Good Value, Easy To Use

I got this little machine for my 10 year old granddaughter and it has been great. Just the right size for her to learn how to sew. It's very easy to thread.

This is my first very own sewing machine and the directions were easy to follow and the machine even easier to use. I only had an issue figuring out how to set up the bobbin but i got it within minutes thanks to the Singer Youtube.com tutorials. I am extremely happy with this purchase.

I haven't sewed for a very long time and wanted to sew, maybe start with little things and move up. I got the Singer basic machine because they have been in business for years. I could not have chosen a better sewing machine. The bobbin thread is so easy to load. The machine itself is easy to load. It comes with a detailed instruction book and diagrams. Everything about it is more than I expected. I Love IT! I am going to move up to a bigger machine and I can't wait!!

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.
