Singer 44s Vs 4411 Comparison In Detail


In the past, we had to shell out a lot of money to get a heavy duty sewing machine of our liking. Now things have changed, thanks to affordable heavy duty sewing machines from Singer and Janome. Singer's 44 series of sewing machines have been a revolution in the affordable heavy duty machine category. Singer's 44 series starts with 4411, 4423, 4432, 4452 and so on. Singer 4411 gave sewers the option to own a heavy duty sewing machine without spending a fortune. The machine became an instant hit, thanks to the extremely powerful motor and affordability. Singer 44s comes somewhere in between the above said models. So the comparison between 44s and 4411 will be worth having a look. 

Singer 44s Vs 4411 - Major Feature Differences

The obvious difference that you can spot is the color. Singer 44s comes in white (it sure is one of the most beautiful sewing machines I have ever seen) and 4411 comes in grey color. In addition to this, there is a measurement marking in front of 44s, which is absent on 4411. These are the differences that you can pick straightaway. But there are couple of other very important feature differences.

Built-in Stitches

Singer 44s comes with 23 built-in stitches, which include an easy to use one-step buttonhole. 4411 on the other hand, comes with only 11 built-in stitches including a four-step buttonhole. The advantage of extra decorative stitches help 44s in providing more stitch variety. Also in my opinion, the one-step buttonhole on 44s is more beginner friendly than four-step buttonhole on 4411. In one-step buttonhole, you can finish the buttonhole in a single step, the other requires four.

Automatic Needle Threader 

Advantage 44s here as well. 44s comes with an automatic needle threader which saves eye strain. Singer 4411 on the other hand misses out on this feature. You will have to thread the needle the way we used to thread in good old days.

Editor comment

Both machines can go through multiple layers of thick fabrics like denim with ease, thanks to the extra powerful motor. The motor capable of delivering 1,100 stitches/min is a beast (it has almost serger like speed). However, I would rate Singer 44s slightly above 4411 in terms of ease of use, which is mainly due to the user friendly features like one-step buttonhole and automatic needle threader (and the extra stitches). Singer 4411 is not that far behind either, just that it misses out on couple of features in comparison with 44s. If you take 4411 alone, it still is a quality machine in the segment. Its popularity is a testimony for that.

Actually, Singer 44s is more similar to 4423 than 4411. We have already done a comparison of Singer 44s and 4423. You can read it here.
