Questions & Answers for Singer Singer Classic Heavy Duty Mechanical Sewing Machine

Question

Bobbin Discrepancy & Presser Foot / AccessoryIssue

The instruction manual did not come with info on which bobbin to use, so I had to bring the bobbin that came with the machine to the fabric store. The bobbin appeared to be a Class15J, based upon appearance (flat top, size of center hole, two small holes on the top and bottom surfaces, etc). The store clerk agreed. Then I saw on here that this machine is suppose to use the Class 15, however the class 15 bobbin does NOT match what came with the machine. The Class 15 has a smaller center hole, and has a notch coming from the center hole (versus two small holes on the top and bottom surface). Can someone explain this discrepancy? Also, when I went to Singer's website and searched for presser feet and accessories that are compatible with this machine, the search came back with no results....and the Singer Co did not provide a complete answer to the previous poster about specifically which presser feet are compatible. I'd like an answer, since the Singer website is not updated to provide the level of support for this machine versus others. I'm seriously about to return this machine and buy something else.

I looked on the Singer website & couldn't find any info either, but I ordered a whole pack of Singer Class 15 bobbins for this machine & they work fine. As for the feet, the snap on feet from my other machine fit this machine too. So any snap on feet should work.

The 44S does us a bobbin type 15. The bobbin 15J has a very minor curve to the end discs that will not run smoothly in most machines designed for the 15. The slit at the center hole & and the small holes on the surface will not have any effect to your sewing.
I did take a look at the site and saw that you are correct about the listing of accessories & such not being linked correctly to the 44S page. We will address that now and you will be able to see the different other feet that are available for this machine.

will converting the voltage of the machine to 220volts affect any of the working components?

answer 1
It would be safer to use a voltage converter that would change the voltage of an
electric power source than to change the voltage of a machine. If a proper voltage converter is used, there shouldn't be a problem with using the sewing machine.

Linsky,
We advise to use a voltage converter that would change the voltage of an electrical power source and not change the voltage of machine. If proper voltage converter is used you would have no problem with using the Singer classic Sewing Machine.

Can it sew through thick wool blankets?

answer 1
Yes. When I tried mine out I had it sew through 16 layers of fabric and it never flinched! That would be harder on it than a wool blanket.

answer 2
The Singer Classic will be able to handle several layers of wool. With the stronger motor and smooth sewing surface, the fabric will feed smoothly. Of course, you still need to remember some of the guidelines when working with thick materials: use a walking foot (sold separately) and follow the needle, thread, and other guidelines for handling this wonderful material. It will help your project be stress free.

Question

Is this machine too much for a very very beginner?

I'm 47 years old and just now getting the urge to learn to sew (simple summer dresses). So, I'm looking for a machine I can handle, that's easy to use, and I can grow with. I want this to be my first and only machine. Would this machine be too advanced for me????

The 44S Classic could be great for a beginner. It has all the basic stitches that makes up 95% of all sewing time. The top drop-in bobbin is easy to use. An automatic 1-step buttonhole will be great for a beginner and experianced sewing. A Quick-Start Guide will introduce you to your machine and be a useful tool if you need a reminder on how to do something in the future.
The only caution - it does have a strong motor and can sew faster then the machines you might have used back in high school. But, if this is the first machine you have ever owned & used on a regular basis, you should have no problem with it. You will get used to the speed and strength quickly.

Yes you can. In most cases you will need to use a knit type fabric when sewing lingerie, when sewing this type of fabric, you will need to use a ballpoint needle. This needle is included in the pack of needles that comes with the machine, if you need to purchase more, they are a style 2045.

The Classic does not come with a treadle. It is an electric machine.
There are many people that chose to convert a machine to be used as a treadle and you can find info on the internet about doing this. Of course, if you did that this extra strength and speed provided by the stronger motor would be lost.

Not knowing what your sewing table looks like let me say that if it was sold by Singer I see no reason why not though I would check and compare measurements.
I have a five foot office meeting/work table that I drilled a hole into for the plug to the outlet, and a larger hole for the connection to my old machine. The connection for the new machine is smaller.

This is a free arm sewing machine. If the cabinet that you currently own is configured for a free arm sewing machine, then you will be able to sit the machine in this cabinet. If your old machine was a flat bed, then unfortunately this new machine will not fit in a flat bed cabinet.
