Great product and service. This is an excellent machine: versatile, resilient, silent and compact. The 10 years warranty give you piece of mind. Definitively recommended.

I purchased this singer sewing machine to replace my John Lewis sewing machine. I was never that impressed with my old machine, when I received my new Singer machine, wow! It’s effortless to setup and start sewing. I love using it, it smooth running. I can’t wait to start my next project.

I have been thinking I should purchase an overlocker for a while so finally bit the bullet . Mainly chose for price , then read reviews to back up my decision. Having always owned old singers 201k with a potted motor I was shocked at the very plastic feel to it , however it does the job ,somewhat noisy and much faster than I am used to but I’ll get used to it.Threading did seem daunting but thanks to you tube I’m a past master after just one day ! However I am happy with my purchase. I think though, in future I’d go and physically see one at a shop prior to buying. Customer service was excellent and arrived next day so I would always order if possible from singer.

I have enjoyed sewing for many (many many!) years and have a Singer machine. I bought this one for my 23 year old daughter as an upgrade from a much smaller one she’s used since being about 12. It’s a very nifty machine indeed - easy to use, solidly built and will last her many years I’m sure. Excellent value for money too!

I purchased this machine for heavy duty sewing that I needed for thick curtains, deck chair material etc. This machine was used with two days of purchase on some heavy curtains and the machine coped very well. The process of order/payment and delivery was fast, I was kept informed regarding delivery. I also order a walking foot at the same time which came with the machine. Thank you

After much reading and contemplating bought the overlocker. Fast delivery delighted with the machine. Works like a dream. So fast and powerful. Don’t be put off by reviews that say it’s difficult to thread. It’s not. Read the instructions and follow step be step. After a couple of tries I nailed it.

Review by Dawn W
It is a tough decision choosing which overlocker to purchase. I am so pleased with this model. It was within the budget I set myself, does exactly what I want and has been reliable every time I have used it. I have had it a year now, and I am still absolutely thrilled. If you feel overwhelmed when you first use it - there are some great youtube videos that will have you confident in no time at all. Thank you Singer for such a great and prompt service.

Delivery service excellent. Only used machine for a small amount of time thus far but easy to use. Struggling with automatic needle threader!
Review by Ros M
Love the 5523. Spent some time researching heavy duty machines and finally opted for this one – well Singer does have an excellent reputation! I haven’t been disappointed. Apart from being well made, it has a great array of stitches and the fact that I have control over the sewing speed is a big plus. The automatic needle threader makes light work of the task too. It’s straightforward to use and works extremely well, sewing through thicker fabric with ease.
Review by Kay M
The computerised nature of this machine has allowed me to machine sew again. It's compact and surprisingly light, the features on it work perfectly for me and I'm very much looking forward to expanding my repertoire of things I can do - and adding deeper pockets into all of my clothing. In fact the only negative thing I have to say about this machine was that finding the dimensions for it online was a nightmare so I was a little worried it wouldn't fit in my storage space. The actual measurements of the sewing machine are H:32cm, L:40cm, D:20cm
