  • Drop Feed

  • Programmable Needle Up/Down
  • The programmable needle up/down feature is vital for quilters when piecing together patchworks. Select to have the needle stop in the down position when appliquéing, quilting or pivoting fabric. When removing the fabric from the machine, the needle must be raised to the highest position.
  • Electronic Twin Needle Control 
  • Twin needle sewing creates two parallel rows of stitching, adding a decorative touch to any project. With the electronic twin needle control, stitches are automatically adjusted for twin needle sewing in a snap. Full instructions are included in the manual.
  • Automatic Tension
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being used.
  • Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control 
  • The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is automatic. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot adjustments.

  • 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 Tie-Off Function
  • This function reinforces the start and end of seams for stronger stitching.
  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
  • Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
  • DC Motor
  • Provides instant start up and stop with no casting, for accurate and precise stitch placement
  • 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

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

I recently bought the 7469 Confidence Quilter as a replacement to a Curvy 8763. Although I loved the Curvy I found I outgrew it quickly and found a few features on it I never quite got use to. After using the Confidence Quilter I found that it feels more natural to me. It's easy to use. Runs smoother and quieter. It's an absolute joy to use and so much fun! Three features I found I like over the Curvy is the automatic needle threader, the presser foot lifter and the needle up or down stop position. This is an absolute must for quilting and other craft projects! I also feel there is more clearance between the machine head and the base at the needle area. Anyone looking for the next step up from a beginners sewing machine should take a look at the Confidence Quilter. The bonus quilting table is quite nice! My Curvy has found a new home to a beginner sewer. She is as thrilled own it as I am to sewing with my Confidence!

For the first few months, the machine worked great. Now, in less than 6 months I am looking at tripple digit repairs when I have done a minimal amount of sewing. I haven't even needed to put a new needle on it yet.

I wish I would have read the reviews. This is the last singer I will ever purchase. Now, if only I could get my money back on this one.

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

From a child i made most of my own clothes. My mother taught me on a Singer. As life got busy I stopped. Then I experienced cancer and many health problems which necessitated going on permanent disability and not being able to do even many everyday things like cooking or cleaning. I discovered a ministry making quilts for cancer patients and was excited over the possibility of participating. My husband purchased the Confidence Quilter and I found I could still sew!! There are so few things I can still do. The machine is very responsive and easy to control. It is fairly easy to use all the options included. I can sew whenever I can, 5 min. or 2 hours, anytime at my own pace and at home. This machine has made it possible to go back to a hobby I love when I have lost the ability to do so much. Thank you for coming back, improving and making Singer a more reliable machine. I am also making outfits and doll clothes for my grandchildren. Love this machine.

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

From my mother's 1940's machine, to my first graduation present in the 70's, I have always counted on my Singer. Three years ago I had to replace my machine and did not choose wisely. I have just replaced it with the Singer Confidence Quilter and I could not be more pleased! It is very easy to use and has ample table room - the extension table is a convenient feature when sewing large projects. The guides are well placed - I like the 1/4" mark. The bobbin's see through plate is handy and it is very simple to thread. I like the needle threader, too - it makes threading the needle a snap. There are so many sewing patterns to chose from! I don't know how I sewed without the needle stop position selector - what a great feature. This was definitely a wise purchase. Thank you Singer!

Incomplete and inaccurate instructions frustrating

Pros:
Straight Sewing And Zigzag Worked Well, Good Features If They Work Properly
Cons:
Not All Features Work As They Should., Cannot Freely Embroider

I also am disappointed in the free embroidary sewing. The instructions to the other reviews say the directions are on page 12. I tried those directions and they don't work. After lowering the feed dog, I still can't move the work piece around. I tried removing the foot altogether and still can't freely move the work. I have been sewing for over 50 years and this is the first machine that I cannot free embroidary sew.

I also had difficulty with the blind hem stitch. It skipped many stiches. I had to redo it multiple times. Straight sewing worked well as did zizzag, multistich zigzaz and double overlocking stitch.
