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.

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!!
a good basic machine for straight sewing which was what I needed - the first time threading the needle was an adventure - thank goodness there was a dvd because the picture on the instruction wasn't very good however a second viewing of the dvd did the job
Ik bought this machine at Walmart and after one full week of struggling to make a simple straight stitch, I returned it. I was told that this was the second machine to be returned. I traded for another one and it has worked like a charm, except the needle threader will not thread the needle. However, I'll just suffer with that instead of trying another swap.
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.
