    Default Urgent- can anyone tell me if this is a good sewing machine?

    Catch of the day have a Singer Simple 3229 sewing machine on sale from $399 to $179- not sure if I can post the link?

    ETA: I cant find any reviews on this one so I dont think I'll get it.

    I have found another Singer Talent 3221 sewing machine, which has gotten good reviews so Im now thinking of this one. Its $199 down from $500 plus free delivery.

    Check other sites for a more realistic price. Sometimes they up the retail price to make it seem like a great deal
