When I was a young girl, I used to be so impressed with how my mom stitched my first party dress. The mechanical clanking and the needle going up and down on the Singer sewing machine she used just enticed me. The red logo was rather striking on that whitewash machine. I kept on seeing the same brand over and over again every time I visited relatives or went for a sleepover at a friends place. By the time I was 16, my mom gave me her old sewing machine and she picked up a new one.
In 2011, I wanted to get myself a new Singer sewing machine and frankly I was disappointed. The products from this once stellar brand seemed cheap and plasticky. But after a series of complaints and a severe drop in sales, Singer opted to remodel and improve its products. Ever since, Singer has been reclaiming its previous glory.

Singer Fashion Mate Stylist
With a 100 programmed stitches, the Stylist has everything you need to let your creativity run wild. This multi-functional Singer sewing machine does it all. Bed sheets, quilts or even party dresses can be sewn using the Stylist. I for one don’t really like the idea of only having presets on a sewing machine. This not only limits my creativity, it means that at a certain point I’ll grow bored of the machine.
Thankfully, the Stylist took the word stylist to a whole new high. I was not only able to fiddle with the width of the stitches, I could actually control the length of each individual stitch too. This is not one of your conventional mechanical sewing machine so depending on your experiences with sewing machines, you may have to fiddle with the machine till you’re used to it. So beginners out there, if you’re looking for a sewing machine where you can just start sewing right off the back, the Stylist probably isn’t what you’re looking for.
There was one annoying flaw about this Singer sewing machine. It gets jammed once in a while. So if you’re intending to use the Stylist in the long run, be prepared to make occasional maintenance and thorough checks so the machine will be your companion for a long long time.

If you’re just starting out or don’t really have that much experience with sewing machines, the Curvy is the way to go. This Singer sewing machine has 30 built-in stitches which may be the reason why it’s so sought after by consumers everywhere. You don’t really need much skill or experience to use this sewing machine. I found it was easy to sew using this machine. There was one minor inconvenience. This sewing machine didn’t have a “drop & sew” bobbin so reloading the bobbin was a hassle.
Overall, this sturdy metal framed sewing machine is one that is built to last. Not only was sewing relatively simple using this sewing machine, thanks to the various built in stitches, I could explore and let my creativity loose whenever I was working on a project. Get more information here.
Once my friend who was a tailor asked me to recommend her a sewing machine that was durable and sturdy enough to be used at her shop I immediately told her about the Singer 4423 sewing machine that I tested some time back.
I used the Singer 4423 for a couple of my daughters dresses and some random patch work.
Truthfully, I was impressed with the precision and accuracy this sewing machine gave me. It didn’t matter if I was using a small piece of fabric or a large sheet of cloth, using the customizable settings and the adjustable three point needle sewing was a breeze. To speed up the sewing process even more, there was even an automatic needle threader and a top drop-in bobbin built into this heavy duty sewing machine.
Working with various materials of different hardness and starchiness isn’t a problem using this Singer sewing machine. As the tension of the thread is adjustable and thanks to the automated presser foot, I know exactly where my stitches would be which is why all my stitches are flawless. All the Singer 4423 sewing machine’s capability makes it a joy to be used by amateurs at homes or professional seamstress at work. Get more information here.
