When looking for a good beginner sewing machine having something that is simple to set up is a must. This Singer sewing machine is a great example of this yet it still has many features and sewing stitches to separate it from the most basic machines out there.
Our Singer Simple 3232 review
Frustration free set up
The big selling point with this machine is that it has frustration free set up. That means that in theory you should be well placed to be ready to be sewing in no time.
The machine is definitely easy to use with automatic needle threading and simple stitch selection using the dials on the front of the machine. It has a completely automatic button hole maker too which is great for if you need them and there are 4 snap on presser feet so nice and easy to use.
What I’d have liked to have seen would have been a top loading bobbin too – I find the front loading ones sometimes aren’t frustration free!

What others have to say
As well as giving my own thoughts I really like to scour the internet to get a general view of what people have said about this machine.
It has been reviewed over 100 times from what I’ve found, and it currently scores around 4.0 out of 5 so it’s definitely not as popular as some of the other beginner sewing machines I reviewed. However it’s still a respectable score and so I think definitely worthy of consideration.
The positive reviews tend to focus on the fact that it is great for beginners and kids to learn to sew.
The negative thoughts seem to be about the bobbin – many would prefer it to be a top loading design rather than the front loading.
This is a good step up from the most basic machines with only a few stitches and features. What makes this machine special though is the fact that it is so easy to use – everything is simple and straight forward from threading the needle to stitch selection. You’ll be sewing in no time with this one!
