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.

My 8 year old daughter seemed to pick up how to use this sewing machine very easily. She absolutely loves it and uses it a lot.

Learning all over to sew

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.

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

GIFT FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER

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.

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.

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.
