Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Light Weight Yet Sturdy

Was looking for a basic machine and this is exactly what I found with this machine. It does everything I need it to do and then some. Straight stitches, zig zag, buttons and button holes. I can make projects and mend projects. Sewing is a very relaxing hobby for me and I am happy to have found an affordable reliable machine. Well built and a name I trust.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Great For A Beginner

I purchased this machine for my 9 year old granddaughter. When she showed interest in sewing I sent her to the classes Joanns offers and told her if she liked it I would get her a sewing machine. She loved it. I wanted to get something that was not to expensive but a good product. After an hour or so of reviewing the instructions together, which were very easy to follow, she started her first project. This machine was very easy for her to use with no problems. This machine is great. I told her that I might have to get one for myself. I LOVED IT. I am glad my choice was the 3223 Simple. A plus...the pink matches her room.

Great mending and alterations machine, basic stitches, and unlike most computerised machines, the motor in this is quite powerful! I was powering through denim canvas and even neoprene wetsuit fabric on my first day of on-set tailoring for an advertising job.... Buttonholes on this machine are pretty rubbish, and so are the accessories, get yourself some good quality needles, bobbins and thread and your good to go!! If you dont need all the bells and whistles of a fancy machine, save your money and buy a good serger too!!
