  • 310 Built-In Stitches
  • Just about any stitch you could ever need including basic, stretch, decorative and alphanumeric. Includes a removable stitch chart.
  • 10 Fully Automatic 1-Step Buttonholes
  • Buttonhole sewing is a one-step simple process providing reliable results every time.
  • Built-In Stretch Stitches
  • Specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams, especially useful when sewing on knitwear and super-stretch fabrics.
  • 2 Built-In Alphabets
  • Personalize projects by adding a monogram, name or phrase with the built-in block or script style alphabets, both available in upper and lower case.
  • Large Back-Lit LCD Screen
  • Provides clear and easy viewing of stitch functions including stitch width and length, tension settings, and the recommended presser foot.
  • Four Memory Modules
  • Four Memory Modules each hold up to 20 entries. Place names, simple phrases and decorative stitch sequences in each of these four modules, then retrieve them anytime you want to personalize your projects.
  • Mirror Imaging and Elongation Function
  • With just a touch of a button selected stitches can be mirrored imaged, adding even more stitch variety. Select the Elongation button and select stitches can be made up to 5 times longer.
  • Electronic Auto Pilot
  • Unplug the foot control, press the Start button and the machine sews. You are still in complete control over the speed - just slide the Speed Limiting Lever to the desired speed.
  • Programmable Needle Up/Down
  • The needle can be programmed to stop in the highest up position when your foot is lifted from the controller, making it easier to remove fabric from the machine. The needle can also be programmed to stop in the down position which is ideal for pivoting, appliquéing and quilting.
  • One-Touch Electronic Automatic Thread Cutter
  • Press the thread cutter button and the machine automatically trims threads when you are done sewing.
  • Horizontal Threading
  • Quality stitches begin with proper thread delivery. Placing the thread spool in the horizontal position allows for the thread to feed more evenly, reducing poor stitch formation and thread breakage.
  • Automatic Needle Threader
  • Sewing’s biggest timesaver! This feature makes threading the eye of the needle quick and painless.
  • Top Drop-in Bobbin
  • This mechanism incorporates a magnet-type vertical axis rotating hook that ensures smooth, jam-resistant sewing. The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.
  • Adjustable Stitch Length & Width
  • Automatic settings for length & width can be overridden to personalize length choice.
  • Center Zigzag Taper
  • When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This feature is especially valuable when appliquéing, because it provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out from a point.
  • Automatic Locking Stitch Function
  • Tie-off decorative and utility stitches with just a push of a button. Three tiny tacking stitches, reinforce patterns and stitches to prevent unraveling.
  • Automatic Reverse
  • Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew in reverse and reinforce the stitch.
  • Up to 7mm Stitch Width
  • Select stitches can be set for a maximum width of 7mm creating attractive satin and decorative stitches.
  • Electronic Twin Needle Control
  • Select stitches automatically adjust for twin needle sewing with just the touch of a button.
  • 13 Needle Positions
  • Needle position can be changed for individual projects like inserting zippers, cording and topstitching.
  • Editing Capabilities
  • It’s easy to make changes or replace your selections within the Memory Module.
  • Error Warning
  • An audible warning alerts the sewer if something is incorrect. The audible warning can be deactivated, if desired.
  • Pattern Override Memory
  • Select a pattern, override the width and/or length, place the stitch in a Memory Module, and the machine will remember those changes for future use.
  • Sewing Speed
  • With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.
  • Automatic Presser Foot Pressure Control
  • The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is adjusted automatically. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot pressure adjustments.
  • Automatic Tension
  • This system ensures stable stitch quality regardless of the type of fabric.
  • Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
  • Advantageous when placing multiple layers or bulky fabric under the presser foot.
  • Free Arm
  • Provides professional results and easy access to cuffs, collars, pant hems and other difficult-to-reach areas.
  • 7-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 provides for much more accurate feeding of the fabric.
  • Box Feed
  • This is a function 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.
  • Drop Feed
  • A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms and button sewing.
  • Extension Table
  • Provides a larger working area, an essential for quilting, home decor sewing or when working with a larger project.
  • Snap-On Presser Feet
  • Easily change most presser feet without use of a screwdriver.
  • Heavy Duty Metal Frame
  • The internal rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for skip-free sewing and overall durability.
  • Standard Accessories
  • All-Purpose Foot, Buttonhole Foot, Button Sewing Foot, Blind Hem Foot, Satin Stitch Foot, Zipper Foot, Overcasting Foot, Screwdrivers, Bobbins, Thread Spool caps, Seam Ripper / Lint Brush, Auxiliary Spool Pin, Edge Quilting Guide.
  • Value-Added Accessories

No Power Cord, How Can I Use This With No Power Cord??

I purchased this machine on April 30, 2014 and got a great deal. However, when it arrived at my home there was no power cord and no foot pedal. Called Singer and they sent a foot pedal ASAP, but I was told that the power cord was back ordered. Here I sit, June 5, and STILL, no power cord. This could be a great machine, but without the power cord, I'll never know. For now it's just a big paper weight. Giving it two stars because the deal was great, and Singer rep did try to help me, but it's not her fault that the power cords are on back order. How exactly does that happen? You would think Singer knows we all need power cords to get our machines going.

Haven't sewn in years, but decided to get back to it. I bought this machine and have been so happy with all the functions. I find it very user friendly and would recommend to anyone who wants to experience computerized sewing.

Good Value, Great Features, Takes A Little Learning All The Features

Haven't used it a lot but what I have it's nice and smooth . I have a lot of learning to do. The only thing was my foot pedal did not work, I'm waiting for them to send me a new one, the start/stop button works great but I'd rather use the foot pedal.
