Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 17reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Machine! I am a professional seamstress of 32+ years. I teach sewing classes to adults as well as children. I purchased this machine for students to learn to sew and it has proven to be an excellent beginner machine as well as advanced. The girls love to embellish their projects with the decorative stitches. Operating the machine is VERY easy! It also comes with an instructional video that I show in my introductory classes that is extremely helpful not only to operate the machine but touches on basic sewing. I would not hesitate to use this machine for professional services if my regular machine was out for repair. 01/07/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by very good performance and value My first impression of the Singer 5500 was its sleek, handsome look, logically arranged controls that are easy to figure out, and things placed where they should be. The stitch selector works well and is intuitive and easy to operate. I checked the quick start guide first, which I thought was well done, then read the operating manual, which was another story. As others have commented, I found the manual a bit confusing and lacking informative detail in some areas. Also too many languages, too much going on and not sure where to look next. A major competing model in price and function (I have one of these too and like it a lot) comes with a separate English manual that's very well done. What makes up for it though is the included DVD instructional which I think is VERY well produced. Although it features the functions of several models, it packs a lot of information that can apply to any machine. It's easy to watch and doubles as a basic sewing tutorial. The competition does not offer this, so score one big one for Singer here.Turning the machine on, I notice that the LED light is ok but not as bright as it might be. I prefer the competing model I have which has two LEDs and a more pleasing daylight color. But no big deal, it's fine. The auto-threader is a major advance, but read the manual (even better, watch the DVD) and expect to goof a couple times until you understand how it actually works. You'll wonder how you ever did without it. The needle MUST be in 00 position which is the default when you turn on the power, and needle completely up or it won't work as designed.As far as sewing it's great, quiet, feels sturdy, stitches are tight, no problems at all. The decorative stitches all worked well, and even better when I adjusted the tension (watch your DVD!) and added a bit of home-made stabilizer. It went through several layers of heavy materiel easily, but I was using the right needle, tension, and thread. Don't use old or cheap (hairy) thread, it won't like it but that's true of any machine. The feed dogs have a good bite and work well. They don't drop like they do on my similarly-priced competing brand, but a darning plate is included.The extension table is sturdy and very useful, and the hard dust cover is a nice touch. The included accessories are basic, but then so was the price I paid so I'm thrilled overall with my deal. I had one minor issue: one of the tabs that snap the accessory bin to the body was broken. Although it stayed in place fairly well anyway, Singer offered to replace it via email immediately so I'm very happy with the way things turned out. I did try to phone and yes, there was quite a wait. I didn't.So far, I'm lovin' this strong sturdy, good-looking machine with lots of functions and labor savers like the built in thread cutter. I think it's a really fine deal and a great value. 09/13/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Grand Daughter Present This machine was a gift to our Grand Daughter because she was making clothing by hand. She says she loves it and has been learning all the functions over the last two weeks. We will see. 03/09/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Sewing Machine The first time I used it, it broke and I had to have it fixed but since it was fixed it has been working wonderful. I LOVE my machine. 04/23/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Not what Singer used to be! Got this for my daughter 1 1/2 yrs ago as a gift. I have an older (mid 60's) singer that will out perform this machine any day. It works 'ok', but you have to pamper it to get it to work. Not like the older one's you can just thread and go.She started getting an error message and I called Singer. I was on hold for 45 minutes. The woman was very rude, and told me "It's your problem. You're not using it right! You can't just expect the new machines to run like the old ones." I will not buy another Singer new. Very disappointed in this maching and Singer. 06/04/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I got this machine a few months ago to start my moms quilt for her Christmas present and it has met every expectation I could have had and the different stitches are just to cool!! 10/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great sewing maching. It's been a long time since I sat down with a sewing machine and this one made getting back into the swing of things extrememly easy. The instructional video is very helpful and a great refresher. Would definitely recommend this to everyone. 06/18/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by It's a efficient machine. I would have I would have liked a light on the machine for better sight of what you are sewing. Also the cover is a little funky, it still allows dust to get in. 06/05/2013
