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.

If you mean "mend" denim - the Singer Heavy Duty/Classic is the perfect home machine to use when working with denim. With the stronger motor and smooth sewing surface, the leather/fabric will feed smoothly. Of course, you still need to remember the guidelines when working with denim: use the correct size needle and thread, watch speed when approching multi-layer sections and other guidelines for handling denim.

Most new home machines, most of the time, will not need to be oiled. But, if you do a lot of sewing or are working with a lot of flannel, polar fleece, heavy fabrics and the like you may want to put 2 - 3 drops of sewing machine oil in the bobbin case and needle bar area.
If your machine manual does not include instructions on oiling, your machine has been pre-lubricated at the factory and will not need additional lubricating.
We also recommend that you have your machine tuned-up by a qualified SINGER technician every 3 to 4 years to keep it in good running order.
You can contact our Customer Service Dept or visit the www.singerco.com website for more info.

You can oil the machine yourself, but every 3-4 years, Singer recommends taking the machine to a technician to be tuned. The manual that comes with this machine includes instructions on how to oil it.

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.

Question

Will this machine fit into an older Singer sewing cabinet?

answer 1
I haven't a sewing cabinet. I use a five foot office work table that I have drilled holes into for the cord.
However, I see no reason why this would not fit into a cabinet.
I have finally begun to use the machine though threading is so different than what I had been doing most my life I still have not mastered it myself. I sewed until something made the thread broke; then I was 'dead in the water;' humiliating.
It is very difficult to thread and the automatic threading is for the needle itself, and useless. The instructions say to thread from the back--the eye-hole faces you--but this is very difficult. It worked for my friend to thread from the front.

It really depends on your cabinet.
The Classic does have a mounting bracket.
Here are instructions on how to secure your machine to a cabinet.

If you turn the machine over, you will see 2 mounting brackets in the center base of the machine; these are screw openings where the mounting bolts will fit. You will need to purchase 2 mounting screws. These mounting screws will fit in the openings located in the base of the machine and then will attach to the base of your cabinet. You can purchase the mounting screws from one of the following locations. The part number is 969074.
Please contact your local Singer Sewing Specialty Retailer. To find a location near you go to our website at www.singerco.com and click on “Where to Buy” and then enter your zip code.
If you have already contacted a local dealer, one of the following Singer Service Centers may be able to help you. All offer mail order service. If you give them a call, they can provide pricing, shipping costs and product availability.

These are sister machines.

How deep is the throat on this machine? Do you think that I could fix horse winter blankets with this machine?

The 44S would certainly be able to handle the thickness of a horse blanket with proper attention to the needle and thread type used. “Practice first” is always a good motto. Caution should always be used when about to sew multiple layers (such as an overlapping seam or hem).
From the needle to the ‘tower’ of the machine is 6.25 inches. The height is 4.5 inches.
Also, if the damage is in the center of the blanket you will need to plan on how to maneuver the blanket to be able to mend the damage. Reference some of the web sites or books about quilting that offer suggestions on rolling/folding a large quilt to fit into a machine for the final quilting process.

Question

Can you use both plastic and metal bobbins?

After reviewing ALL mechanical Singer machines for three days on various sites, I've noticed myself and many others use both in our Singer machines with no problems whatsoever. Mine has just finally bit the dust after 21 years and am searching for a replacement. I won't EVEN consider a computerized machine as the repair(s) are way too costly and I don't need all the "bells and whistles" for what projects I do.

Singer machines, in general, have 3 different types (or classes) of bobbins. A machine will always need to use the same class of bobbin.
Some classes come in both plastic and metal. It is always recommended that you use the same type of bobbin that came with your machine originally.
So, if your machine comes with a plastic class 15 bobbin then that is the style you should use. Most new, mechanical Singer machines (including the Singer Classic) use this type of bobbin. Always reference the instruction manual or Singer’s team if you are unsure.

Unfortunately, the chainstitch is not available on this machine.
At this time, there are no full size Singer machines that have this stitch. There are some smaller 'mending' type machines and a Singer serger that have this stitch.
