Fantastic service from this retailer in Whitley Bay. Ordered in the afternoon and it was delivered the next afternoon. A couple of phone calls made in deciding which machine and I was answered straight away. Machine is so easy to use. Really good quality. I would say don't shop anywhere else.

Very pleased overall! Great service and next day delivery. The singer overlocker is my absolute baby and runs so smoothly. Relatively easy to thread, there are always videos online of how to do so anyway. But definitely do read the instructions.

What a little beauty this machine is. I’m really getting to know all of its capabilities. It’s smooth, versatile and with the help of a few you tube clips - quite easy to get to grips with. I’ve sewn different fabrics and all have an excellent outcome. I’m experimenting with the embroidery patterns which I will definitely be using to personalise my finished items. I personally would definitely recommend due to its reasonable price and many different programmes.

Amazing fast delivery! Works like a dream compared to my old machine. My husband likes it too!

A brilliant little machine. Hard working and so quiet. Much quieter than my previous machine (not a Singer). It has all the oomph needed to sew through thick layers of fabric, but is still capable of working on lighter more delicate fabrics. I would heartily recommend this machine to anyone.

I've started sewing again and I chose the Singer Fashion Mate because I used to use my mums old Singer machine when I was younger and I knew it was a good brand. The machine is itan easy to use and has all the features I need for everyday sewing and making new garments. Thank you Singer.

This machine is so simple, i have had it hang on tougher fabrics but it managed to sew a leather coin purse no problem and with most of the bits I have made the machine didn't need me at all, it pretty much does everything except press its own pedal lol

Love it, love it!! Super bright light, quiet when sewing and the self threading needle option is just brilliant.

Fabulous machine, perfect for people like me who are inexperienced sewers. My first machine, which I still have is a 1930s refurbished Singer, I then updated to a little known brand and it broke down within 2 yrs, so I came back to Singer; you can't get a better brand.
Review by Becky
I love this machine! It's so easy to use even for someone with limited experience like me. The machine is easy to carry as it is lightweight, the manual is clear and easy to follow. I'm still trying to work out what all the stitches are for and how to use them, so a stitch guide would have been a nice addition, but you can find stitch guides online without too much trouble, so I don't mind too much. Overall it's a great machine for someone who is still gaining confidence in sewing. I would definitely recommend it.

I did a lot of research before choosing this sewing machine and I’m delighted with my choice. I was looking for a top loading bobbin and a robust, straightforward reliable machine. So far all’s great! 5 stars for Singer customer service too. Amazingly quick delivery, great price (and thank you for removing the vat to Jersey without been asked).

Bought this to replace my old 50+ year old Singer which I sadly had to leave behind in Canada. There are a few modern updates that I'm excited to use but it seems the same as the sturdy, smooth running machine that I left behind. I didn't abandon my old machine, just as a friend had passed it on to me, I passed it on to a friend. Expecting years of reliable service from my new trusty Singer.
Review by Eve B
Great machine used in my bag making work. Zips through all Manner of heavy layers with ease. Small but sturdy and a real work horse. Bought an extension table separately. Highly recommended for no frills tough jobs.
Review by Anne H
So pleased with my new 5523 machine it does everything that my old inherited Singer machine didn’t. The manual is easy to follow most impressed with the automatic needle threader, I’ve tried a few of the options- blind hemming, sewing on a button, making a button hole, zigzag stitching and more than happy with my purchase.
