  • Optimal settings for length and width are automatically adjusted when choosing a stitch. Stitch length and width can be overridden to personalize projects.
  • Center Zigzag Taper
  • When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out of a point.
  • Twin Needle Capability
  • When using a twin needle (optional), selected stitches can be adjusted for twin needle sewing by reducing the stitch width.
  • 13 Needle Positions
  • Needle position can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.
  • Optimum Power Control
  • This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (6-8) fabric layers.
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
  • There are 2 heights to the presser foot lifter. The second height offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.
  • 6-Segment Feeding System
  • This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate feeding.
  • Heavu 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.

Pros:
Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Not Made In China

This machine is for people who actually know how to sew-not the sit and watch their machine do things people.

I tried several types of fabric on it from denim on down to a very slippery thin knit and it sewed perfect stitches at all speeds. It has the same exact features and performance as the $1,000-range standard machines like a generous, but not ridiculous, number of fancy stitches, several button hole styles and a helpful auto threader. It is right up there with my grandmother's Singer that I was finally replacing.

Cons:
Short Power Cord

I received this as a gift. My hubby knew I wanted something a little fancier than the basic singer I already have. Boy did he do a great job picking out a machine...I LOVE IT!! So easy to use, familiar Singer features, smooth sewing and quiet. I spent a whole day having fun sewing. Pretty sure it is going to get a lot of use with all those stitch choices.

Fantastic Machine - I Love It!

I have been sewing all my life but the last 10 years didnt do very much of it. I signed up for a quilting class and for Christmas I got this new sewing machine. I have used it in class and for various other products such as aprons, bllindstiching hems and sewing on buttons and I cant say enough good points about it. It has gotten me back to my roots with sewing and I absolutely enjoy everything I do on it - even including how simple it is to thread and make bobbins.! Thank you, Singer! P.S. I love all the stitches programmed into it and how the length, width, etc., is already set up for me.
