As far as cons are concerned, this piece of equipment does indeed have some drawbacks to its name. For example, some customers complained about the very loud motor noise which made it difficult for them to use it at night or even focus on sewing. This item also comes with included needles in the accessory box but most users have found these needles to be on the weaker and easily breakable side. Some people also complained about the fact that the machine would jam whenever they used it in reverse. A few customers had some issues with the bobbin. One person claimed that her apparatus broke after just a few days but this was an isolated case and not reported by other customers. Lastly, some people also complained about the rather compact work table.
All things considered, the Singer 4411 is still worth the try, especially because of its ease of use and price. With the boxed packaging, users will also receive a detailed and illustrated instructions manual. This item is entirely mechanical which makes it quite user-friendly.

It’s also extremely easy to thread thanks to the auto-threader that inches the thread towards the needle with minimal effort from your side.
Admittedly, it is hard to use this model for quilting, especially since you’re a beginner. More experienced users, however, have been able to successfully use this machine for similar projects that didn’t required a lot of space. A few people claimed that they did manage to finish their quilting projects by folding and refolding their fabrics.

The drop-in bobbin is extremely easy to load thanks to the clear cover that allows you to see exactly what’s happening. The motor on this model is also 60% stronger than on average machines, which is why it is often favored for thicker and heavier fabrics like denim, leather and the likes.
It includes an on-board storage box to store a variety of included accessories like buttonhole foot, quilting guide, all-purpose foot, screwdrivers, needs, spool pin felt, bobbins, dust cover and other similar objects.
