Singer 4411 Review

Singer 4411 Review In Detail

Singer 4411 is a quality entry level heavy duty machine. However the lack of a 1-step buttonhole and automatic needle threader may be a downer for some. 

Editor rating


Have you ever wished for a heavy duty sewing machine that is affordable and of decent quality? Singer 4411 is a good answer. Singer 4411 is only a beginners heavy duty sewing machine. It is equipped with almost all the features that a beginner needs. The machine comes with 11 built-in stitches (denoted by the last two digits in the model number) including 6 Basic Stitches, 4 Decorative Stitches and a 4-step buttonhole. There are 2 more variants of this sewing machine namely 4423 and 4432 with 23 stitches and 32 stitches respectively. The  difference is in the number of built-in stitches and couple of other basic features.

Coming back to 4411 review. The machine is equipped with a powerful motor capable of delivering 1,100 stitches per minute. Now, this motor is really powerful. To know that, check the SPMs of other sewing machines in the same price segment, mostly the maximum you will get is 850 or 900 stitches per minute. So you can clearly say that the motor of Singer 4411 is way more powerful than most of its competitors. The extra power helps the machine to sew through heavy duty fabrics. The machine comes with top drop-in bobbin with clear cover, so that you can always keep an eye on the thread supply.

The extra high presser foot lifter is always handy while sewing multiple layers of fabrics. Cuffs and collar can be accessed by converting the machine into free arm. An on board storage space is provided for storing away the accessories. The stitch selection is done using dials. Stitch width and length are also adjustable. For inserting zippers or cording, you can make use of the 3 needle positions available on the machine. Reverse lever is provided for sewing in reverse and for reinforcing stitches. Presser foot pressure can be manually adjusted. The machine has 25 year limited warranty cover.

Other features include

•    Heavy duty metal frame
•    Stainless steel bed plate
•    Snap-on presser feet
•    Drop feed for free motion

Ease of Use

The overall build quality is pretty good, yet there are some plastic parts. The thing we are impressed the most is the stitch quality and power. The stitch quality is excellent and the machine can easily go through 8 layers of denim. The machine is easy to thread as well (if you have any doubt, watch some YouTube videos, the user manual is not that great).

Drawbacks

4-step buttonhole is not really ideal for beginners. Singer could have included a 1-step buttonhole.

User manual could be more detailed.

No automatic needle threader to thread the needle. You will have to do it manually.

Pros

  • Quite powerful
  • Good stitch quality
  • Affordable

Cons

  • No 1-step buttonhole
  • No automatic needle threader

Editor Comments

From the point of view of a beginner, Singer 4411 ticks almost all the boxes except for the buttonhole stitch and automatic needle threader. We feel you can overlook that as it is very affordable. Its performance with multiple layers of denim is not that bad either. As an overall package, Singer 4411 is a good beginner machine to consider. If you want a sewing machine that has the features that 4411 lacked, you can always have a look at Singer 4423.
