If you are looking for a Singer sewing machine for schools, for a small business, or just for home use on tough fabrics like denim, upholstery, curtains, and webbing, this is probably the machine you want. Reports of problems with timing seem to be lemon machines, so choose to purchase from a company that will replace yours if you get a DOA machine.
The Singer CG 550 and 590 are made for basic stitching, though they both have some perks over the CG 500. We recommend the CG 550 due to the very reasonable price point and still good amount of features such as 4-step buttonhole function, stretch stitch (see the video above), and free arm option. This machine is stronger and faster than the average home sewing machine.
|Up to 1,100 stitches per minute||You'll sew faster and easier.|
|Top Drop-In Bobbin||Drop in bobbins are much easier to manage than front mounted bobbins.|
|Push Button Reverse Stitch||Makes it easy to reverse stitch at beginning and end of your seams for clean, professional sewing.|
|Accessories Included||All the presser feet you'll need to get started on your dream projects, and of course the user manual.|
|Priced under $300||This is a commercial grade machine made to last.|

Vibrates at higher speeds. Plastic bobbin case. Reports of timing going off quickly.

Read the manual and choose correct thread and needles for your fabric. This will avoid most any problem with the thread snagging or bird nesting.
This is a no-frills workhorse that can sew for classrooms or a small business. The machine is made to be stronger and faster than standard home sewing machines. Reports of problems with timing seem to be lemon machines, so choose to purchase from a company that will replace yours if you get a DOA machine.
This machine is also meant to be a no-frills heavy duty sewing machine. Please be aware that though the picture looks like metal, the body is plastic made to look like metal.

This machine is not a fully industrial strength sewing machine. The plastic needle holder and plastic bobbin holder are close to deal breakers. Also frequent reports of the timing going off mean a lot of frustrated users. We really recommend purchasing the CG 550 instead.
