It's fresh white design brings something different to the range without compromise. The Singer 5523 have a very strong cast aluminium body to support its superior sewing power and very strong motor. Faster than a standard sewing machine and without many of the bells and whistles, this machine is a utility machine and it is here to do the job, where power, speed and precision is required.

The Singer Heavy Duty sewing machines have been around for years now and have a fantastic reputation, they are by far the most popular machine sold in the UK outselling its closes rival by almost double. The Singer 5523 Heavy Duty although it is touted as a utility machine it still has a huge array of stitches and features not found on a straight stitch industrial machine.

The 5523 boast 23 stitches including Zig-Zag, Blindhem, Stretch stitches and Buttonholes as well as a built in light and auto needle threader. The Singer 5523 Sewing machine is perfect for a busy environment to learn with and develop as a machinist.

Top loading jam proof bobbin, easy changeable domestic sewing machine needle clamp and simple lay in threading system. This machine has all the benefits of a Heavy Duty machine but with the ease of a standard domestic machine, it is so simple to use.

Built-In Stretch Stitches
Specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams, especially useful when sewing on knitwear and superstretch fabrics.

Adjustable Stitch Length and Width
Each stitch function can be adjusted to personalize length or width.

One-Step Automatic Buttonholes
Buttonhole sewing is a one step simple process, providing reliable results.

3 Needle Positions
Needle position can be changed for individual projects, left, centre or right such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.

Top Drop-in Bobbin
As well as the loading bobbin the hook unit which carries the thread is rotary system making for bets stitching results at faster speeds.

Automatic Needle Threader
After effortlessly threading the machine this feature automatically threads the eye of the needle!

Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer.

6-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate feeding.

Box Feed
This is a feed dog motion that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the 6-point feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.

Aluminium Frame
The internal skeleton of the Singer Heavy Duty is metal. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.

Electronic Foot Speed Controller
A control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (6-8) layers of fabric. Guarantees consistent sewing speed with no jump starts from super slow to super fast stitching.

On Board Storage
Storage area means accessories are always easily accessible.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have been using a Tradition 2273 for years, but I wanted a machine with a bit more oomph. This fits the bill completely - it’s everything I hoped it would be and more. Fast motor, which really helps when overcast stitching edges; really nice decorative stitches; easy to use and my favourite feature is the drop-in bobbin which is great, as I can see when it’s running low. It’s also quieter than my last sewing machine. I am delighted with it!

    This machine is GREAT. It is very easy to use, sews multiple layers of material and is very compact.
    It is perfect for my Upcycling ventures. I have yet to try all the features but I am looking forward to the 'self threading', I am hoping it will make me a cup of tea soon, but I can't find that in the manual!
