  • Automatic Tacking Stitch Function
  • Tie-off decorative stitches with just a push of a button. With 4 tiny tacking stitches the start and end of the pattern is reinforced. This ensures quality stitching and prevents unraveling.

  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.

  • Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
  • Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer
  • 6-Segment Feeding System with Box Feed 
  • This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate fabric feeding. Box Feed is a feed dog motion that moves the feed dogs in a box motion, rather than the historic arc motion. Box motion assures perfect feeding throughout the entire feed process, as the feed dogs are always in perfect and equal contact with the fabric and presser foot.
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame
  • The internal skeleton of the sewing machine. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
  • Direct Drive
  • The needle bar is geared straight from the motor, rather than from a drive bar across the machine. This makes the machine more powerful and durable.
  • Thread Cutter
  • Located on the machine for precise thread cutting, eliminating the extra step of cutting thread with scissors
  • Snap-On Presser Feet
  • Easily change presser feet without a screwdriver
  • Soft-Sided Dust Cover
  • Keep the sewing machine free of dust and debris while not in use
  • On Board Storage
  • Have easy access to accessories while sewing
  • Thirteen Needle Positions
  • The position of the needle can be adjusted for individual projects including inserting zippers, cording and topstitching.
  • 25-Year Limited Warranty

  • FREE Accessories Included 
  • All-Purpose Foot, Zipper Foot, Buttonhole Foot with Underplate, Blind Hem Foot, Satin Stitch foot, Pack of Needles, Bobbins (Class 15J), Thread Spool Caps, Auxiliary Spool Pin, Spool Pin Felt, Screwdriver, Seam Ripper/Lint Brush, Soft-Sided Dust Cover, Quick Start Guide, Machine Intro DVD, Instruction Manual, Power Cord, Foot Pedal

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality

I have always sewn on a Singer Sewing Machine, when my old singer quit after 40+ years I went back for a Singer and am very happy with the new one.

I bought this last year in May and didn't start taking it out of the box until this spring for I also have a Brother, Janome Emerald Husqvarna and Brother Lock. Since I got laid off I started sewing more to make extra money, I was a bit disappointed that it didn't sound right in the beginning and the thread get crumpled a lot at the bottom, so I just set it aside and use what I have due to downtime using. Dont' get me wrong, I love singer my Dad was a professional tailor back in the days and used only Singer, and I learned sewing when I was a kid from a vintage all metal none electric singer sewing machine. Maybe I just got a little lemon, but haven't given up on singer even if my Brother machine & serger never failed me.

The first year I had my sewing machine, which I had not sewed on it a few projects, 2 pillows made. The the whole bobbin casing pops out. Had fixed. Then brought home and started sewing on it again and the bobbin case pops out and all of my stitches are messed up this time. Now I am debating on where to take it to have them fix it. The place I took it before couldn't fix it. I also found a singer electronic sewing machine an older one and the bobbin case had a problem like my new sewing machine. One time singer use to be a good sewing machine, now I have many doubts about their sewing machines. I gave over $800.00 for that sewing machine thinking it was a better one. In my opinion its not and I am disappointed in the singer company.

Poor Service Program And Help Center

The cost of basic service is high. The nearest service center it an hour away. I could go on and on about the disappointment, but I'm just disgusted. The machine was a Christmas gift and now its junk. I should be able to repair minor tension problems, but even in 2014 the directions offer little or no help and there are no videos on you tube or this website for troubleshoot these problems.

Could Use A Better Stitch Guide / Quick Reference Chart

It was a very reasonable price. Super easy to use. I love that it has serveral stretch stitches and button hole styles. I like making things for the house and clothes for the kids. This machine makes it easy and decorative. I'm having fun trying out all the stitches.
