Singer 3337 Vs 2263 Comparison In Detail


Singer 3337 and 2263 come with similar features. They are also placed in the same segment. 2263 has been in the market for quite some time now. 3337 is comparatively a new comer. Both belong to the 'Simple' category of sewing machines rolled out by Singer.  We all know how popular 2263 is, let us see how this one compares with the 3337.

Singer 3337 Vs 2263 - Major Feature Differences

You can't even compare the design, they are entirely different. Compared to 2263, 3337 has an entirely different design set up. But still, the control dials are placed in similar locations (stitch selection and stitch length dials). 

Built-in Stitches

The most notable difference is in the number of built-in stitches. Singer 3337 comes with 29 built-in stitches which also include a 1-step buttonhole. 2263 on the other hand comes with 23 built-in stitches including a 4-setp buttonhole. In simple words, 3337 has 6 extra built-in stitches in comparison with 2263.

From beginners' point of view, one important thing to note is that 3337 has a 1-step buttonhole, which is much more beginner friendly. 2263 comes with a 4-step buttonhole, which requires 4 steps to finish a buttonhole.

Bobbin 

The next important difference is that 3337 comes with a top drop-in bobbin which is much more beginner friendly than the front loading bobbin of 2263. Changing the bobbin will be time consuming on sewing machines with front loading bobbin.

Editor comment

Both machines come with automatic needle threader. The stitch quality is more or less the same on both machines. However, the extra stitches and top drop-in bobbin give Singer 3337 a slight edge over 2263. Singer 2263 is a very good machine on its own right. It still is one of the best performers in the segment, but in direct comparison with 3337, the former has started to show its age.
