Singer 5511 Review
Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : LOW
Singer 5511 is not a commonly available sewing machine model in US. I haven’t yet managed to find it on sale anywhere in the internet. The main reason why it is not commonly available in US is because there is another model from Singer which is exactly the same as 5511 except for the color. The machine I am talking about is the popular Singer 4411. Now, don’t tell me that you haven’t heard about 4411, because it is one of the best selling heavy duty beginners machine. And it is also the least expensive heavy duty sewing machine you can get in US (It is not entirely heavy duty though). Low price tag and great performance made 4411 popular among beginners.
Now coming back to the review of 5511. I don’t think there is any need for a review here, as you can read my detailed review on Singer 4411 (as both these machines are exactly the same). The only difference between Singer 5511 and 4411 is that the former comes in white color and the later in grey. The difference in color may make some believe that one machine is superior over the other, which is not true. I would recommend you to go with Singer 4411 instead of 5511 as the former is commonly available. Moreover 4411 won’t catch dirt that easily.
