Singer 4423 Sewing Machine Review

The Singer 4423 sewing machine has a high sewing speed of 1,110 stitches per minute which is well above average for other units in this class. This gives you the ability to complete projects quickly and efficiently. This could be an issue for those who are just beginning, but is invaluable for those looking to get their sewing projects completed quicker.

Though there are only 23 stitch patterns available on the Singer 4423 sewing machine, there are enough designs to cover most common sewing projects, including 6 basic stitches, 4 stretch, 12 decorative, and 1 button-hole stitch. The button-hole stitch is fully automatic and one-step; it can also be adjusted. Stitch width is adjustable up to 5mm and length can be adjusted up to 4mm.

The presser foot is higher than normal to help you get through heavier fabrics. The adjustment is automatic so you can move right to light fabrics with little effort, which is helpful for those working on multiple projects. The Singer 4423 sewing machine comes with twin needle capability, but a twin needle is not included with the unit.

Convenience comes in the automatic needle threader and adjustable needle position and tensioning. The automatic drop-in bobbin system makes getting started quick and easy, and the clear bobbin cover allows you to keep an eye on the thread supply.

Design

Though the Singer 4423 sewing machine has a strong feel metal frame, the unit is rather light, weighing in at just 15 pounds. With a built-in carrying handle, this unit becomes easy to transport without too much effort. Though the unit is light, the motor is powerful, giving you the ability to sew through various heavy fabrics. The Singer 4423 sewing machine is also surprisingly quiet for a unit designed for heavy duty usage.

The bed plate is made of stainless steel, which helps feed the fabric and keep it running through smoothly as you sew. A free arm makes it easier to handle tricky items like collars and cuffs, while a drop feed feature lets you get more creative with more detailed projects.


Accessories

The Singer 4423 sewing machine comes with an above average number of accessories. There are 4 feet, including all-purpose, zipper, button hole, and button sewing. Additional feet are available through Singer. Also included as standard are:

  • Needles
  • A foot pedal
  • A lint brush
  • Seam ripper
  • Bobbins
  • Spool holder
  • Spool felt
  • Spool pin
  • A screwdriver
  • A soft dust cover

This sewing machine also includes an introduction DVD, an instructional manual, and a quilting/edge guide.

Singer 4423 Heavy Duty Sewing Machine – Review Summary

The Singer 4423 sewing machine is certainly near the top end when looking for a fast machine that powers through the toughest projects, but won’t break the budget. Since it is so durable, and because you can adjust the pressure foot automatically, it is convenient for taking a day to work on multiple projects. There are many automatic features and an introduction DVD, which make it great for beginners, but the power and speed make it great for those who are more advanced in their technique. The warranty includes 25-years on the head, 2-years on the motor and electronic components, but only 90-days on belts, bulbs and attachments.
