Singer Sewing Machine Reviews and Comparisons

Have you decided on a Singer Sewing machine?

The Singer Company is quite possibly the best-known brand when it comes to sewing machines. Singer produces a variety of machines for people of all different skill levels. If you already know you want to purchase a Singer sewing machine, then these Singer sewing machine reviews will help you decide on the best sewing machine for your child. On this page, I compare and give reviews for the 5 top-selling Singer sewing machines that, as of July 2017, have a selling price of less than $170 on Amazon.

The Singer sewing machines listed here include four basic mechanical machines and one computerized. All of them have simple features and functionality, which are perfect for people who are beginners. All of them come with some accessories. I have included 2 machines here that are not on the main comparison chart. They are the Singer Heavy Duty 4411 and the Singer Stylist 7258. The reason I left these two off of the main comparison chart is that they are not as affordable as competitor models offering the same, if not better, features.

The Singer Heavy Duty 4411 has a heavy duty metal interior frame, stainless steel bedplate, and a powerful motor. According to the manufacturer’s website, it can sew through just about anything. Priced higher for its heavy duty construction, this may be a good choice for beginners who aren’t afraid of a machine with a fast sewing speed. It may also be a good sewing machine for children wanting to experiment with different heavy duty fabrics.

The Singer Tradition 2259 is the most basic machine out of the 5 Singer sewing machines I review and compare. Even so, this machine has the right features your child needs to make starting a new hobby easy. Threading the machine can be done quickly following the arrows on the machine. Plus the easy stitch selection, snap-on presser feet, and the automatic 4-step buttonhole will have your child sewing in no time.

The Singer Fashion Mate 3333 is a small step up from the Singer Tradition 2259. The biggest differences being that the Fashion Mate 3333 offers more built-in stitches, an automatic needle threader, and a drop-in bobbin loading system. Also, esthetically, the Fashion Mate 3333 features a more sleek, modern design. Considering the price is fairly close to the Tradition 2259, I would choose the Fashion Mate 3333 over the Tradition 2259.

The Singer Simple 3232 is a comparable machine to both the Tradition 2259 and the Fashion Mate 3333 sewing machines in both pricing and functions. Offering slightly more built-n stitches than the previous two, the biggest difference for this machine would be that it features a 1-step buttonhole. If you are deciding between the Fashion Mate 3333 and the Simple 3232, I think it is going to come down to whether you prefer the drop-in bobbin system of the Fashion Mate 3333 or the 1-step buttonhole of the Simple 3232.

The Singer Stylist 7258 is the only computerized sewing machine in the Singer sewing machines that I compare and review. It offers all the options you would expect such as a drop-in bobbin system, an automatic needle threader, and not just one, but seven 1-step buttonholes. What makes this sewing machine stand out though is an electronic “auto-pilot” feature that allows one to sew without the foot pedal and to adjust the maximum speed easily. According to the manufacturer’s website, the Stylist 7258 is a two-time Consumers Digest award winner. If money is not an issue and you love Singer, then this is my pick for you.
