Singer CG590 Review

Singer CG590 Review In Detail

You will love Singer CG590 if you love mechanical sewing machines. However Singer could have included couple more built-in stitches.

Editor rating


One good thing about Singer CG590 is that it is jam proof (almost), there is no thread breakage either. The machine easily adjusts to thickness changes. Especially when you hem the bottom of jeans, the stitches come out nice and consistent. You can use the built-in serging stitch for giving seams.

Singer CG590 can sew around 1,100 stitches/min which is pretty fast. It sews through almost any kind of fabric effortlessly. It is stable as well. The machine is not 100% metal, there are some unavoidable plastic parts. You normally won't find sewing machines with box feed in this segment. Thankfully Singer CG590 has box feed, which ensures consistent feeding.

Drawbacks

Less number of built-in stitches.

The LED light is not really bright, it is slightly dim for our liking.

There is no one-step buttonhole.

Pros

•    Good performance
•    Durable
•    Perfect stitches
•    No jams

Cons

•    Work light is dim
•    Less number of built-in stitches

Review Verdict

Overall Singer CG590 is a precision made machine designed for high performance and consistent quality. You will love this if you sew a lot. It will be a great back up machine for advanced sewers. Performance wise it is right up there. Another heavy duty machine you can consider is the Singer 4432, which has 32 built-in stitches and has all other features of this machine.
