model was a Singer about 1965 and for me was a snap.

I had a hard time getting everything to work and if it had not been for the video that came with it i would probably have taken it back. Once I got it going it was OK. The threading of the needle was hard to get right but a good idea since I'm much older with not as sharp sight as years ago.
