Too compact

Pros: the machine runs really fast, costco took it back without any hassle.
Cons: poor lighting, the automatic threader needed tweeking
Model Number: Heavy Duty 5532
"I purchased the Heavy Duty 5532, because of the name, Heavy Duty. I had to return the machine, because the lighting was not bright enough and it was too compact to manipulate with my arthritic fingers. The instruction manual was very vague, I had to keep calling Singer. Compared to my old singer it paled in comparison."

Best Purchase

Model Number: Singer 5532
"I like the function of Automatic needle. As a senior, needling become difficult. This function helps a lot. It works great with thick materials which other will break or start on and off the machine. I made several alternations since I had the machine. It is easy to use. After registration, Singer website has a lot of Youtube Singer sewing tutoring. It is very easy to follow. Although it might not be your machine model, the foundamentality is same. This is another plus."

Good Machine Great Value

Pros: speed, good basic utility and buttonhole stitches, sews through thick fabric
Cons: worklight is not bright & small coverage area, some decorative stitches look bad
Model Number: 5532
"Compared to other machines in the price range, this one works better than most. As an instructor, I've seen others that can't even sew over joined cotton flannel seams. I've constructed several canvas (10 ounce weight) bags on this machine going through 6 layers of fabric with no problem. The heaviest needle size I tried was size 16. While easy to make a bobbin and thread, the automatic needle threader can be a problem. This is a perfect machine for a beginner or someone who wants a good basic machine for apparel and home decorating projects."

Loved it! But...

Pros: responsive foot pedal, smooth operation even at high speed
Cons: stuck in reverse after 2nd project
Model Number: Singer 5532
"Hemmed jeans -- loved how easily it went through the many layers of denim. Fixed a ripped sheet. Speedy and nice even stitches. Went to hem another pair of jeans -- and the machine is stuck in reverse! It's going back, but loved it when it knew how to sew forward. Plan to exchange for another of the same -- and look forward to decades of great performance."

Great sturdy machine!

Pros: body construction ease of use a workhorse!
Cons: none!
Model Number: Singer 5532
"I bought the Brother XR 1300 and sent it right back and got this one. I love it! It is made like they used to make machines - with a sturdy body and metal plate on the sewing feed. It is simple to use and has a great button hole feature, as well as ample stitches for any fuctions you may need. It is heavy duty and can sew through many layers of heavy fabric. I have been sewing for 48 years and this is just the machine I have been looking for. No computerized functions to deal with (or give you error messages). I highly recommend it for beginners as well as seasoned sewers."
